SHORT RANGE FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
323 AM EDT TUE JUL 7 2015

VALID 12Z TUE JUL 7 2015 - 12Z THU JUL 9 2015

***STORMY WEATHER FROM THE SOUTHERN PLAINS TO THE GREAT LAKES***

***HEAVY RAIN EVENT FOR PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS***

***HOT CONDITIONS FOR MUCH OF THE WESTERN U.S.***

THE WEATHER PATTERN OVER THE NATION THROUGH WEDNESDAY WILL FEATURE
A COLD FRONT TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE MIDWEST AND GREAT
LAKES, AND A WEAKENING WARM FRONT OVER THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION.
PLEASANT WEATHER WILL SETTLE IN BEHIND THIS BOUNDARY AND HUMIDITY
LEVELS WILL BE MORE COMFORTABLE.

THIS COLD FRONT WILL LIKELY HAVE THE GREATEST IMPACTS OVER PARTS
OF OKLAHOMA AND NORTHERN TEXAS AS THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THIS
FRONT STALLS OVER THAT REGION.  A HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT IS FORECAST
TO CONTINUE INTO TUESDAY AS DEEP MOISTURE FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO
GETS LIFTED UPWARD BY THE FRONT.  SEVERAL INCHES OF RAINFALL IS A
GOOD POSSIBILITY FOR SOME AREAS AND FLASH FLOOD WATCHES ARE IN
EFFECT FROM THE TEXAS PANHANDLE TO MISSOURI.

FOR THE WESTERN U.S., IT WILL BE VERY WARM TO HOT FOR MANY AREAS
FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST TO THE DESERT SOUTHWEST, ALTHOUGH NOT
AS HOT AS THE PAST WEEK.  THIS IS WHERE AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL
PREVAIL.  MONSOONAL MOISTURE IN PLACE OVER THE INTERIOR WEST WILL
ALLOW FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS EACH
AFTERNOON.
