.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Tuesday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Mon Sep 18 2017

Widespread clouds and occasional showers and thunderstorms
continue across the region this afternoon, as a series of
shortwaves push east-northeast across the area. Precipitation
should start to come to an end this evening as the bulk of the mid
level wave sweeps through.

Skies will be slow to clear tonight, but enough breaks may
develop to allow for fog across the eastern Ozarks overnight.
Right now it doens`t look to be too dense, and will likely be most
widespread in protected/sheltered valleys. Further to the west,
increasing southerly winds should limit any fog development.

Tuesday will continue the trend of very summer like weather, with
breezy south/southeast winds and highs in the upper 80s to near

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday Night through Monday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Mon Sep 18 2017

Warm and breezy conditions will persist through most of the
extended, as strong upper level riding remains in place across the
eastern half of the United States. A few diurnally driven
thunderstorms are possible by the weekend, but otherwise, most of
the area should remain dry. Highs each day will warm into the
upper 80s to near 90 degrees, with lows in the upper 60s.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night)
Issued at 1120 PM CDT Mon Sep 18 2017

For the KSGF, KJLN, and KBBG TAF: Areas of fog are developing
across central Missouri late this evening. Winds are a tab
stronger farther south and west and over all the better fog
potential should remain north and east of the TAF sites. Some
light fog is not out of the question later tonight closer to the
TAF sites, but at this time the stronger winds should help to
limit the fog potential at the TAF sites.

The wind will continue  to pick and and become gusty out of the
south Tuesday afternoon and evening.


MO...Dense Fog Advisory until 9 AM CDT Tuesday for MOZ055>058-067>071.
