23Z SURFACE OBS SHOW A WEAK BOUNDARY FROM KICT TO KUKL TO KOJC.
MEANWHILE WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SUGGEST A WEAK SHORTWAVE IS PASSING
THROUGH NORTHEAST AND SOUTH CENTRAL KS NOW. SINCE THE FOCUS FOR
CONVECTION IS ALREADY SOUTH OF THE TERMINALS AND INSTABILITY IS
LIKELY TO FADE WITH COOLING SURFACE TEMPS, THINK A DRY VFR
FORECAST IS LIKELY TO PREVAIL.
