UPDATE...
Quick update to remove POPs from the forecast for the rest of
the night. Diurnal convection has dissipated late this evening
and no additional development is expected. Also made some minor
tweaks to temps and dewpoints to account for trends.

AVIATION...
/00Z TAFS/

Thunderstorms just south of KSJT will bring gusty south winds up

SHORT TERM...
(time period)
(Tonight and Tuesday)

Scattered showers and thunderstorms developing across the area this
afternoon and evening will dissipate shortly after sunset with the
loss of daytime heating. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies
overnight with lows near seasonal normals.

Upper level high pressure will become more centered over the region
on Tuesday. This will result in rain chances being suppressed even
more. Isolated afternoon/early evening storms cannot be completely
ruled out, although most places will remain dry. Given this and the
rising heights over the region, high temps will be above normal,
with upper 90s to near 100 degrees expected.

LONG TERM...
(Tuesday Night through Monday)

Heat will be the main concern for the work week as the upper level
ridge remains over the area. Afternoon temperatures will climb
above seasonal normals, into the upper 90s to around 100 degrees,
with dewpoints in the 60s. The warmest days will most likely
occur on Thursday and Friday. Next chance for rain will come this
weekend as the ridge slides off to the west a bit, putting the
area in northerly flow aloft. May see a few storms in the northern
counties Friday evening, but the better chance of storms for the
weekend will be Saturday night and Sunday as a weak boundary moves
in to north Texas. Any storms developing in Oklahoma and north
Texas may send outflow boundaries southward, allowing storms to
develop across west central Texas.
