AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LITTLE ROCK AR
204 AM CDT TUE AUG 25 2015

.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY

THE DRIER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH INTO THE STATE AS SFC HIGH
PRESSURE TO THE NORTH MOVES TOWARDS THE CWA. MOST LOCATIONS EARLY
THIS MORNING WERE ALREADY SEEING DEWPTS IN THE 50S AND 60S...WITH
JUST THE SWRN COUNTIES REMAINING IN THE UPPER 60S TO LOW 70S DEWPTS.
THIS WILL CHANGE HOWEVER AS THE DRIER AIR MAKES ITS WAY INTO SWRN AR
BY LATER THIS MORNING. A FAIR SKY WAS ALSO ALLOWING TEMPS TO DROP
FAIRLY RAPIDLY...WITH TEMPS IN THE DRY AIR AND UNDER THE CLEAR SKY
ALREADY IN THE 50S TO MID 60S.

THERE COULD BE SOME ISOLATED SHRA THIS MORNING ACROSS THE SWRN
COUNTIES...BUT DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ELSEWHERE. EXPECT THE
NEXT SEVERAL DAYS TO REMAIN DRY...WITH BELOW NORMAL TEMPS EXPECT.
TEMPS WILL GRADUALLY WARM BY LATER THIS WEEK...ESPECIALLY BY THE
END OF THE PERIOD AS SRLY FLOW RETURNS TO THE STATE. WILL ALSO
INTRODUCE SOME SLIGHT CHANCE POPS FOR SOME SHRA/TSRA AS AN UPPER
SHORTWAVE APPROACHES FROM THE WEST. HOWEVER...GIVEN THE PERSISTENT
DRY AIR IN PLACE OVER THE COMING DAYS...THE LACK OF DEEP MOISTURE
WILL KEEP OVERALL PRECIP CHANCES LOW INTO THE LONG TERM PERIOD.

&&

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY

AGAIN...VERY LITTLE CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE GOING FORECAST.
NORTHERLY UPPER FLOW WILL SEND A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY INTO THE
REGION ON SUNDAY. WITH LITTLE DEEP-LAYER MOISTURE AHEAD OF IT...
THERE WILL BE LITTLE IF ANY CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION. TEMPERATURES
WILL BE CLOSE TO AVERAGE.
