.DISCUSSION...
Issued at 349 AM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

Little change to the going forecast as relatively tranquil, early
fall-like weather continues through much of the period. Surface high
pressure will remain in control through mid-week, yielding continued
dry conditions and below normal temperatures with highs in the
middle 70s to middle 80s Monday through Wednesday. Tropospheric
moisture will remain relatively low, providing several days of sunny
skies for the area.

High pressure will begin to lose its grip over the area by Thursday,
with gradually increasing temperatures and moisture creeping back
into the area. Isentropic ascent along with an approaching upper
wave should yield chances for elevated thunderstorms Thursday night
into Friday. Chances for precipitation should end as the wave
departs early Saturday morning, spelling a dry weekend ahead. The
upper ridge builds into the area late in the weekend, with a warming
H85 thermal axis stretching into the area, potentially returning a
few 90 degree readings Sunday into next Monday.

VFR conditions will continue as high pressure continues to dominate
the region. Will have to monitor the potential for fog development
overnight at KSTJ, but at this point, the setup doesn`t look as
impressive as this morning due to the increased temperature and
dewpoint spreads.
