SHORT TERM. (Today through Tuesday night) Issued at 258 AM CDT Sun Jun 13 2021
Better lower level drying has taken place within the weak surface ridge across eastern Kansas with more comfortable, near seasonal warmth expected this afternoon across central and southeast Kansas. Except for some anvil debris from the Panhandles MCS early this morning, expect plenty of sunshine today as well. Late day convective chances will focus within a moderate to strong instability axis across the high Plains. The NAM continues to show a consistent and reasonable signal for an MCS to form across western Nebraska tonight and dive southward within the mean flow and instability axis across western Kansas. Some of this activity could graze Russell and Barton counties, so will the keep slight PoPs in the forecast Monday morning. The upper ridge will continue to amplify from the Four Corners region into south central Canada into Tuesday. It is possible a weak front could backdoor far eastern Kansas, though it looks to have little impact on the sensible weather across the area.
LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Saturday) Issued at 258 AM CDT Sun Jun 13 2021
A more scorching heat looks to return for the mid-week periods as the upper ridge axis re-orients itself from the central Plains across the Midwest. High temperatures will approach 100F for the first time this Summer across portions of central Kansas Wednesday and Thursday. The main challenge is the potential and timing of a cold frontal passage late in the week which could bring heat relief in the form of slightly cooler (less hot) temperatures and also precip/convective chances. In this regard, the GFS is a bit more progressive and further south with the upper trof diving across the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes by Friday, and likewise a faster and stronger surface frontal passage. For now will continue to show only subtly cooler temperatures Friday into Saturday with slight precip chances centered on Friday night.
AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning) Issued at 616 AM CDT Sun Jun 13 2021
Cluster of showers/storms should remain south of the KS/OK border this morning. Otherwise, SCT-BKN 3000-4500 ft AGL ceilings will impact portions of central and south-central Kansas this morning. For tonight, a cluster of thunderstorms is expected to progress south across western portions of Nebraska and Kansas, which could clip RSL-GBD late tonight.
