Area Forecast Discussion . Updated Aviation National Weather Service Saint Louis MO 950 PM CDT Sun Sep 26 2021

SHORT TERM. (Through Late Monday Night) Issued at 307 PM CDT Sun Sep 26 2021

Warm, dry, and sunny conditions continued today as the mid Mississippi valley remains positioned along the northwestern periphery of a broad area of high pressure. However, temperatures managed to climb a few degrees warmer this afternoon than the day before, generally in the low to mid 80s with a few locations threatening to graze 90 degrees within the next hour or two. This likely due to a combination of an approaching upper level ridge from the west, and also the development of robust southwesterly low level flow. These breezy southwest winds, which have approached 25 mph at times across central and northwest Missouri, will diminish overnight, and most can expect a cool, pleasant evening and overnight period.

By tomorrow, the aforementioned upper ridge will continue to move east, and by mid afternoon its axis should be centered across the central plains. Meanwhile, a tightening pressure gradient will bring slightly increased southwesterly winds to the region, resulting in a hot but breezy afternoon. In fact, due to continue narrow ensemble temperature spreads and a climatologically favored setup for above normal temperatures in the region, forecast afternoon maximums for Monday are well within striking distance of all time records at all local climate stations (St. Louis, Columbia, and Quincy). These conditions will also support an increased risk of erratic fire behavior, which is discussed in more detail in the fire weather section below. Winds will once again diminish by early evening, and temperature should cool quickly as well.

LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Next Sunday) Issued at 307 PM CDT Sun Sep 26 2021

By Tuesday, the upper ridge will continue to amplify and will likely be centered directly above Missouri by mid afternoon. As such, temperatures will remain well above average, with very little change from Tuesday. Meanwhile, the pressure gradient is expected to relax, which will act to substantially reduce wind speeds. The end result will be yet another hot and dry late September afternoon, which may feel less comfortable after the loss of those breezy afternoon winds.

Mid week and beyond, models continue to indicate that the much discussed upper ridge will continue to slowly move east, essentially becoming squeezed between a slow-moving trough across the eastern U.S., and another trough emerging from the Rockies. As such, this will place the Mississippi valley within a region of southwesterly, and even southerly upper flow at times. This will also open the door for a weakening shortwave to move into the central plains, possibly absorbing one or more impulses of with tropical origins as it does so. However, given the nature of this weak system, models continue to poorly handle many of the mesoscale features, and confidence remains low regarding the impacts we will experience locally.

In general, moisture return is expected to increase ahead of this system across the central plains and Mississippi valley Wednesday and Thursday. Precipitation chances will also increase in kind, but confidence remains very low regarding the timing and location of precipitation, given the uncertainties already mentioned. In fact, while there seems to be a slight trend toward a wetter overall forecast, the majority of ensemble members remain quite dry locally for the next week. The NBM remains especially dry, with 50th percentile QPF values of 0" each day for the next week. It does seem that there is a slight preference for areas of central and southeast Missouri to see showers/thunderstorms, but again confidence remains low.

Otherwise, well above average temperatures are likely to continue Wednesday, with a gradual moderating trend expected over the latter half of the week.

AVIATION. (For the 06z TAFs through 06z Monday Night) Issued at 941 PM CDT Sun Sep 26 2021

Southerly surface winds will veer around to a southwest direction Monday morning and become gusty with a surface ridge centered over the southeastern US. A westerly low level jet over northern MO and central IL will result in LLWS late tonight and early Monday morning with west-southwest winds at 2000 feet in height around 40-45 kts. A clear sky will continue through the period.

SPECIFICS FOR KSTL: Southerly surface winds will veer around to a southwest direction Monday morning and become gusty with a surface ridge centered over the southeastern US. A westerly low level jet over northern MO and central IL will result in LLWS late tonight and early Monday morning with west-southwest winds at 2000 feet in height around 40 kts. A clear sky will continue through the period.

FIRE WEATHER. Issued at 307 PM CDT Sun Sep 26 2021

Breezy southwest winds, low humidity, and well above average temperatures will combine to produce elevated fire weather conditions Monday afternoon.

Winds are expected to be light early tomorrow morning, but will quickly increase during the mid to late morning. By early afternoon, sustained wind speeds of 10 to 15 mph can be expected, with gusts between 20 and 30 mph at times. Meanwhile, Relative humidity values will likely fall to between 25 and 30 percent in most areas by mid afternoon, with temperatures climbing into the low 90s. The breeziest winds and lowest humidity values are both expected to overlap across central and northeast Missouri, as well as west-central Illinois. Meanwhile, a prolonged period of dry conditions, coupled with the warm and breezy conditions today, have allowed fine dead fuels to dry. While conditions are not likely to reach "critical" levels, there is high confidence that several hours of elevated fire weather conditions will be realized from early to late afternoon Monday.
