...WARM CONDITIONS CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND...

EXTENDED PORTION OF THE FORECAST REMAINS ON TRACK. THE MAIN
PLAYERS WILL BE THE WEAKENING RIDGE OVER THE SW AND SC U.S...
AND AN ADVANCING TROUGH OVER THE PACNW. AFTER OUR CURRENT TROUGH
MOVES INTO THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY LATE THU INTO FRI
MORNING...SHOULD SEE STORM COVERAGE START TO DROP OFF AS MOST
OF THE FORCING SHIFTS INTO KS AND THE PANHANDLE REGION. COOLER
CONDITIONS SHOULD BE IN PLACE ON FRIDAY BEHIND THE FRONT...RIGHT
AROUND SEASONAL AVERAGES. THEN...THE HEAT RETURNS FOR THE WEEKEND
AND ON THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK AS THE RIDGE TO OUR SOUTH SLOWLY
WEAKENS AND SHIFTS EWD...WHILE SW FLOW STRENGTHENS ACROSS WRN CO.
THERE HAS BEEN A SUBTLE TREND OVER THE PAST FEW RUNS OF THE GFS
THAT IS INDICATING A BIT MORE MONSOONAL MOISTURE REMAINING THAN
WHAT EARLIER RUNS WERE SHOWING. SO...AT LEAST FOR THE MTS AND WRN
PORTION OF THE CWA...ONGOING DIURNAL SHOWERS AND STORMS SEEMS A
GOOD BET. WITH NO REAL DISTURBANCE OR WX FEATURE TO BRING UPSLOPE
OR OTHER TRIGGER FOR CONVECTION OVER THE PLAINS...LOOKS LIKE THE
PLAINS WILL CONTINUE TO BE ON THE DRY SIDE...WITH TEMPS ABOVE
AVERAGE FOR THE END OF AUGUST. ROSE
