AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED AVIATION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ST LOUIS MO
636 AM CDT Thu Aug 28 2014

.SHORT TERM:  (Through Late This Afternoon)
Issued at 334 AM CDT Thu Aug 28 2014

Nocturnal convection has remained well northwest of forecast area 
with just a few very small showers popping up over northeast 
Missouri and west central Illinois early this morning. For today, 
will see a lot of sunshine initially but diurnal cu to pop by mid
to late morning most locations. So depending on how much cloud
cover forms and timing of when storms will develop will affect how
warm temperatures get. For now have highs in the mid 80s far north
to the upper 80s to low 90s elsewhere. Will still see dewpts in
the low to mid 70s so another very humid day. Heat indices could
get close to 100 in the metro area this afternoon but not warrant
any headlines. Just like yesterday, expect widely scattered
thunderstorms to develop along weak boundary that remains draped
across region.

Byrd

.LONG TERM:  (Tonight through Wednesday)
Issued at 334 AM CDT Thu Aug 28 2014

Tonight activity to slowly dissipate then refocus back to the
northwest along main frontal boundary. Lows tonight will be in the
low 70s. On Friday, upper level shortwave/trof to begin to lift
northeast out of central plains and into forecast area.
Precipitation chances to be on the increase with the best chances
Friday night and Saturday. Kept likely pops going through this
period. Highs on Friday will be a bit lower, in the upper 80s and
lows Friday night will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. As system
slides through on Saturday, the combination of clouds and storms
will keep highs in the low 80s far north to the upper 80s south.

Frontal boundary to stall out just southeast of forecast area 
Saturday night through Sunday, could see a bit of a break in 
activity with just isolated/scattered storms through this period. 
Then an even stronger trof will slide east through region Sunday 
night and Monday with increasing chances of storms once again. This 
boundary to stall out just south of us as well, so kept mention of 
storms possible through the rest of the forecast period. Highs will 
be in the 80s through the middle of next week.
