DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...
South winds will persist, moderately gusty during the daytime. VFR
conditions are expected.

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 301 PM CDT THU JUL 21 2016/

DISCUSSION...
With high dewpoints continuing to hold on, we will likely have at
least one more day of heat index values at or above 105, perhaps
two. With this, we will extend the heat advisory through Friday
afternoon. It will be possible that the advisory will be needed
through Saturday, but we will wait to see if we can start mixing
out these dewpoints. By Sunday, expected high temperatures may
start lowering slightly as the ridge weakens a bit and slides west
toward the southwestern United States. This will also allow some
precipitation chances to return to the forecast late this weekend
into next week.
