SHORT TERM. (This evening through Monday) Issued at 235 PM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
Warm and breezy conditions are occurring across the area. Temperatures are currently in the middle 60s, and should warm another degree or two. A dry air mass is in place and RH values in the 20 to 30 percent range will occur through the rest of this afternoon. Gusty southerly winds are also occurring, especially across southeastern Kansas and western Missouri. The combinations of these gusty winds and dry conditions are leading to elevated to significant fire weather risk. Will maintain the Red Flag warning for portions of southeastern Kansas and western Missouri through 6 PM this evening.
Warm and breezy conditions will occur again on Monday. Highs will warm into the upper 60s to the lower 70s. Southerly winds will again gusts up to around 30 mph with the strongest gusts again across southeastern Kansas and western Missouri. Moisture will start to advect back into the area, but think it will be slow on Monday. As a result dry conditions will occur again as afternoon humidity values drop to around 25 to 30 percent. Elevated fire weather conditions will occur across the area on Monday. If we get a little drier than models indicate on Monday, some locations across southeastern Kansas and western Missouri may flirt with Red Flag Conditions again.
LONG TERM. (Monday Night through Sunday) Issued at 235 PM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
Warm and breezy conditions will occur across the area through at least Wednesday and likely into Thursday. Highs in the upper 60s to the middle 70s will be possible each afternoon. Did go on the warmer side of the ensemble model data for Highs through Wednesday. Moisture will start to advect into the area with the gusty southerly winds Tuesday into Wednesday which will limit fire weather issues.
The upper level ridge will start to flatten some late this week as an upper level trough tracks across the plains. A front will move south into the area. The front will then stall over or near the area. An upper level trough will remain to the west of the area late this week before moving through the area some time this weekend. Multiple rounds of showers and storms will be possible along the front as waves of upper level energy override the front. Therefore there will be the potential for heavy rain along the front. There is however still questions are exactly when and where the front will stall and when it will be kicked off to the east. Bottom line will be a move active period late this week into next weekend but there still questions on the exactly where the front will stall.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon) Issued at 1034 AM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
VFR conditions will occur across the area this afternoon through Monday. A few high passing clouds will be possible. Surface high pressure will remain just east of the area. The pressure gradient is tightening behind the high across southeastern Kansas and western Missouri. Gusty southerly winds will be possible this afternoon into early this evening and again on Monday morning and afternoon.
