.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Saturday)
Issued at 217 PM CDT FRI OCT 17 2014

A Canadian high pressure will build in this weekend with dry and
seasonable weather. Generally highs will be in the 60s and lows at
night will be in the lower 40s and upper 30s. The coldest night
will be Saturday night with the center of the high pressure
passing by just to our northeast. May see some patchy frost
potential over the eastern Missouri Ozarks.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday Night through Friday)
Issued at 217 PM CDT FRI OCT 17 2014

A shortwave moving through the Great Lakes region on Monday will
bring down another cold front through the area. Moisture will be
very limited. The GFS is the most bullish on developing some
showers and QPF. Will mention slight chances for a few light
showers but most areas will be dry for Monday.

The front will just reinforce the seasonable cool and dry weather
for most of next week. The area will see slight ridging aloft but
remain in a light east to northeast flow at the surface. This will
keep temperatures in the 60s for afternoon highs and a dry
weather pattern for most of next week. Still see no significant
weather or precip chances in the next 7 to 10 days in the long
range guidance.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday Evening)
Issued at 542 PM CDT FRI OCT 17 2014

Clear skies and VFR conditions will continue through Saturday with
light northwest winds. Some patchy ground fog will be possible
late tonight in valleys protected from northwest winds. Fog was
not included in the TAFs given the expected isolated nature.
