.SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
QUIET WEATHER CONTINUES THROUGH THE SHORT TERM. A WEAK UPPER RIDGE

PUSHES ACROSS THE CWA ON FRIDAY...BRINGING WITH IT LITTLE IMPACT.
MAIN CHANGE WILL BE AN INCREASE IN CLOUD COVERAGE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY
MORNING...BUT WILL BE HIGH CLOUDS. AFTER THAT...CLOUDS SHOULD
DIMINISH INTO FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. AS WE TRANSITION FROM THE
UPPER RIDGE TO THE UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE...TEMPS TONIGHT WILL BE A
FEW DEGREES WARMER. AS A RESULT...NO FROST IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE
CWA TONIGHT. THIS WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY WITH HIGH
TEMPS ABOUT THREE TO FIVE DEGREES WARMER THAN TODAY BUT STILL

NO CHANGES TO PREVIOUS FORECAST. SEE PREVIOUS DISCUSSION BELOW...

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
/ISSUED 318 AM EDT THU OCT 23 2014/
A COUPLE OF COLD FRONTS WILL IMPACT THE CWFA THROUGH THE EXTENDED
FORECAST. THE NEXT BEST CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION WILL BE DURING THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.

THE ONLY REAL CHANGE IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST WAS TO ADD SLIGHT
CHANCE/CHANCE POPS FOR WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT AS A FRONTAL
BOUNDARY MOVES THROUGH THE REGION. EXTENDED MODELS HAVE COME INTO A
LITTLE BETTER AGREEMENT. QPF IS PROGGED TO BE VERY LIGHT AND LESS
THAN A TENTH OF AN INCH AT THIS TIME. MODELS ARE ALSO PROGGING SOME
LOW LEVEL INSTABILITY ALONG THE FRONT...BUT WILL LEAVE OUT MENTION
OF THUNDER AT THIS TIME. WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR TRENDS.

OTHERWISE...NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES. ABOVE NORMAL DAYTIME TEMPS ARE
EXPECTED FOR THE END OF THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK AHEAD OF
THE MID-WEEK FRONTAL BOUNDARY.
