.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 353 PM CDT Fri Aug 18 2017/

SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Tomorrow)

Look for dry conditions for the next 24 hours, with temperatures
close to July normals. High pressure will continue to build over
the region, and winds will be generally from a south direction at
10 mph or less. Lows tonight, mainly in the lower to mid 70s, look
likely. Plus, highs tomorrow will likely range from the mid to
upper 90s.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday night through Friday)

..Possible Rain Mid To Late Week...

Models this cycle continue to present possible rain chances mid
to late next week. However, the ECMWF is more aggressive than the
GFS with this potential scenario. It appears the ECMWF brings a
weak front or surface boundary into our counties, during that
time frame. Plus, models shift the upper pattern to position high
pressure centers in such a way (west and east of our area) to
create a shear zone aloft over Texas, during that time frame. So,
continuing slight chance to chance PoPs for the Tuesday night
through Friday periods looks reasonable. Otherwise, expect
temperatures into mid week at or just above normals; then,
temperatures should cool for the mid to late week periods, as
cloud cover increases.
