.DISCUSSION...

UPPER TROUGH ACROSS EASTERN U.S. IS EXITING TO THE EAST WITH A
CLEAR SATELLITE ACROSS ALABAMA EXCEPT FOR SOME VERY THIN UPPER
MOISTURE ON WATER VAPOR. UPPER RIDGING WILL BUILD ACROSS THE
WESTERN TWO THIRDS OF THE U.S. SURFACE RIDGING ALSO EXTENDS FROM
MEXICO TO THE OHIO VALLEY SO A DRY FLOW WILL CONTINUE OVER THE
WEEKEND AS THE RIDGE SLOWLY SHIFTS EASTWARD TO THE EASTERN U.S.
AND DOWN TO THE GULF OF MEXICO. EXPECTING TEMPERATURES TO CREEP UP
OVER THE WEEKEND UNDER THIS INFLUENCE BACK INTO THE 80S BY SUNDAY
AND GOING UP A COUPLE OF DEGREES THROUGH TUESDAY.

LOW RAIN CHANCES FINALLY RETURN TO THE PICTURE BY TUESDAY NIGHT
INTO THE FAR NORTHWEST AND SPREADING INTO THE REST OF THE AREA FOR
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS A FRONTAL SYSTEM APPROACHES. THE
PROGRESSION WILL BE SLOW AS THE UPPER TROUGH ON WEDNESDAY IS
BROAD. BY THURSDAY THE TROUGH DIGS A TAD AS IT SHIFTS TO THE EAST
OF THE AREA WHICH SHOULD HELP TO PUSH THE FRONT THROUGH ALONG WITH
ANY LINGERING MOISTURE...DRYING THINGS OFF BY THE END OF NEXT
WEEK AND LOWERING TEMPERATURES BACK DOWN TO MORE SEASONABLE
LEVELS FOR NEXT WEEKEND.
