concerning taf sites ktul/krvs/kbvo/kmlc/kxna/kfyv/kfsm.
For the 6z tafs... an area of thunderstorms has developed in south
central Kansas and is forecast to expand and move eastward across
extreme northern Oklahoma overnight. This activity will possibly
affect kbvo... and has a slight chance of reaching as far as
northwest Arkansas sites early Wednesday. Otherwise... VFR
conditions will prevail at all sites throughout the 24 hour
forecast period.


Previous discussion... /issued 931 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014/


isolated showers/thunderstorms have recently
developed across southern Kansas...just west of the warm air advection regime along the nose of
a strengthening low-level jet. While most of
the overnight convection is expected to remain
across Kansas...a few storms will be possible into
parts of NE OK and perhaps northwest Arkansas. Updated
products to tweak near term temperatures/probability of precipitation otherwise
forecast is in reasonable shape.
