.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 345 AM CDT THU JUL 30 2015/

DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED SHOWERS/STORMS ARE BEGINNING TO DEVELOP SOUTHWEST FROM A
CLUSTER OF STORMS IN S KS ACROSS THE PANHANDLES TOWARDS A LARGER
AREA OF STORMS IN EASTERN NM EARLY THIS MORNING. THIS ACTIVITY COULD
EVENTUALLY MOVE/DEVELOP INTO PORTIONS OF THE FA THIS MORNING.
ADDITIONAL ISOLATED TO SCATTERED STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THIS
AFTERNOON WITH THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY AND ANY LINGERING OUTFLOW
BOUNDARIES ACROSS THE FA BEING FOCI. THE BEST CHANCE MAY ACTUALLY BE
IN CENTRAL AND/OR SOUTHERN SECTIONS OF THE FA WHERE LESS CLOUD COVER
IS EXPECTED SO MORE SFC HEATING WOULD LIKELY OCCUR.

MODELS STILL SHOW THE CENTER OF THE UPPER HIGH SLOWLY MOVING WEST
WITH NW FLOW POSSIBLY DEVELOPING OVER PORTIONS OF THE FA AND MID-
LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVING THROUGH THE FLOW. SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF THE FA AT LEAST
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND POSSIBLY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE GFS SHOWS
THE UPPER HIGH TRYING TO BUILD BACK TO THE EAST INTO THE REGION THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK ALTHOUGH THE HIGH PRESSURE CENTER REMAINS TO THE
WEST AND THE RIDGE IS NOT AS STRONG AS HAS THE PAST WEEK. MEANWHILE
THE ECMWF HOLDS THE CENTER OF THE HIGH FURTHER WEST/SOUTHWEST AND
MAINTAINS SOMEWHAT OF A NW FLOW OVER THE REGION THROUGH NEXT WEEK.
IF THE GFS IS RIGHT THE CHANCES FOR RAIN WOULD BE LESSER THAN THE
ECMWF THROUGH NEXT WEEK BUT NEITHER IS ZERO FOR ANY LONG PERIOD OF
TIME AS DISTURBANCES CONTINUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE FLOW.

HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR AGAIN TODAY ACROSS PARTS OF THE
FA. TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT INDICES WILL BE LIKELY IN SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA
AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. A FEW PLACES IN SE PARTS OF THE FA COULD
REACH 105 HEAT INDEX VALUES BUT THIS IS A BIT UNCERTAIN SO WILL
LEAVE FOR THE DAY SHIFT TO KEEP AND EYE ON AND NOT ISSUE A HEAT
ADVISORY AT THIS TIME. TEMPS WILL REMAIN SLIGHTLY COOLER /80S TO LOW
90S/ THROUGH THE WEEKEND BEFORE WARMING BACK INTO THE MID AND UPPER
90S NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL LIKELY LEAD TO A RETURN OF THE TRIPLE DIGIT
HEAT INDICES FOR AT LEAST PARTS OF THE FA NEXT WEEK.
