High pressure is currently over the region bringing clear and
quiet weather for the Missouri Ozarks. Southern winds will begin
to return today and the weekend. Temperatures will be seasonable warm
today and the warming trend will continue into the weekend with
above average temperatures. Highs will be near 80 by Sunday. A
flat upper level ridge over the southern U.S. will keep the
weather quiet for the area. Winds will become somewhat breezy by
Sunday with low pressure forming over the High Plains region. Wind

.LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Thursday)
Issued at 226 AM CDT FRI MAY 1 2015

An upper shortwave will move out across the Central Plains and
Upper Midwest by Monday morning along with a cold front that will
run out of momentum. There may be a slight chance for a shower or
storm brushing by across southeast Kansas or west central Missouri
by Monday morning but most of the area will escape any rain as
this system stays mainly northwest of our area.

The middle and end of next week looks more unsettled and
potentially stormy. An upper level low pressure system will move
out of the Four Corners region of the country into the Central
Plains region by Wednesday into Thursday. The next better
potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms will start up
Wednesday afternoon and linger through at least Thursday or Friday
as a series of upper level waves moves across the central portion
of the country. If the instability and other certain conditions can
materialize...we could see a few stronger storms possible late
next week. It will be warm and breezy much of next week with
slightly above average temperatures.
