AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPRINGFIELD MO
552 PM CDT Thu Apr 30 2015

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Friday)
Issued at 318 PM CDT THU APR 30 2015

Upper level closed low over Lake Michigan to dig southward into
the Ohio Valley tonight with associated surface high pressure
descending southward over Missouri on Friday. The results will be
continued benign but a bit cooler weather.

.LONG TERM...(Friday Night through Thursday)
Issued at 318 PM CDT THU APR 30 2015

Weak clipper will bring a frontal boundary across the northern
plains Saturday but only note in the SGF CWA will be an increase
in cloud cover.

Second clipper to approach the region on Monday. Medium range
models are relatively consistent with again keeping the bulk of
the precipitation north of the CWA though this may bring some
light QPF to central MO.

ECMWF and GFS agree with the approach of a closed low in the
southern stream to move into the Western Plains mid week leading
to widespread chances for rain. Additional waves of energy are
then expected as mean trough digs and southerly flow remains
intact into the weekend.

variable winds through much of the period.
