.DISCUSSION...
(Issued 220 PM CDT TUE AUG 23 2016)
Temps at 200 pm were in the mid 80s with dewpoints mainly in the
60s. Local radars were showing some isolated to sct shra over nern
MS. Some of these shra (with an embedded tsra) may move into nw AL
later this aftn. But with an upper high centered along the Gulf and
a fairly dry atmosphere, dont expect this pcpn to last to long after
sunset. Thus for now will end the chc of pcpn across the cwa at 00z.
Otherwise expect partly cloudy skies tonight with mrng lows arnd 70.

Overall the wx pattern through the weekend will be dominated by a
large upper high over the region. Pcpn chances will be on the low
side and mainly for the aftn and evening hours. Temps will be a
little above normal with aftn highs in the low/mid 90s and mrng lows
in arnd 70. Aftn heat indices will generally top out arnd 100
degrees.

Next week looks a little shaky as the ECMWF brings a strong tropical
system over the TN valley by Wednesday/Thursday, just outside of this
fcst package. While the GFS has an upper ridge over much of the sern
US during this same timeframe. Stay tuned.
