At mid afternoon, a cold front was located to the southeast of the
mid state. A second cold front will move through this evening. Caa
will bring with it falling temps overnight. Sfc high will reach MO
by 12z. Under clear skies, low temps are expected to fall to near
freezing Plateau, ranging to the upper 30s southwest. Winds will
subside, particularly aft 09z. Will go ahead and include a freeze
warning for our northern and central Plateau, and a frost advisory
across the remainder of the north. Look for sunny and cool weather
for your Sunday.
Sunday night, sfc low to reach the western Carolinas by 12z. Western
ridge extension points our way with wind speeds notably lighter area
wide. Temps should be a degree or so cooler but will refrain from
any further npw products so as to avoid confusion. In all likelihood,
additional advisories/warnings will come out again for tomorrow
night. Decided against a freeze watch because of a lack of
confidence in terms of a killing freeze, we don't see it.
Moving on, southerly return flow on Monday will couple with rising
heights and end the frost/freeze headaches, for a while anyway.
Highs on Monday will be back in the 60s with lows Monday night upper
30s to lower 40s.
In the ext fcst, a shallow and dry fropa to occur on Tuesday.
Following this, a developing upper ridge over the plains will
deamplify with a trend toward a zonal flow into mid week. Temps will
warm to near 70 by the end of the week. Over the weekend, upper
level energy will dive southward through the eastern U.S. and bring
a chance of rain showers once again.
