1217 PM CDT SAT AUG 27 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 226 AM CDT Sat Aug 27 2016

High moisture content in the atmosphere will continue today. PW
values range from 1.5 to 1.8 inches which is very moist. Upper air
soundings indicate skinny CAPE and instability but a lot of
moisture. There is still stalled out weak frontal boundary just
north of our area which is currently parallel to the mid level

We will see the chance continue for isolated to widely scattered
showers and storms to develop again mainly during the midday
through the afternoon today. Any thunderstorm will be capable of
producing localized heavy downpours along with lightning and
gusty winds. Widespread severe weather is not expected but a
strong storm can`t be ruled out. High temperatures will once again
be in the middle to maybe upper 80s.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 226 AM CDT Sat Aug 27 2016

Southerly moist flow at the surface will continue into early next
week with off and on daily isolated to widely scattered showers
and thunderstorms possible. There will be occasional mid level
disturbances moving across the area. There appears to be a better
chance of scattered convection Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons
with the frontal boundary stalled out right across the area from
west to east. High temperatures will be seasonably average with
highs in the middle to upper 80s and overnight lows in the upper
60s to around 70.

to overcast. Showers will be possible in the vicinities of area
