Short term...(tonight through Sunday night) 
issued at 1245 PM CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


A line of showers is marching across the remainder of the 
southeastern tier of counties at this writing, and should be gone 
by press time. Visible imagery shows clearing has worked its way 
into the western tier of counties at this writing, and it will 
spread eastward as well. However, cylone induced low clouds will 
follow the upper low and impact our far northeastern, and eastern 
counties, into the overnight hours. 


Dew points have already plummetted into the lower 20s for some of 
our northern counties, and this too will spread southward and 
eastward overnight. Lows will be just below freezing, but with the 
parent cyclone rotating across our eastern counties, and the high 
still to our west, the gradient will maintain some wind through much 
of the overnight hours. We will let the freeze warning remain, as 
temps will be below freezing, but with the dew point depression 
likely remaining in the 5-10f range for the bulk of the night, and 
winds staying up for most, if not the entire night, we'll back off 
on the frost wording for tonight. 


The better hard freeze/frost will be tomorrow night, as the 
surface high moves overhead, winds die early, and skies are clear. 
It will be an ideal night for a widespread hard freeze/frost Sat 
night. Then lots of sunshine Sunday will allow a diurnal warmup of 
25 degrees, but that still means 50s for highs. 


Long term...(monday through friday) 
issued at 257 PM CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


The extended forecast period begins with the a progressive trough- 
ridge-trough pattern across the U.S., With the weather forecast office pah forecast 
area shifting into the western limb of the ridge axis. Nearly all 
of the medium range guidance initially moves a full latitude 
progressive trough. Through the intermountain region before 
shearing the southern axis along the Texas/Oklahoma/Arkansas 
borders. This shearing action elongates the trough axis, 
stretching the vorticity axis into the lower Mississippi Valley. 


The main impact in the short term will be to increase and sustain 
a period of lift over Missouri and enabling a little better 
(although meager) of moisture into the western half of the weather forecast office pah 
forecast area Tuesday and Tuesday night. It is at this point in 
the forecast that elevated instability will be maximized. For that 
period, added a differential pop mention of thunderstorms (less 
than the chance of showers) to handle elevated (mainly above 850 
mb) convection. 


By Wednesday night, there is a hint that a closed low will develop 
near the California baja region, building a ridge back in the 
western U.S. And pushing the mean trough over the weather forecast office pah forecast 
area to the northeast. With any meaningful flow from the Gulf of 
Mexico blocked, precipitation chances will dwindle quickly in the 
developing northwest flow. 


Temperatures will be slightly below normal for this time of the 
year for the extended period, owing to cloud and rain chances 
early in the forecast period.

Aviation... 
issued at 620 PM CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Strong northerly low level flow will gradually weaken over the next 
24 hours. Surface wind gusts will gradually decrease to around 20 
knots by Saturday. Low clouds continue to wrap cyclonically around a 
deepening low pressure system well to our east. The back edge of 
these clouds will remain quasi-stationary between kpah and kevv much 
of tonight. The low clouds will gradually shift east of the 
kevv/kowb areas early Saturday morning. Cigs should remain 
VFR...though some MVFR cannot be ruled out tonight at kowb.
