DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 335 PM CST WED NOV 26 2014/

SHORTWAVE ASSOCIATED WITH UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVING THROUGH THE
MID-SOUTH AND BRINGING A PERIOD OF RAIN SHOWERS WITH IT. SHOWERS
ARE WELL EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND JUST ABOUT TO THE
TENNESSEE RIVER. SO HAVE REMOVED POPS AND CHANCE OF RAIN FOR ALL
OF THIS EVENING.

THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL BE NORTHWEST
FLOW WITH A SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM BUILDING INTO THE AREA.
THIS WILL BE THE PATTERN THROUGH MOST OF THE WEEKEND.
HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN COOL THROUGH SATURDAY.

A FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL PUSH TOWARD THE REGION ON SUNDAY...THIS
ALONG WITH SOUTHERLY SURFACE WINDS WILL ALLOW THE TEMPERATURES TO
RISE INTO THE 60S. ON SUNDAY AREAS TO THE NORTH MAY SEE SOME
RAIN. WHILE THE ENTIRE MID-SOUTH MAY SEE RAIN BEGINNING ON SUNDAY
EVENING.

NEXT WEEK STARTS OUT WET. HOWEVER...THE MODELS ARE NOT IN
AGREEMENT ON TIMING OF THE PASSAGE OF THE FRONTAL SYSTEM EARLY
NEXT WEEK. ALSO THE MODELS ARE HINTING AT A LINGERING FRONTAL
SYSTEM SO A CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION IS IN THE FORECAST FOR MUCH OF
THE OF NEXT WEEK. TLSJR
