07z observations show a large upper level longwave trough extending from the Pacific coast to the Great Lakes and a subtropical jet along the CONUS-Mexico border. At the surface a 999 mb surface low is position near Dodge City with a tightening pressure gradient and cold front extending back into eastern Colorado.

For today the surface low will slowly move northeastward into eastern Kansas and the cold front on the back side of the low will sweep through western Kansas reaching Medicine Lodge by mid to late morning. With the tighter pressure gradient on the west side of the low we will see winds increase through the morning and early afternoon hours sustained at 15-25 mph with gusts approaching 35 mph. With the north wind there will be some fire danger...however with the cooler temperatures and higher humidity values the fire danger should be much less than this previous weekend. Winds should slowly diminish by the late afternoon and despite plenty of sunshine the cold air advection should keep high temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Tonight with lighter winds and mostly clear skies lows should fall into the upper 20s to lower 30s.

Tuesday should be a pleasant day as the surface high extends through much of Nebraska and northern Kansas this should keep the boundary layer winds out of the east to northeast direction.
This will mean another day of cooler air hanging around much of western Kansas. Mid level clouds will be on the increase as an upper level shortwave and Pacific moisture come in from the Rockies ahead of a strong subtropical jet. With the extra clouds and northeast winds temperatures should reach into the mid to upper 50s.

Main weather feature in the long term is the large trough that will move through the central and southern plains from late Wednesday night through Friday and the rain/thunderstorm/snow potential it will bring.

Issued at 1058 PM CST Sun Mar 3 2024

VFR flight category for all terminals during the time period.
Winds will increase between 12-18Z with a departing surface low moving into eastern Kansas and the pressure gradient tightening on the northwest side. Expect wind speeds of 10-20 kts with gusts to 30 kts. Winds should diminish through the afternoon and become 12 kts or less after 00Z.

Long term ensemble clusters continue to show a strong subtropical jet with winds at 130-160 kts extending across the southern CONUS with the left exit region of the jet remaining around southern Kansas Wednesday night through Friday. The clusters have consistently from run to run kept the upper level pattern as a progressive positive tilted longwave trough that will slowly move south through this time period. The varying position of the surface low continue to be fairly spread out in the Euro ensembles from eastern New Mexico through central Oklahoma while the GEFS ensembles are more clustered in the Texas panhandle to central Oklahoma. This continued trend in the long term models would suggest more spotty rain showers (with some marginal CAPE values that could have some embedded thunder)
across more of central and eastern Kansas. Long range probabilities of 0.25 inch or more continue to be across central Kansas where 70-80% chances are showing up during the two day period and as low as 30% closer to the Colorado border.

With the trend of the trough digging further south colder air is also increasing in confidence especially in the Euro ensembles where mean 850 mb temperatures in northwest and north central Kansas are as cold as -2 (C). Snowfall will mainly depend on how progressive the system will be and should the system slow down or become closed we could see higher confidence of snow for areas northwest of a Syracuse to Hays line.
