.DISCUSSION...
FINALLY GETTING SOME CONVECTION GOING THIS AFTERNOON AS THE SFC
LOW /NOW CENTERED JUST W OF TYLER/ AND ITS ASSOCIATED FRONT PUSH
SEWD. SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS ALONG THE SRN FLANK OF THE SFC LOW
HAS ALLOWED FOR INCREASED INSTABILITY...AND THEREFORE LIGHTNING
ACTIVITY HAS MARKEDLY INCREASED. THIS CONVECTION WILL CONTINUE TO
SLOWLY MIGRATE EWD TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY BEFORE THE FRONT BECOMES
STALLED ACROSS CENTRAL LA. BELOW-NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND...BUT BEGIN AN OVERALL WARMING
TREND.

UPPER TROF TO REMAIN IN PLACE OVER THE ERN U.S. THROUGH THE
WEEKEND...EVEN AS ANOTHER SHORTWAVE MOVES THROUGH SEWD IN THE
FLOW. THIS WILL KEEP RAIN CHANCES IN OVER OUR SERN AREAS THROUGH
THE WEEKEND...BEFORE BECOMING MORE DIURNALLY FORCED AS WE MOVE
THROUGH THE WORK WEEK. WE SHOULD ALSO SEE A RETURN TO NEAR NORMAL
TEMPS WITH THE ABSENCE OF ANY MORE COLD FRONTS AND ASSOCIATED
CLOUD COVER/CONVECTION. /12/
