Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1144 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday night)
Issued at 223 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

Upper level low pressure system was located over southeast Kansas
as of 19z with rain showers now having pushed east into central
and south central Missouri. Area north of the low in northeast
Kansas into northwest Missouri was fairly covered in light to
moderate rainfall and this more solid area of rain is expected to
push southeast across the area as the low moves through late this
afternoon and tonight. So we will have high pops all evening with
rain tapering off from northwest to southeast after midnight.

Another quick moving shortwave embedded in the northwest flow will
push through the area late Thursday into Thursday night, however
it now appears as if this system will move through dry.

Because of the quick moving system, the surface wind will remain
out of the northwest with most of the area continuing in cloud
cover. This will keep temperatures in check on Thursday with highs
in the mid to upper 60s.

.LONG TERM...(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 223 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

The deep trough will progress eastward over the weekend with an
upper level ridge inching eastward and over the area on Sunday.
With this we will also see an increase in warm air and moist air
advection from the Gulf of Mexico. We should see a temperature
increase with some 70s for highs on Saturday and into the upper
70s to possibly around 80 by Monday and Tuesday.

A large trough over the western U.S. will trek eastward,
eventually bringing unsettled weather to the region by midweek,
potentially as severe weather with instability increasing from the
weekend into early next week ahead of the system.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Thursday night)
Issued at 1140 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

Cloud cover associated with a slow moving system will linger over
the region through the next 24 hours. Ceilings will vary from VFR
to IFR at time through the overnight hours with slowly improving
conditions in the afternoon with High end MVFR to VFR ceilings.
