DISCUSSION...

AN UPPER RIDGE WILL REMAIN OVER THE MIDSOUTH THROUGH THURSDAY.
HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE LOWER TO MID 90S BUT WILL NOT
FEEL AS BAD THANKS TO LOWER DEWPOINTS THAT HAVE FILTERED INTO THE
AREA. LOWS WILL BE COOLER THAN THEY HAVE BEEN WITH READINGS IN THE
UPPER 60S TO MID 70S. CAN/T RULE OUT AN ISOLATED DIURNAL
THUNDERSTORM OCCURRING THIS AFTERNOON OR THURSDAY AFTERNOON BUT
NOT ENOUGH TO CARRY POPS IN THE FORECAST.

BY FRIDAY...THE UPPER RIDGE WILL SHIFT SOUTHEAST ALLOWING FOR AN
UPPER TROF TO MOVE INTO THE AREA OVER THE WEEKEND. THE UPPER TROF
WILL BRING DECENT CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ESPECIALLY
ON SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT. CLOUD COVER AND CONVECTION WILL
KEEP HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S OVER THE WEEKEND.

THE UPPER TROF WILL SHIFT EAST BY MONDAY ALLOWING FOR THE UPPER
RIDGE TO RETURN TO THE AREA. HIGHS WILL JUMP BACK INTO THE LOWER
TO MID 90S. CHANCES FOR DIURNAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
OCCUR MONDAY AND TUESDAY AFTERNOONS.
