National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO
600 PM CST Mon Dec 9 2019

issued at 331 PM CST Monday Dec 9 2019

Much quieter weather is anticipated for the remainder of the work
week. The current ushering of colder temperatures combined with
the gusty winds will continue to yield wind chills in the teens
this evening into early Tuesday. Continued cold air advection will
result in below normal temperatures tonight into Tuesday, with
morning lows in the teens to lower 20s and highs struggling to
reach the upper 20s to near 40 under mostly sunny skies.
Temperatures will gradually moderate back to near normal readings
Wednesday through Friday as surface high pressure shifts off to
the east and southerly winds return. A more active weather pattern
returns this weekend as a longwave trough amplifies across the
High Plains. There are emerging signals for our next chance for
measurable precipitation this weekend, including the possibility
for some wintry weather.


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday evening)
issued at 554 PM CST Monday Dec 9 2019

Quite a few wind shifts with several surface features moving through
the area over the next 24 hours. None really should affect flight
safety into the terminals.
