The overnight water vapor loop and RAP analysis overlay revealed a mid-tropospheric shortwave trough centered over far eastern Colorado. This small shortwave trough was within a larger scale, broad ridge axis centered across the north central CONUS. A mesoscale convective system (MCS) tied to this disturbance was over far eastern Nebraska into north central Kansas, continuing to move away from our southwest Kansas region.

Several convection-allowing models are showing weak redevelopment of showers/isolated thunderstorms around daybreak or shortly thereafter, seemingly tied to broad, rather weak convergence/deformation of the flow field around 700mb. We pulled back a bit on the morning POPs, limiting them to 20 percent. Not too long after sunrise, south to southwest winds will increase to 20 to 25 mph as the MSLP gradient tightens east of a southwest to northeast oriented leeside trough. Later in the day, there will likely be enough low level convergence along this trough axis to initiate surface-based convection. The remnants of last night's shortwave trough will be around, however jet streak dynamics and very weak thermal advections in the lower troposphere will limit coverage and intensity of thunderstorm activity later in the afternoon, thus the reason the latest SWODY1 outlook from SPC keeps our forecast area in a Marginal (1 of 5) Risk. Since the forecast coverage will be more isolated/widely scattered in nature, there will be enough of a CAPE/Shear combination to support at least a marginal supercell or two capable of large hail, but the probability of any significant severe reports is extremely low.

On Sunday, the larger scale pattern will transition to one of broad southwest flow aloft as a large cyclonically-curved jet enters the Pacific Northwest region. This pattern will favor deep leeside troughing and a tight pressure gradient across much of the Great Plains, including southwest Kansas. The result will be wind, wind, and more wind. Sunday and Monday both are forecast to be windy to very windy with sustained south to southwest winds 20 to 35 mph gusting to 45 mph at times, particularly in the afternoon. Neither of these days will be favored for any thunderstorm activity, so the forecast will remain dry. We will be heating back up again, though, with afternoon highs upper 90s to around 100 across the western half of the forecast area. Dewpoint temperatures will not be that high, so resulting Heat Index values will be at or only slightly above the actual air temperature.

As we head deeper into the week, thunderstorm chances increase by late Tuesday/Tuesday Night as a cold front pushes south into Kansas.
Pretty good model consensus on this front and thunderstorm development along it has resulted in NBM POPs increasing to 30 to 45 percent for the Tuesday Night period. This front will likely stall out near southwest Kansas Wednesday which would keep precipitation chances in the forecast through Wednesday Night.

VFR will continue through this TAF period, outside of any convective impacts. Strong S/SW winds are expected at all airports through 00z Sun, gusting 30-32 kts. Scattered thunderstorms are expected 21z Sat - 06z Sun. Coverage will be limited, and have low confidence of direct impacts at any airport. As such, only included a VCTS/CB mention at DDC/HYS from 00-03z Sun for now. South winds will diminish some at sunset, but remain elevated through 12z Sun.
