SHORT TERM. (Through Late Tuesday Night) Issued at 1255 PM CST Mon Mar 1 2021
Mild and tranquil conditions will be the name of the game in the short term period. We find ourselves in a split flow regime, with the more active southern stream remaining south of the region, while the northern stream disturbances continue to pass to the north. This regime will change little through the short term period.
A surface ridge anchored over the Upper Midwest will bring large scale subsidence over the next 36 hours. Despite a few high clouds associated with the southern stream disturbances over southeast MO and southwest IL, generally clear conditions are expected through the period. Low temperatures tonight will dip into the mid/upper 20s (coolest in western IL closest to the surface ridge axis). On Tuesday, an upper-level low will meander across the south-central CONUS, but latest guidance continues to suggest it will scoot just south of the region on Tuesday. Therefore, other than a few mid/high clouds, the region will remain unscathed by this system as it passes to the south. Highs tomorrow will climb into the low/mid 50s.
LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Next Monday) Issued at 1255 PM CST Mon Mar 1 2021
An usually tranquil early March weather pattern is expected over the next week or so. This is largely due to a split, upper-level flow regime, which will place eastern MO and western IL in the middle of the more active northern and southern stream branches.
A cutoff upper-level low will be centered just off the coast of California on Wednesday. This system will be the main focus of the period as it wobbles across the south-central CONUS. The latest ensemble suite (EPS/GEFS/CMCE) all suggest that a northern stream trough will deepen across the northeastern CONUS by mid to late week. This deepening trough will act to deflect the upper-level low further south into OK/AR/LA, thus missing our region completely. Therefore, we will continue the trend of a dry forecast through the end of the week into the upcoming weekend.
For the spring lovers out there, as we get into this weekend and beyond (outside the scope of our official forecast), it does appear that thicknesses will continue to increase over the area as the pattern shifts to more of a western trough and eastern ridge. This will allow for even warmer temperatures (likely into the 60s) to infiltrate the region by early to middle of next week.
AVIATION. (For the 00z TAFs through 00z Tuesday Evening) Issued at 508 PM CST Mon Mar 1 2021
VFR conditions will prevail as high pressure slides across the upper Mississippi Valley. Light winds overnight will pick up a bit tomorrow morning as they become southerly by the afternoon, though wind gusts will be limited.
