.DISCUSSION...
Another hot day on tap today with the Panhandles reaching into the
mid and upper 90s to low 100s. Fair weather cumulus have filled in
across the Panhandles. With a high pressure centered overhead,
there should be enough subsidence in place to keep the cu from
developing further. This high pressure should remain in place
through the end of the week. By the weekend, chances for precip
return to the area as the high pressure moves eastward, allowing
shortwaves to penetrate the region. As lee side troughing
develops, more chances for showers and thunderstorms come for
Sunday into Monday. While models have some disagreements in the
far extended period, it looks like the Panhandles could see
chances for precip linger through next week if northwest flow
returns.
