.DISCUSSION...

Patchy morning fog will again start our day. Upper high this
afternoon will be centered over srn IL by afternoon. This feature is
not very strong but ridging does extend ne across the Great Lakes
region. Northerly ul flow will again be in place. This will combine
with a favorable cape to cap ratio by afternoon. Thus, shower and
tstm chances to the tune of 20-30 percent will again be in play.
No pops for Friday as subsidence takes over by 00z.

Near term temps still looking quite warm with high temps near 90 and
lows upper 60s. This is a good 7 to 10 degrees above normal.

In the ext fcst, hurricane Maria will turn north and be a non factor
for the US coastline. A weak easterly wave will slide westward
across the deep south by Sunday but much of the moisture to work
with will be stolen by Maria. Upper ridging will then rebuild over
the south around mid week.

Our extended temps continue to look quite summer-like. West of the
Plateau, highs will be in the upper 80s with lows generally in the
upper 60s.
