546 AM CST SUN FEB 7 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 0155 AM CST SUN FEB 07 2016

A strong upper level trough is beginning to dig across the Upper
Midwest this morning and will drag down a strong cold front this
evening. We will see a mixture of sunshine and high and mid level
clouds today. Today will be mild with temperatures climbing in the
middle 50s. Winds will increase out of the west and southwest
today and shift to northwest by this evening with the passage of
the front. Winds gusts today will be approaching 35 mph this
afternoon and evening.

Fire weather conditions will be a concern but not technically
hitting Red Flag criteria for areas of southeast Kansas and
western Missouri. See the fire weather section below for more
details. Cloud cover rapidly moves in tonight and snow flurries or
light snow showers will be possible by early tomorrow morning.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 0155 AM CST SUN FEB 07 2016

Monday will be very windy and much colder. Northwest winds will
gusts up to 40 to 45 mph at times. A wind advisory is looking more
likely for tomorrow. The high temperature will likely occur
shortly after midnight tonight and remain steady or slowly fall
during the day on Monday with temperatures likely around the lower
30s or upper 20s by the afternoon. Wind chills will be in the
teens to single digits during the day.

There will be enough moisture for flurries likely or bands of
light snow showers especially over central Missouri and the
eastern half of the Ozarks. There may be a light dusting of
accumulation at most but significant impacts are not expected. The
wind and cold will be the main weather story. Wind chills by
Monday night into Tuesday morning will be down to around zero
possible.

The deep trough over the eastern half of the U.S. hangs around
through Tuesday with cold weather through mid week for the Ozarks
region. Another cold front will move through Tuesday night into
Wednesday with no weather associated with it. This feature will
just reinforce the cold weather through Wednesday.

The trough begins to lift out of the area and the upper level flow
becomes more west-northwest by Thursday with a slow moderation of
temperatures for the end of the week. Temperatures will be back to
seasonable levels by Friday and Saturday. The weather looks mainly
dry for the rest of the week into the early part of the weekend.
Models still indicate another system on the horizon to watch in
about 8 to 9 days out.

&&

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday Morning)
Issued at 0539 AM CST SUN FEB 07 2016

Pilots can expect VFR conditions and increasing westerly winds today
at area terminals. Winds will veer to the northwest tonight and
remain gusty as a cold front moves across the region. Clouds will
increase tonight with gradually lowering cloud decks. Could see
some MVFR ceilings toward sunrise Monday. Low level wind shear
will impact the area this morning and again tonight.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
Issued at 0300 PM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

With the approaching front and wind shift today, gusty winds will
occur with continued dry vegetation. Ignition of natural cover
fires is easy in the dry brush with a few fires reported in the
region recently. The fire spread component will definitely be on
the increase today and continue Monday and Tuesday with higher
winds. RH values don`t make it to Red Flag criteria (close today),
but the basic message of harder to control outdoor burning
continues to be stressed in the HWO, fire weather forecast,
special weather statement, and social media.

1051 PM CST SAT FEB 6 2016

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Sunday)
Issued at 0300 PM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

Generally quiet weather occurred again today. Dry weather and some
modest wind gusts are causing a somewhat elevated fire weather
risk/concern.

An upper level speed max/shortwave over MT will move southeast
into the Midwest Sunday with an initial veering sfc wind shift
moving through the cwfa Sunday. Gusty winds will occur Sunday but
colder air and clouds will lag the wind shift, so expect one more
mild, albeit blustery day.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)
Issued at 0300 PM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

An upper level trough/closed low will develop over the Great
Lakes region while a large scale upper ridge builds along the
west coast. Colder and windy conditions will develop Sunday night
and continue into Monday. Clouds and some snow flurries/snow
showers are still expected on the west/back side of the main upper
low late Sunday night into Monday as a small scale disturbance
moves southeast through MO. Will maintain a very light (wind
blown) snow accumulation for that time frame but am not expecting
widespread serious travel impacts.

Winds/temperatures will combine to produce wind chills in the
single digits (deg F) Monday night into Tuesday.

The cold air mass/long wave trough will shift off to the east
through midweek with moderating temperatures. A moisture starved
weak shortwave and sfc front/wave will pass through late
Wednesday night or early Thursday with little fanfare. The
general NW upper level flow pattern will keep things dry through
Day 7/Saturday as an upper low remains positioned north of the
Great Lakes and a ridge is maintained over western NOAM.

Issued at 0300 PM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

An upper level trough/closed low will develop over the Great
Lakes region while a large scale upper ridge builds along the
west coast. Colder and windy conditions will develop Sunday night
and continue into Monday. Clouds and some snow flurries/snow
showers are still expected on the west/back side of the main upper
low late Sunday night into Monday as a small scale disturbance
moves southeast through MO. Will maintain a very light (wind
blown) snow accumulation for that time frame but am not expecting
widespread serious travel impacts.

Winds/temperatures will combine to produce wind chills in the
single digits (deg F) Monday night into Tuesday.

The cold air mass/long wave trough will shift off to the east
through midweek with moderating temperatures. A moisture starved
weak shortwave and sfc front/wave will pass through late
Wednesday night or early Thursday with little fanfare. The
general NW upper level flow pattern will keep things dry through
Day 7/Saturday as an upper low remains positioned north of the
Great Lakes and a ridge is maintained over western NOAM.

For the KSGF/KJLN/KBBG tafs: VFR conditions are expected. A cold
front will approach the taf sites late in the taf period with

.FIRE WEATHER...
Issued at 0300 PM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

With the approaching front and wind shift on Sunday, gusty winds
will occur with continued dry vegetation. Ignition of natural
cover fires is easy in the dry brush with a few fires reported in
the region recently. The fire spread component will definitely be
on the increase Sunday and continue Monday and Tuesday with higher
winds. RH values don`t make it to Red Flag criteria (close on
Sunday), but the basic message of harder to control outdoor
burning continues to be stressed in the HWO, fire weather
forecast, and social media.

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Sunday)
Issued at 0300 PM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

Generally quiet weather occurred again today. Dry weather and some

risk/concern.

An upper level speed max/shortwave over MT will move southeast
into the Midwest Sunday with an initial veering sfc wind shift
moving through the cwfa Sunday. Gusty winds will occur Sunday but
colder air and clouds will lag the wind shift, so expect one more
mild, albeit blustery day.

Mostly quiet weather across the area this morning. An upper level
wave is currently moving southeastward across the Red River Valley
region. This feature is bring a few high and mid level clouds
across the area this morning. Radar shows a few sprinkles or
flurries possible but doubt any of this is reaching the ground.

Scattered clouds this morning will give way to plenty of sunshine

temperatures will warm into the lower 50s which is not too bad for
early February standards.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 0228 AM CST SAT FEB 06 2016

A strong deep trough will begin to develop across the Upper
Midwest and Great Lakes Region on Sunday into Monday. A strong
cold front will approach the area late Sunday. Winds will become
more breezy during the day on Sunday from the West-Southwest.
Sunday will be mild temperatures in the middle 50s.

The strong cold front moves through Sunday evening and night.
Winds will become Northwesterly and gusty. The high temperature
for Monday may actually occur around midnight with a steady or
slow falling temperatures during the day on Monday. Model
guidance indicates winds sustained around 30 mph with gusts up to
45 mph likely. A wind advisory may be needed for Monday.

Monday will be a cold, very windy, and cloudy day with off and on
snow flurries or light snow showers possible. Models hint at this
especially on the Ozark Plateau and across the northeastern half
of the area. There is a low potential for a trace to light dusting
possible but impacts are not expected at this time. Wind chills
Monday into Monday night will be in the teens to lower single
digits by Tuesday morning.

The flow flattens out by middle and end of next week with a
moderation of temperatures. Seasonable weather returns by mid week
with slightly above average temperatures by end of the week. No
significant precip chances through the next 7 days. Something to
watch in the long term...some long range models indicate a

In the near term, fire weather is a modest concern. RH values have
again fallen to into the 20s with a few modest wind gusts of
15kts/15-20 mph at times over southern MO. Winds will die down
toward sunset.

Mid/high level clouds will increase with a shortwave passage
tonight. Then it looks quiet for Saturday, but continued dry.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday Night through Friday)
Issued at 0225 PM CST FRI FEB 05 2016

Another more substantial system and cold front will move through
on Sunday. Initially fire weather will be a concern with
increasing and shifting sfc winds and continued low afternoon RH
values.

Much colder air with windy weather is expected Monday with
clouds/flurries on the backside of a closed upper low moving from
the Midwest into the OH Vly.

A western CONUS ridge and eastern trough will keep our area in a
dry upper level nw flow pattern for much of next week. We expect
a couple of frontal passages/wind shifts next week with clouds at
times. A cold start will moderate as the heart of the cold air
mass shifts off to the east. High temperatures in the 50s are
expected Thu and looks to be the warmest day for the work week
next week with a modest cool down for Fri.

Fire weather will continue to be a concern at times with dry
fuels and little in the way of meaningful precip. The RH/wind
combo in the fcst doesn`t reach warning criteria, but any day
with gusty winds will at least reach the elevated category.

Another more substantial system and cold front will move through

increasing and shifting sfc winds and continued low afternoon RH
values.

Much colder air with windy weather is expected Monday with
clouds/flurries on the backside of a closed upper low moving from
the Midwest into the OH Vly.

A western CONUS ridge and eastern trough will keep our area in a
dry upper level nw flow pattern for much of next week. We expect
a couple of frontal passages/wind shifts next week with clouds at
times. A cold start will moderate as the heart of the cold air
mass shifts off to the east. High temperatures in the 50s are
expected Thu and looks to be the warmest day for the work week
next week with a modest cool down for Fri.

Fire weather will continue to be a concern at times with dry
fuels and little in the way of meaningful precip. The RH/wind
combo in the fcst doesn`t reach warning criteria, but any day
with gusty winds will at least reach the elevated category.

This disturbance will move southeastward today and tonight. We

The weekend is not look too bad with mostly sunny to partly cloudy
skies and high temperatures slightly above average. Dry weather is
expected through Sunday evening. Will need to watch Sunday
afternoon for an elevated fire danger across southeast Kansas and
portions of western Missouri. Winds will become breezy and gusty
with a relatively dry airmass in place.

A deep trough will build across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes
region by Monday and Tuesday. A strong cold front will move
through late Sunday night into Monday morning. Clouds and a few
sprinkles or flurries may accompany the front. The main core of
the cold airmass will be just to our east across the Ohio River
Valley region. Models indicate a cold and windy day across the
Missouri Ozarks on Monday with scattered snow flurries or very
light snow showers. At this time...not expecting any accumulations
or impacts but it will be a reminder that Winter is still around.
Wind chills may drop down into the teens and single digits early
next week.

The deep trough lifts out of the region and somewhat flatten flow
returns for middle of next week. Temperatures will rebound back to

...Seasonably Cool Through The Weekend...Cold Snap Early Next
Week...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 0231 AM CST FRI FEB 05 2016

High clouds are on the increase this morning from west to east as
the next upper level wave is moving across the High Plains region.
This disturbance will move southeastward today and tonight. We
will only see mid and high level cloudiness from this moisture
starved system. Will not rule out a few sprinkles or flurries
possible tonight across the far southwest corner of the area
including portions of southeast Kansas. There should not be any
impacts if this occurs.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 0231 AM CST FRI FEB 05 2016

The weekend is not look too bad with mostly sunny to partly cloudy
skies and high temperatures slightly above average. Dry weather is
expected through Sunday evening. Will need to watch Sunday
afternoon for an elevated fire danger across southeast Kansas and
portions of western Missouri. Winds will become breezy and gusty
with a relatively dry airmass in place.

A deep trough will build across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes
region by Monday and Tuesday. A strong cold front will move
through late Sunday night into Monday morning. Clouds and a few
sprinkles or flurries may accompany the front. The main core of
the cold airmass will be just to our east across the Ohio River
Valley region. Models indicate a cold and windy day across the
Missouri Ozarks on Monday with scattered snow flurries or very
light snow showers. At this time...not expecting any accumulations
or impacts but it will be a reminder that Winter is still around.
Wind chills may drop down into the teens and single digits early
next week.

The deep trough lifts out of the region and somewhat flatten flow
returns for middle of next week. Temperatures will rebound back to
more seasonable levels with dry weather. There is no significant
or measurable precip in the forecast over the next 7 days for the
local area.

Issued at 1104 PM CST THU FEB 04 2016

Mid/upper level cloud cover starting to push into eastern KS late
this evening in advance of next shortwave. The cloud cover will
increase late tonight over the TAF locations but ceilings will
remain VFR through the period.

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Friday)
Issued at 0223 PM CST THU FEB 04 2016

Quiet and dry weather is expected. A sfc ridge of high pressure
will move through tonight and early Friday then shift off to the
east and southeast Friday afternoon. High temperatures should be
a few degrees warmer Friday.

.LONG TERM...(Friday Night through Thursday)
Issued at 0223 PM CST THU FEB 04 2016

The main weather impacts will be fire weather at times through
this period and cold/windy weather Mon/Mon night.

A moisture starved shortwave and weak sfc front will move through
the region Fri night with an increase in clouds along with a
chance of sprinkles/flurries for some areas. It will clear from
west to east Saturday. Sunday will remain dry and milder with
southwest winds ahead of the next approaching front. Moderate
fire weather concerns are expected Sunday afternoon, but winds
will likely remain below Red Flag criteria.

A high amplitude upper level pattern with a ridge over along the
west coast of NOAM and a trough in the east will allow cold air to
move south out into the eastern CONUS. Our area will take somewhat
of a glancing blow in terms of the cold air, but it will still be
cloudy, unseasonably cold, and blustery Monday behind a cold
front. We are expecting wind chill values in the single digits
(deg F) Mon night into Tue.

Temperatures will moderate through the midweek period as the cold
air mass moves off to the east. By day 7 (Thu) a return to warmer
than normal temperatures is expected.
