DISCUSSION...
YESTERDAYS TEMPS CLIMBED INTO THE LOW TO MID 90S WITH A FEW SITES
REPORTING UPPER 90S UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES. THIS LOOKS TO BE A
REPEAT OF TODAY WITH THE HEAT INDEX RANGING FROM 100 TO 107 BY
THIS AFTERNOON. THE TEMPS WILL ONLY START TO COOL WITH THE LOSS OF
DAYTIME HEATING LATE THIS AFTERNOON. OVERNIGHT LOWS TOMORROW WILL
DROP SLOWLY AS DEW POINTS ARE HOLDING IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S WITH
CLEAR SKIES.

THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE ANCHORED OVER THE TOP OF US OVER THE LAST
SEVERAL DAYS LOOKS TO DRIFT OFF TO THE NORTHWEST STARTING MONDAY
INTO TUESDAY. WHAT THIS WILL MEAN IS MORE CLOUDS FOR MONDAY... A
CHANCE FOR A SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM. BEST CHANCES FOR STORMS WILL
BE OVER SW LA ON MONDAY WITH RAIN CHANCES INCREASING OVER SE TX BY
TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL HELP TO HOLD AFTERNOON TEMPS
BACK A COUPLE OF DEGREES. THE NEXT COOL FRONT LOOKS TO MOVE DOWN
INTO THE REGION EARLY SATURDAY BUT IS EXPECTED TO STALL JUST TO
OUR NORTH.

TD4 HAS FORMED BUT LOOKS TO MOVE UP THE EAST COAST BUT IS NOT
EXPECTED TO MOVE TOWARDS THE US MAINLAND.
