AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
306 AM CDT MON AUG 31 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A POSITIVELY-TILTED TROUGH REMAINS DRAPED ACROSS THE EASTERN TWO-
THIRDS OF THE CONUS WITH AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE PARKED OVER THE
DESERT SOUTHWEST. MULTIPLE SHORTWAVES ARE EMBEDDED WITHIN THIS
BROAD SYNOPTIC PATTERN...BUT DESPITE THE TWO DISTURBANCES NEAR
US...ONE TO THE SOUTHWEST AND ONE TO THE NORTHEAST...DO NOT EXPECT
MUCH IN THE WAY OF PRECIPITATION CHANCES BECAUSE THE SUPPORT IS
NOT STRONG ENOUGH OVER US. FURTHERMORE...DO NOT EXPECT MUCH IN THE
WAY OF RAIN OR DRASTIC TEMPERATURE CHANGES FOR NORTH TEXAS DURING
THE UPCOMING WEEK BASED ON OUR POSITION RELATIVE TO THESE FEATURES
AND THEIR PROGGED MOVEMENT.

THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON TUESDAY
FOR OUR SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES BUT AM NOT EXPECTING WIDESPREAD
COVERAGE OR INTENSITY...AS MUCH OF THE CONVECTION WILL LIKELY
REMAIN JUST SOUTH AND EAST OF OUR FORECAST AREA. OTHER THAN THIS
TIME FRAME...AM EXPECTING A DRY FORECAST THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.

WITH SOUTHERLY FLOW PERSISTING AND THE MAIN WEATHER-MAKERS BEING
TOO FAR AWAY FROM NORTH TEXAS TO PROVIDE ANY RELIEF FROM THE
HEAT...EXPECT AFTERNOON HIGHS TO CLIMB INTO THE 90S AND OVERNIGHT
LOWS TO DIP INTO THE 70S...WHICH IS NEAR NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF
YEAR. THE EXTENDED FORECAST DOES LOOK PROMISING REGARDING THE
EVENTUAL RETURN OF COOLER TEMPERATURES AND ADDITIONAL
RAINFALL...BUT THIS WILL LIKELY NOT BE UNTIL AFTER LABOR DAY.

.AVIATION...
/ISSUED 1138 PM CDT SUN AUG 30 2015/
VFR WILL PREVAIL WITH JUST SOME AFTERNOON CUMULUS AND MID-HIGH
CLOUDS. THERE IS A SMALL THREAT OF CONVECTION MONDAY AFTERNOON BUT
THIS RISK IS TOO LOW TO MENTION AT THIS TIME. GENERALLY LIGHT
SOUTH WINDS WILL CONTINUE.
