.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 429 AM CDT WED AUG 26 2015/

SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT
A TRANQUIL PATTERN IS SETTING UP IN THE NEAR TERM...WITH
MOSTLY DRY WEATHER AND BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN TO THE WEST/SOUTHWEST
THROUGH THE PERIOD...AND THAT WILL KEEP THE HEAT AWAY. MOVING
AROUND THE RIDGE FROM THE ROCKIES TO THE UPPER MIDWEST WILL
BE A FAIRLY POTENT STORM SYSTEM ALOFT. THE WILL HAPPEN
THURSDAY/FRIDAY...BUT MUCH OF THE ENERGY WITH THE SYSTEM WILL
GO WELL TO THE NORTH OF ARKANSAS.

AS THE SYSTEM GOES BY...A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL PUSH TOWARD THE
REGION FRIDAY NIGHT/SATURDAY. GIVEN A LACK OF ENERGY
UPSTAIRS...AND LITTLE MOISTURE DOWNSTAIRS...PRECIPITATION CHANCES
WILL BE MINIMAL ALONG THE FRONT. HAVE A FEW MORE CLOUDS AND
ISOLATED SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FORECAST.

LONG TERM...SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY
LITTLE CHANGE TO THE LONG TERM WITH FORECAST IN GOOD SHAPE. LONG
TERM BEGINS WITH A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE TO OUR WEST AND AN UPPER
LOW TO THE EAST. A WEAK BOUNDARY WILL WASH OUT OVER THE AREA AND
WITH LITTLE MOISTURE IN PLACE WILL NOT PRODUCE ANY PRECIPITATION.
RIDGE WILL ONCE AGAIN BUILD INTO THE REGION FOR THE START OF THE
NEW WEEK AND BRING A RETURN OF SLIGHTLY WARMER...YET NEAR NORMAL
TEMPERATURES.
