southeast Saturday.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 358 PM CDT FRI MAY 20 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Storms continue to exit to the east as the cool front digs deeper
into the gulf this afternoon. Scattered cu field and northerly
winds has seen temps warm into the upper 70s to lower 80s today.

Slightly lower dew points will allow overnight temps to drop back
into the 60s. Expecting just a bit of patchy fog towards sunrise
as skies will be mostly clear as ridging aloft develops.

The ridging will keep clouds in check thereby allowing afternoon
temps to climb back into the mid to upper 80s over the weekend.
There is only a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm towards
Sunday afternoon. A great weekend looks to be on tap.

Chance for a afternoon thunderstorm again on Monday and Tuesday
otherwise... it looks like summer is here which will mean a more
persistent weather is setting up.
