.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 213 PM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017

Canadian high pressure was building southward into the region this
afternoon. This high will settle over central Missouri tonight and
then slowly push eastward Thursday. Expect clear skies and light
winds through the period with very pleasant conditions. Short term

front drops southward towards the region. Small rain chances then

Mississippi River Valley region. Current medium range models show

transitioning into the Ohio Valley and perhaps as far west as
eastern Missouri.
