Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
326 AM CDT Fri May 29 2020

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 309 AM CDT Fri May 29 2020

After some morning low clouds and fog dissipates, conditions will
make a notable change from the last few days. The area will become
increasingly under the influence of surface high pressure and
upper level NW flow. This will bring mostly clear and warmer
conditions with highs in the mid to upper 70s today, followed by
lows in the low to mid 50s.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 309 AM CDT Fri May 29 2020

Overall a very quiet forecast (especially relative to recent
weather). Highs in the 70s over the weekend will warm into the
upper 80s for Tuesday through Friday. Could see some precip toward
central MO Saturday into Saturday night if a disturbance moves
down the NW flow, but models show that dissipating as it moves in
so left precip out of the forecast for now. Otherwise, only have
some very low end chances for precip across the northern CWA
Wednesday and Thursday.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday night)
Issued at 1149 PM CDT Thu May 28 2020

While dry air will continue working into the region behind a
passing front, a low-level moisture inversion may keep skies murky
through 12z Friday morning. Such a scenario would become most
likely at the SGF and BBG terminals, where terrain is a little
more complex. We have therefore kept mention of MVFR/IFR at both
SGF and BBG until about 12z. After that time, VFR conditions will
dominate as an upper-level ridge and surface high pressure build
into the region.

Elsewhere at JLN, there is higher confidence in continued VFR
overnight and through the TAF period.

Surface winds overnight will blow from northwest to southeast
between 5 and 10 kts.
