.DISCUSSION...
Upper trough moving down across the Central Plains states today as a
strong ridge remains over the West Coast.  The ridge will build east
the next few days and dominate the wx pattern resulting in mild and
warming wx for the area.  It will also result in little to no chance
of precipitation for the coming week.

A weak front will move through today with the wind swinging around
to the north but actually expect a warm day with highs in the 60s as
850 temps should be around 9C/49F.  The colder air looks to lag the
wind shift as it will be cooler on Monday with highs in the 50s.  By
Tuesday the wind comes around to the W/SW with temps rebounding back
into the 60s.  Normal highs for this time of year in the central CWA
are 60.  As the ridge moves overhead readings will climb into the
70s and remain warm through the end of the week.
