1226 PM CDT Sat May 26 2018

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Monday night)
Issued at 150 AM CDT Sat May 26 2018

Hot and humid conditions will be in place for the Holiday weekend
and Monday, as upper level ridge amplifies across the central US with
daytime highs in the 90s. Thunderstorms look to develop in the high
plains region of western Kansas Sunday afternoon and will spread
northeast for Sunday night. Looks like the bulk of this activity
will remain west of central Kansas. We should see the same thing
happen again on Monday with thunderstorms developing in western
Kansas Monday afternoon, however some of this activity could reach
central Kansas late Monday night into Tuesday morning.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Friday)
Issued at 150 AM CDT Sat May 26 2018

Confidence remains high that above normal temperatures will prevail
this period for the region. Models are also suggesting a possible
active period with night-time MCS activity affecting the region for
Tuesday-Thursday morning. Meanwhile long range models show upper
level ridge trying to re-establish itself on Friday which could
bring even warmer temperatures to the region.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon)
Issued at 1225 PM CDT Sat May 26 2018

VFR conditions currently dominate the region. These VFR conditions
are expected to remain in control through the TAF period.
