Although we are heading into the dog days of summer...when the area
would typically be in the grips of hot summer temperatures...this
forecast is void of that. Expect below normal temperatures through
the duration of his forecast with mainly just diurnal scattered
showers and thunderstorms Wednesday through Saturday.

Much more pleasant conditions than in the past few days are
occurring across the CWA this afternoon. Strong northwest winds are
bringing in slightly below average temperatures this afternoon with
much less humid conditions as dewpoints have fallen into the upper
50s. Cool surface high pressure, currently residing in the southern
Canadian Plains, will sink southward through the Plains tonight
impinging on the local area by tomorrow morning and signaling the
onset of cooler conditions.

Several areas of cool surface high pressure coupled with continued
northwest flow aloft through the next week will keep temperatures
across the area 5 to 10 degrees below normal. Highs will be in the
upper 70s to lower 80s through the next 7 days. Precipitation
chances will mainly reside in the extended period
(Wednesday-Saturday) as models advertise several weak impulses
moving through the area on northwest flow. Any precipitation that
does fall will be diurnally driven and light in nature as high
pressure at the surface may keep conditions dry.
