401 AM CDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.SHORT TERM (TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY)...
REGIONAL RADAR IMAGES ARE SHOWING TWO DISTINCT AREAS OF CONVECTION
THIS MORNING. ONE OF THE AREAS IS LOCATED ACROSS CENTRAL TEXAS
PUSHING TO THE SOUTHEAST ASSOCIATED WITH A SURFACE TROUGH. THIS
FEATURE IS THE REFLECTION OF A MID-LEVEL TROUGH AXIS PUSHING
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. THE SECOND FEATURE IS JUST OFFSHORE
FROM DEEP SOUTH TX. THESE TWO FEATURES WILL COMBINE LATER THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING TO PRODUCE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY ALONG AND EAST OF HIGHWAY 281. WITH PWATS
NEAR 2 INCHES ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST COUNTIES...CAN`T RULE OUT HEAVY
RAIN/LOCALIZED FLOODING. ALSO... LOCAL SOUNDINGS SUGGEST GUSTY
WINDS OF 40 TO 50 MPH WITH ANY STRONG THUNDERSTORM THAT DOES
DEVELOP. SOME LINGERING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAY AFFECT THE
HILL COUNTRY AND FAR SOUTHEAST PART OF OUR CWA DURING THE EVENING
HOURS BEFORE MUCH OF THE ACTIVITY COMES TO AN END. FOR
SATURDAY...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE ANTICIPATED
ALONG AND EAST OF INTERSTATE 35 AS THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH SLOWLY
EXITS THE LOCAL AREA AND PUSHES TO THE SOUTHEAST. HEAVY RAIN IS
POSSIBLE ONCE AGAIN ACROSS THE COASTAL PLAINS INCLUDING THE FAR
SOUTHEAST COUNTIES AS PWATS REMAIN NEAR 2 INCHES.

&&

.LONG TERM (SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY)...

SOUTHEAST COUNTIES DURING THE AFTERNOON PERIOD FROM TUESDAY
THROUGH THURSDAY OF NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATUTES WILL BE SLIGHLY ABOVE
