AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPRINGFIELD MO
606 AM CDT Sun Jul 20 2014

...Updated Aviation Section...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 240 AM CDT SUN JUL 20 2014

It is a quiet morning across southeast Kansas and the Missouri
Ozarks. Skies were generally mostly clear and winds were light.
Temperatures starting off in the lower 60s this morning a few degrees
milder than the previous morning. Mostly sunny skies will continue
today with temperatures a few degrees warmer into the middle and
upper 80s.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 240 AM CDT SUN JUL 20 2014

There are no changes in the forecast for next week. Height rises
with an upper level ridge building across the southern and central
U.S. will bring warmer temperatures for this upcoming week. The
hottest day appears to be Tuesday afternoon where highs will be in
the lower and middle 90s. The heat index values will be between
100 and 104 a few days this week. It will be the warmest weather
so far this Summer but nothing unheard of for late July.

A shortwave will ride over the ridge through the Midwest by mid
week and bring down a weak front. This will bring a chance for
scattered showers and thunderstorms late Tuesday night through
Wednesday night before the front eventually washes out.
Temperatures will cool off a few degrees for the end of the week
but around seasonable average for late July. Another shortwave and
front will move into the area by next weekend and bring another
round of showers and thunderstorms.

There is some indication in the longer range models of another
strong trough developing across the Midwest and eastern U.S. just
beyond next weekend which would bring another break from the
Summertime heat and much cooler temperatures towards the end of
July.
