616 AM CDT Fri Sep 22 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 326 AM CDT Fri Sep 22 2017

An upper level ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our
regional weather today with another very warm afternoon in store.
High temperatures will be back in the lower 90s again today with
southerly breezes 10 to 15 mph. The Autumnal Equinox officially
occurs at 3:02 pm CDT this afternoon. The weather will be dry and
warm for Friday night football games this evening.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 326 AM CDT Fri Sep 22 2017

The upper level ridge continues to hold on to our weather pattern
on Saturday with another very warm day with highs in the upper
80s to near 90 degrees. We start to see the high pressure ridge
begin to lose influence on our weather pattern Sunday and Monday
with a few isolated showers or storms around and highs slightly
down into the middle 80s.

An upper level trough and slow moving cold front begin to move
into our region Tuesday and Wednesday with a better chance for
scattered showers and storms across the area. We do not expect any
severe weather at this time. Rain chances may continue into early
Thursday before the system moves south out of our area. Cooler
weather will follow behind the cold front by the middle and end of
next week.
