Gusty north winds will become light and variable during the early

cold front moves through these areas after sunrise on Thursday.
The front will be close to the AMA TAF site by late in this

.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 642 AM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018/

For the 12Z TAFs, an upper level storm system will continue
moving east and southeast away from our fcst area this morning
with most precipitation now moving east of the TAF sites. Cigs
will gradually erode and dissipate by 18Z today. Gusty north
winds will subside durg this fcst period, becoming light and
variable by 01Z Thursday, and then south to southwest less than
10 knots after 04Z.


PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 345 AM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018/

Not much change to this forecast package. Showers and isolated
thunderstorms have been affecting the majority of the area tonight
and are expected to persist through the morning hours. Skies
should clear out this afternoon and allow temps to climb from the
chilly feeling 20s right now into the 60s. The mid level closed
low over Nebraska/Kansas right now should continue diving
southeast towards the Gulf in the deep South. A shortwave riding
through the flow will send a cold front through the area tomorrow
starting mid morning in the northwest and pushing southeast. Winds
will again be breezy with the front but moisture is lacking near
the surface for the precip. The next upper level system is still
slated to come onshore in the west over the weekend and bring more
chances for precip starting Sunday during the day. Storms will
be likely to have on and off periods through at least mid week.
The day 7 or 8 carrot for severe weather continues to elude us
and stay at day 7 or 8, so for now severe weather is still not
expecting through the beginning of next week.
