It's a mild start to our Wednesday with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s. We have some low stratus clouds and dense fog though. Much of the Tri-State is under a Dense Fog Advisory until 10am/11am. Visibilities could be a quarter mile or less, which we have already seen this morning. The fog will start to dissipate mainly after 10am/11am. As we go through the morning and afternoon hours the clouds will clear out of the Tri-States allowing us to see some nice sunshine. Surface ridge of high pressure will move east today which will allow us to have some nice southerly winds. Highs will be warmer, in the low 60s. A weak cold front will slide through the area this evening and tonight. I'm not expecting any rain out of the this front though. Just some cloudy conditions as we go through the night. Lows will be in the upper 40s. The cloudy conditions will continue into tomorrow with highs in the mid 60s. After about 1pm/2pm tomorrow some scattered showers may move through the Tri-States. Tomorrow night a mesoscale convective system, MCS, (a large thunderstorms complex) will slide from east to west along the stationary boundary in southeastern Kansas. As the MCS moves into our neck of the woods will will gradually weaken during the day on Friday.
