.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 225 AM CDT MON MAR 30 2015

A surface high is currently over southeastern Kansas this morning
and moving to the southeast. Skies were clear and temperatures
were seasonably cool this morning in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
A light southerly breeze will return today under sunny skies which
will help boost temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. A
gorgeous day is in the forecast today followed by a pleasant night.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 225 AM CDT MON MAR 30 2015

Upper level ridging and height rises mean warmer temperatures for
Tuesday and Wednesday. A weak wind shift boundary may move through
on Tuesday with a few more clouds around but no precip is expected
or remain to our south. Temperatures will be in the middle to
upper 70s on Tuesday and maybe reaching near 80 by Wednesday.

The models are in good agreement with the next storm system
and have slowed it down somewhat beginning to affect the area very
late Wednesday night into Thursday. It appears the front may slow
down or briefly stall on Thursday and Thursday night across the
area as a wave of low pressure develops along it. There will be
a good chance of thunderstorms and some could be on the strong
side. SPC has most of the area highlighted in a slight risk for
severe weather on Thursday. Will keep an eye on
trends...atmospheric ingredients...and timing for some severe weather
around the Thursday time frame.

We could see a couple rounds of thunderstorms Thursday into early
Friday before this system finally kicks out of the area late
Friday. Cooler and drier weather return behind the front for next


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday Morning)
Issued at 624 AM CDT MON MAR 30 2015

Pilots can expect VFR conditions today through tonight as surface
high pressure transitions eastward across the region.  Light
southerly surface winds will develop during the day.
