Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
608 AM CDT Sun Apr 22 2018

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday night)
Issued at 259 AM CDT Sun Apr 22 2018

Areas of light rain will continue to spiral around the mid and
upper level low as it moves from southeast Kansas and northeast
Oklahoma into Arkansas later today. This will impact locations
mainly east of the turnpike after this morning, before ending
early tonight. The clouds are expected to be slower to clear the
rest of the area as moisture wraps around the back side of the
departing low today and tonight. The clouds look to decrease
from west to east on Monday with dry weather and the return of
seasonably mild temperatures as Kansas will be between the
departing low and the next upper trof approaching from the
northern Rockies. This trof will move southeast across the
northern Plains and Midwest during Tuesday with the associated
cold front dropping southeast across Kansas. Despite rather
limited moisture we will continue to carry modest chance PoPs.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 259 AM CDT Sun Apr 22 2018

Another potentially more vigorous upper trof is expected to drop
south across the Midwest and Great Lakes later in the week with
another cold frontal passage and slight/modest chances for rain.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
Issued at 607 AM CDT Sun Apr 22 2018

Low clouds and scattered rain showers will linger across eastern
Kansas this morning. Meanwhile low clouds will gradually erode
from west to east today, with low clouds lingering longer for
eastern Kansas. Winds will remain from the north as surface high
pressure builds into the region tonight.

.FIRE WEATHER...
Issued at 259 AM CDT Sun Apr 22 2018

The latest rainfall and relatively high daytime humidity levels
will keep the fire danger low today. Even as we dry out on Monday
winds will be light with fire danger remaining low. The recent
rainfall should also promote further green-up across the area
this week.
