.SHORT TERM...(TODAY THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 355 AM CDT SAT AUG 29 2015

UPPER RIDGE WILL DOMINATE CONDITIONS FOR THE WEEKEND. 850MB
TEMPERATURES WILL BE A STANDARD DEVIATION OR TWO ABOVE CLIMO BOTH
TODAY AND SUNDAY. 850MB WINDS WILL BE MAINLY SOUTH/SOUTHWEST WHICH
WILL ALSO AID IN MIXING. 850MB WINDS INCREASING TO 50KTS OVERNIGHT
SUNDAY AHEAD OF A FRONT...WHICH WILL LIMIT THE TEMPERATURE DROP. A
VERY WARM ELEVATED MIXED LAYER WILL ALSO EXIST AHEAD OF THE
FRONT...RESULTING IN A STRONG CAP. NAM PROFILES ARE WEAKLY UNSTABLE
ABOVE 12KFT ABOVE THE VERY WARM/DRY LAYER...SO THERE MAY BE SOME
ELEVATED ACCAS TYPE SHOWERS/STORMS THAT MIGRATE ACROSS THE DAKOTAS
EARLY MONDAY. PASSAGE OF FRONT WILL SUPPRESS TEMPERATURES MONDAY.


.LONG TERM...(MONDAY EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY)
ISSUED AT 355 AM CDT SAT AUG 29 2015

A FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL EXIT THE REGION MONDAY NIGHT...WITH WEAK
HIGH PRESSURE TRACKING ACROSS THE AREA ON TUESDAY. THE CWA WILL THEN
BE SITUATED BETWEEN THE HIGH TO THE EAST AND A SLOWLY APPROACHING
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TO THE WEST. THE LOW AND ASSOCIATED FRONT LOOK
TO TRACK ACROSS THE AREA SOMETIME ON FRIDAY...WITH THE ECMWF JUST A
BIT FASTER THAN THE GFS. ONLY REAL CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION IN THE
LONG TERM PERIOD WILL BE WITH THIS FRONT ON FRIDAY...BUT A FAIRLY
WARM MID LEVEL CAP MAY BE A HINDERING FACTOR. DUE TO THIS...WILL
KEEP POPS IN THE SCHC/CHC CATEGORY...SIMILAR TO SUPERBLEND...FOR NOW.

WARM AIR WILL BE IN PLACE THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD...WITH HIGHS IN THE
80S AND 90S AND OVERNIGHT LOWS MAINLY IN THE 60S.
