.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Tuesday night)
Issued at 121 PM CDT SUN AUG 30 2015

Tropical like environ with dew points hovering around 70F and
temps ranging thru the 80s. Isolated to widely scattered showers
starting to become a little more numerous Lakes area wky as we
head thru the peak diurnal heating hours...but still low chance
pops type coverage. This will persist into/thru the evening, after
which we should see maybe an isolated shower but less than
mentionable pops for zfp.

Slowly surface high pressure retrogrades back across Ohio River
valley thru Tuesday. Still lingering presence of Low pressure
aloft may touch off an isolated any time shower or storm, but will
leave Mon-Tue dry as inherited until a stronger signal is noted.

Temps/Dew points wont move much. Highs will range u80s/nr 90 and
lows will range u60s/nr 70.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 334 AM CDT SUN AUG 30 2015

High pressure centered east of the PAH forecast area will keep us in
a warm and humid pattern through the rest of the work week into next
weekend.  Temperatures will remain near to a little above normal.
At this point, models show weak upper level ridging keeping remnant
moisture from Erica well southeast of our region.  Models show no
significant disturbances moving across our area, so the extended
will be kept dry.

showers/storms affect forecast area. For now, devoid of terminal
mention, but vicinity is under consideration. Will monitor.
Otherwise should see scattering clouds VFR tonight and another
brief window of late nite-early am patchy fog possible.
