.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION...
.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT
SHORT WAVE TROUGH CLOUD COVER AND SCATTERED LIGHT SHOWERS HAVE
LESSENED THE BUILDUP OF INSTABILITY ACROSS THE REGION LATE THIS
AFTERNOON. THE SPC ANALYSIS SHOWED ONLY 500 TO 1500 J/KG OF MIXED
LAYER CAPE FROM NORTH TO SOUTH ACROSS THE CWA LATE THIS AFTERNOON.
ALTHOUGH...THE DEEP LAYER SHEAR WAS IMPRESSIVE UP TO OVER 50
KNOTS. EXPECT SOME MORE BUILDUP OF INSTABILITY INTO THE EVENING
ACROSS THE CWA AS CLOUDS AND LIGHT SHOWERS MOVE EAST. THE GFS AND
HI-RES MODELS STILL SHOWING NUMEROUS SHOWERS/STORMS DEVELOPING
MAINLY ACROSS THE EASTERN CWA THIS EVENING. CENTRAL SD ALSO SEEING
MORE SUNSHINE AND WARMING LATE THIS AFTERNOON. WITH AN INCREASING
85H LLJ ACROSS MAINLY THE EAST THIS EVENING...EXPECT A GOOD CHANCE
OF SHOWERS/STORMS ACROSS THIS REGION. INCREASED POPS THIS EVENING.
THE MODELS THEN SHOW A WEAK BOUNDARY DROPPING SLOWLY SOUTHEAST
TONIGHT AND FRIDAY BRINGING WINDS AROUND TO THE EAST AND NORTHEAST
ACROSS MOST OF THE CWA. AFTER THE CONVECTION TONIGHT...EXPECT MOST
OF FRIDAY TO NOW BE DRY ACROSS THE CWA. THE MODELS THEN SHOW
ANOTHER SHORT WAVE TROUGH FROM THE NORTHWEST DROPPING ACROSS THE
CWA FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY ALONG WITH A GOOD JET STREAK
DEVELOPING TO OUR NORTH AND NORTHEAST. THIS WILL PUT US IN THE
FAVORABLE RR QUADRANT. THUS...HAVE IN CHANCES OF MAINLY ELEVATED
SHOWERS/STORMS FOR FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY WITH EVERYTHING
MOVING OFF TO THE SOUTHEAST SATURDAY NIGHT. HIGHS WILL BE IN THE
80S ON FRIDAY AND A FEW DEGREES COOLER ON SATURDAY.


.LONG TERM...SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

SUNDAY SHOULD PROVE TO BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE EXTENDED FORECAST
PERIOD...WITH ANOMALOUSLY COOL AIR ADVECTING DOWN INTO THE CWA
MONDAY AND STICKING AROUND THROUGH PROBABLY WEDNESDAY...AT LEAST.
THIS SHOULD SPELL SOME MUCH BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT
THE PERIOD AND DRY CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD. COLD AIR
INSTABILITY CU/STRATO-CU WILL LIKELY ONLY ADD INSULT TO INJURY ON
MONDAY CLOUDING THINGS UP AND KEEPING JULY INSOLATION FROM TAKING
THE EDGE OFF THE COLDNESS OF THE AIR ON MONDAY.


&&

.CLIMATOLOGICALLY...
AN ANOMALOUSLY COLD LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO UPPER
MIDWEST EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE COMBINATION OF A COOL CANADIAN
AIRMASS ALONG WITH INCREASING CLOUDS AND A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS
COULD RESULT IN A FEW RECORD LOW HIGH TEMPERATURES ON MONDAY.
BELOW IS A LIST OF LOCATIONS THAT COULD SEE NEAR RECORD COLD
READINGS ON MONDAY:

...LOCATION......FORECAST....RECORD LOW HIGH TEMP...
WHEATON MN          64          72 IN 1949
SISSETON            65          70 IN 1993

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS FOR THE KABR...KATY...KPIR AND KMBG TERMINALS

THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO BE A THREAT THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS
AS A LOW LEVEL JET STRENGTHENS. THE BEST CHANCES FOR THUNDER
REMAIN FROM SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA THROUGH NORTHEAST SOUTH
DAKOTA...MAINLY FORECAST TO POSSIBLY IMPACT THE KATY TAF SITE.
BEYOND BRIEF PERIODS OF REDUCED CIGS/VSBYS ASSOCIATED WITH
STRONGER STORMS...MVFR/IRF CIGS AND VSBYS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE AT THE
KATY TAF SITE. THE WARM MOIST AIRMASS IN PLACE WILL LIKELY RESULT IN
LOWER CLOUDS AND THE POTENTIAL FOR PATCHY FOG DEVELOPMENT THROUGH
THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. FRIDAY...A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL SLIDE
FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA.
WINDS WILL SWITCH AROUND TO THE EAST NORTHEAST BEHIND THE FRONT.
ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE
BOUNDARY AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH UPPER LEVEL ENERGY FRIDAY NIGHT.
