Short term...tonight through Tuesday

Light showers will persist for a few hours this evening as upper
level low over eastern Kansas moves off to the northeast. The
actual frontal boundary is moving through the region at this time
and will exit the state this evening. Surface high pressure along
the Gulf will dominate for Monday with moisture starting to
increase on Tuesday in advance of the next storm system.

Long term...Tuesday night through Sunday

Surface low pressure will develop along the stalled frontal
boundary, and drag a cold front across the region Wednesday or
Wednesday night. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible, with
precipitation continuing behind the front, as a closed upper low
passes behind it. Slightly cooler and drier air will follow the
system.
