.DISCUSSION...
A few very light shwrs have developed across our extreme ern areas
this aftn, where moisture is slightly higher due to the presence
of a weak upper low along the central Gulf Coast.

Slightly better chances for shwrs/tstms, at least in terms of
coverage, will come into play Wednesday, as a cold front begins to
move through our region. All of this in spite of the upper ridge,
which will remain anchored across S TX even as a disturbance rides
over the top and spills in to the ern CONUS through the end of the
work week. Cooler temps and even drier dew points will accompany
the post-frontal airmass Thursday through Sunday, although the
warm-up as the airmass begins to modify late in the weekend may
end up being quicker than the blended guidance indicates.

Unfortunately the upper ridge will build back in over some portion
of the srn CONUS /still considerable discrepancies in model
solutions/, keeping our fcst dry for the extended and likely
beyond. /12/
