Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Wichita KS 321 PM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
SHORT TERM. (This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 305 PM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
The eastern trough and western ridge upper flow pattern will largely dominate the weather pattern for nearly the entire forecast period with only a few waves moving through the flow over the next 7 days.
The coolest night of the next 7 days will occur tonight. Surface high pressure will be centered just to the northeast of the area under mostly clear skies which will allow temperatures will fall into the upper 30s to near 40 degrees across the area. Some higher thin cirrus may move in toward dawn but models differ on this. This mainly impacts whether patches of brief early morning frost are scattered vs widely scattered as low temperatures may end up being a degree or two higher should thin cirrus remain. With consensus that any frost would be quite brief and scattered in nature, no frost headlines are anticipated.
As the high pressure shifts off to the east and lee troughing occurs to the west throughout the day tomorrow, expect quite breezy southerly flow by tomorrow afternoon. The next pair of shortwaves embedded in the northwest flow aloft will cruise through the region on Saturday driving another cold front through the area Saturday afternoon. A couple showers will be possible across southeast KS mainly through Saturday afternoon though moisture seems to be a limiting factor for any meaningful precipitation.
LONG TERM. (Monday through Thursday) Issued at 305 PM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
The main eastern trough axis will shift east Sunday into Monday becoming centered over the Ohio Valley. While this wave shifts northeastward into New England, the Central Plains will remain under broad ridging until Monday night. Another trough will move through the NW flow pattern Monday into Tuesday bringing not much more than some gusty winds and wind shift to the area before upper ridging quickly returns by Tuesday afternoon. Expect the large scale ridging to dominate the extended period continuing dry conditions across the region. Expect a slow warming trend throughout the extended reaching above normal temperatures by mid week.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon) Issued at 1219 PM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
Aviation concerns are expected to remain on the low side through the next 24 hours.
Strong surface high stretches from western ND down into the OK Panhandle. This feature will slowly shift east through the overnight hours, allowing north winds to decrease and flip winds around to the south by late Friday morning. Confidence is high that VFR conditions will remain in place through the next 24 hours.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.
