.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 303 PM CDT TUE JUL 28 2015/

WILL KEEP THE HEAT ADVISORY FOR THE EASTERN RED RIVER COUNTIES
GOING THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN WILL BE IN A SLOW TRANSITION THE NEXT FEW
DAYS AS THE UPPER HIGH OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS SHIFTS WEST INTO
THE SOUTHERN ROCKIES AND DESERT SOUTHWEST AS A NORTHERN ROCKIES
UPPER LOW MOVES EAST AND TAKES UP RESIDENCE OVER THE HUDSON
BAY AND EASTERN CANADA FOR MUCH OF NEXT WEEK. THE SHIFT OF THE
UPPER HIGH TO THE WEST WILL OPEN UP NORTH TEXAS TO NORTHWESTERLY
FLOW ALOFT...AND A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY.

THE COLD FRONT SHOULD REACH THE NORTHEAST COUNTIES ON THURSDAY
AND THEN MOVE SOUTH OF THE CWA FRIDAY AFTERNOON. FORECAST
SOUNDINGS SHOW ENOUGH INSTABILITY EARLY ON FOR THUNDERSTORMS WITH THE
FRONT THURSDAY THROUGH MIDDAY FRIDAY...BUT THEN SHOW LESS
INSTABILITY FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY. THUS...CONFIDENCE
REMAINS ON THE LOW SIDE CONCERNING CONVECTIVE COVERAGE ALONG AND
BEHIND THE FRONT AND HAVE KEPT POPS AT 20-30 PERCENT. AS DRIER
AIR SPREADS INTO THE CWA FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY WOULD
EXPECT ANY CONVECTION POTENTIAL TO REMAIN CLOSE TO FRONT.

LITTLE CHANGE IN HIGH/LOW TEMPERATURES IS EXPECTED THROUGH
THURSDAY MORNING. AS DRIER AIR SPREADS OVER THE CWA BEHIND THE
COLD FRONT...DEWPOINTS WILL FALL INTO THE UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S
THIS WEEKEND AND WOULD ALLOW FOR OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE LOWER/MID
70S. HIGHS IN THE UPPER 90S TO 101 DEGREES RETURN SUNDAY THROUGH
TUESDAY...BUT SUPPRESSED DEWPOINTS WILL KEEP HEAT INDICES BELOW
ADVISORY CRITERIA. 75
