Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
157 AM 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 06Z TAFS through 06Z Saturday night)
Issued at 1032 PM CDT Fri May 25 2018

Aviation concerns are expected to remain on the low side through
the next 24 hours.

The few storms that developed over northwest KS quickly
dissipated as they tracked east early this evening. Upper ridging
is expected to track from the Rockies into the central and
southern Plains. This will keep storm chances out of the forecast
for Saturday and leave VFR conditions in place.
