SHORT TERM. (This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 247 PM CDT Thu Sep 23 2021
Overview the next 7-10 days . The large-scale synoptic pattern favors relatively quiet and dry weather across the region through at least early next week, with a return to above normal temperatures by especially Sunday. Probabilities are increasing for off-and-on showers/storms by Tuesday-Wednesday of next week, persisting through at least late week or the weekend.
A cold front will progress south across the region Friday afternoon- evening, in response to seasonably strong/deep upper troughing digging across the north-central CONUS. Poor low-level moisture return and associated limited to NIL instability should preclude precipitation chances across the forecast area in vicinity of this frontal passage, although could see a few sprinkles and/or light showers across northeast KS associated with the passing mid-level baroclinic zone. Temperatures ahead of the front will soar into the upper 80s across southern Kansas Friday, with readings moderating slightly into the low 80s north of the front across central KS.
Deterministic and ensemble consensus supports a return to above normal temperatures and continued dry conditions through the weekend, as western CONUS upper ridging builds east. Highs will likely be pushing the low 90s by Sunday. A tight pressure gradient will also support breezy/gusty south winds Sunday.
LONG TERM. (Monday through Thursday) Issued at 247 PM CDT Thu Sep 23 2021
Above normal temperatures should persist through Monday and maybe Tuesday. By Tuesday-Wednesday and persisting through at least late week to next weekend, deterministic and ensemble consensus is coming together to support increasing off-and-on shower/storm chances across the region, as upper troughing takes shape across the central and western CONUS. While overall details are sketchy this far out regarding the placement and timing of various synoptic features, overall consensus in concert with above normal precipitable waters support increasing PoPs to 30s-40s percent mid to late next week. If this trend continues, PoPs will need to be increased further with subsequent updates. Stay tuned for later forecasts through the weekend as details become clearer.
AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) Issued at 627 PM CDT Thu Sep 23 2021
VFR conditions are expected for the next 24 hours. Could see some low level wind shear for portions of central KS overnight. During the day on Fri, a dry cold front will push south across most of the forecast area, making it into central KS during the 15-17z time frame, and into south central KS by the late afternoon.
