.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 354 AM CDT Fri May 26 2017/

DISCUSSION...
The hot, dry and breezy weather pattern is expected to continue
today and Saturday. Afternoon highs however will be ever so
slightly cooler than the record highs set Thursday. Along with the
hot afternoon temperatures we expect relative humidity values to
drop below 10 percent today and again Saturday lending to
increased fire weather concerns.

The first significant change to the forecast comes with cold
front that pushes through Saturday night as an upper trough
currently in the northwest U.S. moves east into the plains states
to our north. Because of the very dry air in place ahead of the
front...we do not expect any precipitation. Highs Sunday should
cool down closer to the 80 degree mark across the region.

The cooler temperatures with highs closer to 80 and overnight lows
mostly in the 50s are expected to continue throughout much of
next week as moisture begins to increase across the region.
Thunderstorms chances are expected to first begin Monday night and
Tuesday over parts of the region and then gradually increase
Wednesday through Friday as a weak upper trough forms over the
desert southwest bringing winds aloft locally back to the
southwest. Surface winds remain out of the south helping increase
moisture in the region.
