KEY MESSAGE: CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DECREASED OVER THE NEXT  
24 HOURS. COOLER AND DRY WEATHER ARE STILL PROJECTED FOR EARLY NEXT  
WEEK.  
 
AS OF EARLY THIS MORNING, A CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
OVER SOUTHEAST KANSAS WERE FORMING WITHIN A ZONE OF ISENTROPIC  
ASCENT. MODELS HAVE DONE A FAIR JOB WITH THIS ACTIVITY, AND THE  
OVERWHELMING CONSENSUS KEEPS THE CONVECTION JUST SOUTHWEST OF THE  
FORECAST AREA THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE MORNING HOURS. OVERALL,  
THE AREA LOOKS TO STAY MOSTLY DRY THROUGH THE DAY, WITH  
SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES IN THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 80S. BY TONIGHT, A  
SIMILAR SETUP OF ISENTROPIC ASCENT LOOKS TO TRANSPIRE SLIGHTLY  
SOUTH AND EAST OF TONIGHT'S ONGOING ACTIVITY, FURTHER ENHANCED BY  
A WEAK UPPER WAVE. INDICATIONS APPEAR THAT MOST OF THIS SHOULD  
REMAIN SOUTH, MAINLY OVER THE OZARKS IN SOUTHWESTERN MISSOURI. A  
COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH LATE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY,  
BRINGING THE NEXT BEST CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION. AT THIS TIME,  
NEITHER SEVERE WEATHER OR FLOODING APPEAR TO BE A CONCERN. A  
COOLER AND DRIER AIRMASS WILL ADVECTS INTO THE REGION BEGINNING  
SUNDAY INTO EARLY/MIDDLE NEXT WEEK, WITH AN EARLY TASTE OF FALL-  
LIKE WEATHER ANTICIPATED.
