DISCUSSION. Issued at 2010 PM CST Thu Jan 20 2022

Key Points:

- Another cold morning on Friday with wind chills below zero again. - Warmer temperatures through Monday. - Limited precipitation chances through next week.

Temperatures across northeast Kansas have struggled to make it into the low 20s this afternoon as a 1042 mb arctic high sits over the high plains. This surface ridge will shift east throughout the day today and into Friday causing winds to be light and skies clear. Friday morning lows will be able to dip back down into the lower single digits, with the coldest temperatures in far northeastern Kansas where radiational cooling will be most efficient. While winds will be light, wind chills on Friday morning will still be able to reach values ranging from -4 to -14 degrees. By late Friday morning and early afternoon, the pressure gradient across central and northeast Kansas will tighten and help increase winds from the south. Slight WAA will help to warm temperatures into the lower 30s across northeast Kansas Friday afternoon.

Over the weekend, a few shortwave troughs embedded in northwesterly flow will clip the northern plains and Great Lakes region. For Saturday, one shortwave will move east over the Great Lakes in the morning with an associated surface trough axis extending through Kansas. This will shift winds back to the northwest during the day. Downsloping of these winds should help to increase temperatures into the low to mid 40s on Saturday. A similar situation on Sunday will occur with a shortwave passing over the upper plains and another weak surface front changing winds back to the northwest. Downsloping winds on Sunday and Monday will continue to warm the area into the low to mid 50s.

Model guidance is continuing to pick up on a few systems that could impact the central US Monday into Tuesday. Lee troughing will occur in the northern Rockies on Monday with a surface trough moving east across the northern plains. In the same time period, a cutoff low originating from the desert southwest will eject over the Arklatex region Monday afternoon and evening. At the moment, most model and ensemble guidance keeps northeast Kansas free of precipitation with little QPF amounts as both of these systems are split between the area. As this is still several days out, timing, positioning of the cutoff low and moisture availability could vary into next week. Precipitation has been kept out of the forecast at this time because of the high uncertainty of these systems. For Wednesday, another strong surface ridge will build into the central plains and bring another cold-shot to the region.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon) Issued at 1112 AM CST Thu Jan 20 2022

VFR conditions will persist through the TAF period with winds becoming light and variable overnight. Winds will pick back up out of the south in the early afternoon hours of Friday.
