.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Wednesday night)
Issued at 222 PM CDT Mon Aug 14 2017

Looks as though the main weather story in the near term will be
the return of heat and humidity to the region. By Wednesday
afternoon, heat indices may be running up close to 100 degrees
with surface dewpoints in the mid 70s at many locations. As winds
become more southerly, overall moisture will also remain quite
high, though highest PWATs should remain to the north and south
of our area. Cannot rule out isolated showers/thunderstorms during
the heat of the day, but many locations will likely stay rainfree
until a stronger short wave nears the MS River Valley later
Wednesday night.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Monday)
Issued at 144 PM CDT Mon Aug 14 2017

To be issued shortly.
