LOW LEVEL EASTERLY FLOW IS DOMINATING LATE THIS MORNING WITH
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OFF TO OUR NORTHEAST. THIS
MORNING`S KBMX 12Z SOUNDING PRESENTS A GOOD AMOUNT OF DRY AND
WARMER AIR ALOFT...ESPECIALLY JUST ABOVE 700MB. THAT SHOULD KEEP US
DRY THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY WITH VERY LOW CHANCES OF ANY
CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY. ONLY MINOR TWEAKS WERE PERFORMED TO THE SHORT
TERM FORECAST IN TERMS OF CLOUD COVER AND HOURLY TEMPERATURES...BUT
EVERYTHING ELSE IS CURRENTLY ON TRACK FOR TODAY.
