.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 251 PM CDT MON SEP 26 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Very little to get excited about in the near-term.  Weak flow aloft
will not draw any appreciable moisture into the area.  Warm
conditions expected Tuesday and Wednesday under a clear sky.  Models
suggest a back-door cold front arrives late Wednesday and Wednesday
night, with slightly cooler conditions Thursday.  Slow warmup
thereafter.

Forecast will be dry for the rest of the work week.  By Friday,
influence of mid-level ridge begins to wane with southwest flow aloft
resuming.  Lots of uncertainty regarding pops offered by blend
beginning Friday night.  Eastern sections would seem to be remained
cut off to Gulf moisture return, yet blended pops favor the east
Friday night through Monday.  Western sections would appear to have
the better chance for mid-level Pacific moisture and any incoming
dynamics.  Have undercut blended pops in east as we await a stronger
signal to emerge.
