.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 332 AM CDT Fri Sep 21 2018

TROWAL type low clouds and light precipitation continues to drift in
from North Dakota, and gradient/CAA winds continue to top out around
30mph. As the day progresses, and the low gets farther from the
area, these conditions will pass, with much of the area clearing by
mid day to early afternoon, though clouds my linger in the northeast
into the evening. BUFKIT profiles also suggest daytime driven
stratocumulus shouldn`t be an issue either. In the far northeast
where clearing is latest, temperatures are expected to crash
after sunset, while farther west we see return flow. Eventually
even in the east the gradient will cause temperatures to
stabilize.


.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 332 AM CDT Fri Sep 21 2018

The weekend will feature dry conditions as the region will be
situated between high pressure to the east and low pressure to the
west. The low begins to move east late Sunday, with a frontal
boundary tracking across the area Sunday night and Monday and
becoming the focus for precipitation. Dry conditions return late
Monday night and Tuesday as high pressure settles in. Another low
pressure system and associated frontal boundary will bring
additional precipitation chances on Wednesday, before high pressure
again returns with dry conditions expected on Thursday. Little in
the way of instability associated with either front, so the
precipitation should just be in the form of rain, with little in the
way of significant accumulations.

High temperatures will be in the 70s to lower 80s over the weekend,
with highs then in the 60s through the remainder of the period.
After a couple of nights with highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s
Saturday night and Sunday night, overnight lows will generally be in
the 40s.
