July 22 - The current placement of the surface front is not clear, as a series of outflow boundaries have modified the low- level wind
field. Better defined is the 850- mb front, which currently extends from Ft Scott to Columbia. Drizzle or light rain may linger into early afternoon behind the surface front as rich moisture in the lowest 5,000 ft gets squeezed out by the
approaching 850- mb front.
