- Strong winds and very high fire danger on Monday.

- Getting into active pattern starting Thu and continuing through the weekend.

Issued at 315 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Water vapor imagery currently shows some shortwave energy sinking southeast across eastern Nebraska into Northeast KS with a more robust upper wave moving into British Columbia.
Meanwhile at the surface, high pressure is situated over southwest Nebraska/nw KS and encompasses the majority of the Plains.

Looking for a fairly pleasant day today across the area with light winds and highs a few degrees below normal. Surface high will slide into the Arklatex/Lower Mississippi Valley region by Monday afternoon as lee troughing deepens as strong jet energy moves-in from the Northern Rockies. This will setup strong pressure gradient along with strong southwest winds area wide for Mon. Wouldn't be shocked if we end up needing a wind advisory for Mon afternoon, especially across central KS. Still looking for the upper impulse to track across the Northern Plains Mon evening and into the Upper Mississippi Valley by Tue afternoon. This will allow a weak cold front to move through the forecast area during the day Tue and should push through the entire area by late Tue afternoon. Rainfall chances continue to lower with each model run so confidence in any location picking up meaningful rainfall is very low at this time for Mon night- Tue.

For Wed into Wed evening, a brief period of upper ridging is expected to move across the region as the surface high moves into the Great Lakes region. Meanwhile, a fast moving compact shortwave is forecast to lift out of the Desert Southwest and over the Four Corners region by Thu afternoon. GFS has stayed the course with the timing of this feature and the last couple runs of the ECMWF have come around to this faster GFS solution.
Ahead of this impulse, moisture transport will start to ramp-up late Tue night into Wed morning and may bring some sct convection to OK and parts of southern KS. By Thu afternoon, shortwave will be moving out into the High Plains with a dryline setting up from southwest KS down into the TX Panhandle.
Meanwhile, over the eastern half of KS, strong 850-700mb moisture transport, near and north of a lifting warm front, should support at least sct showers and storms into the early evening.

Confidence starts to drop off for the Fri-Sat time frame. The GFS is more progressive with the upper wave and tracks it across eastern KS on Fri, while the ECMWF lift it into west-central Nebraska. At this time it appears at least eastern KS would be in play for storms on Fri and possibly areas further west if the ECMWF verifies. Then for Sat both ECMWF and GFS dig a deep western CONUS upper trough and progress it very slowly east into Sun. The trend so far with this trough has been to slow it down and dig it deeper. Over the Plains, confidence is high that there will be plenty of rich moisture around for both Sat and Sun. However, with the better upper dynamics further west, confidence on widespread convection is low.

Aviation concerns are expected to remain on the low side.

Scattered mid level clouds will remain in place through at least the morning hours as an upper impulse sinks south across the Central Plains. Northwest winds are expected to remain in place today and will also remain relatively light.

Issued at 315 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Very high fire danger still looks likely on Mon afternoon.

Confidence is high that strong southwest winds will overspread the area by Mon afternoon with gusts in the 40-45 mph range likely over central KS. Afternoon RH's on Mon are forecast to generally be around 30%. These conditions will result in very high grassland fire danger for areas along and especially west of I-135.
