.LONG TERM:  (FRIDAY THROUGH NEXT THURSDAY)
ISSUED AT 354 PM CDT THU JUL 30 2015

THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN AMPLIFIES OVER THE CONUS THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK AS THE HUDSON BAY LOW DEEPENS AND A
SHARP RIDGE BUILDS OVER THE ROCKIES.  THIS WILL RESULT IN NORTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT OVER THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.  LOW LEVEL FLOW TURNS BACK
TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OVER THE GREAT PLAINS ON FRIDAY AND INTO
NORTHWEST MISSOURI FRIDAY NIGHT.  THIS LOW LEVEL SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL
SPREAD EASTWARD OVER THE WEEKEND AND COMBINED WITH A COUPLE OF FAST-
MOVING SHORTWAVES WILL PRODUCE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS...THE FIRST
POTENTIALLY FRIDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY SATURDAY MORNING AND THE SECOND
LATE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY SUNDAY MORNING.  TEMPERATURES SHOULD
BE SEASONABLY WARM...AND DEWPOINT TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY CLIMB
BACK INTO THE LOW 70S WHICH WILL MAKE IT FEEL MORE LIKE THE DOG DAYS
OF SUMMER.  GFS AND ECMWF DIFFER SLIGHTLY OUT IN THE MEDIUM RANGE
WITH THE GFS CONTINUING TO AMPLIFY THE PATTERN AND PUSHING A COLD
FRONT THROUGH MISSOURI DOWN INTO ARKANSAS AND OKLAHOMA BY WEDNESDAY
EVENING WHILE THE ECMWF IS NOT NEARLY AS STRONG.  REGARDLESS THERE
SHOULD BE AN INCREASED CHANCE FOR PRECIPIATION BY MID WEEK AND
POTENTIALLY LOWER TEMPERATURES.
