Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 528 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 ..updated for 00z aviation discussion... Short term...(this evening through wednesday) issued at 223 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 A clipper system moving across the upper Mississippi Valley area today will move over the Great Lakes area tonight and Monday. In the wake of this system...increasing large-scale forcing for subsidence will combine with steep low-level lapse rates and continued low level cold air advection resulting in strong northwest winds across the Central Plains states. Time/height cross-sections of wind/mixing layer height suggest wind speeds may be higher on Monday compared to today and headlines for fire weather/wind will likely be extended into the afternoon hours on Monday across the region. Trended maximum temperatures down slightly with limited insolation as a steady stream of middle and high level clouds may dampen the diurnal climb. Tue-Wed...northwest middle/upper flow will prevail through the period although gusty northwest winds will diminish. Dry weather conditions and moderating temperatures are anticipated through middle week...especially across south central Kansas where highs may climb into the lower 50s. Temperatures may be slower to moderate across far eastern Kansas where highs may remain in the upper 30s/low 40s. Long term...(thursday through sunday) issued at 223 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 Northwest middle/upper flow is prognosticated to prevail through early in the weekend resulting in dry weather conditions and seasonably mild temperatures across the Central Plains. A cold front may back across the area late in the week but the bulk of colder air is expected to remain east of the forecast area. A shortwave trough will break down the middle/upper ridge over the weekend with increasing chances for light precipitation late in the weekend. && Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening) issued at 514 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 As upper-level energy digs southward across the region tonight...expect the pressure gradient to remain reinforced as high pressure remains anchored along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Wind speeds should decrease somewhat as we lose mixing this evening. However due to a turbulent boundary layer...have left mentions of gusts at all taf sites through the overnight and early morning hours given the steep lapse rates juxtaposed with a shallow nocturnal boundary layer. As the aforementioned upper- level energy drops south tonight...expect cloud cover to increase at kcnu and remain low end VFR. Contemplated including mentions of vcsh at kcnu during the overnight hours...however given the dry low- level air and the shallow nature of the cloud depth...have opted to leave mentions out at this time. Jmr && Fire weather... issued at 223 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 A red flag warning remains in effect this afternoon for much of south central Kansas where very high to extreme grassland fire danger continues. Maintained a Fire Weather Watch for Monday across much of the area with continued strong northwest winds. With lower temperatures and higher relative humidities on Monday...there is some concern that extreme GFDI will not develop. && Preliminary point temps/pops...
