.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT

WEAK FNTL BNDRY WAS STALLED OUT ACRS CNTRL AR EARLY THIS MRNG.
SPOTTY CONVECTION HAS BEEN ONGOING OVERNIGHT ACRS PARTS OF ERN AND
SERN AR. ACTIVITY APPEARS TO BE INFLUENCED BY AN UPR IMPULSE
DROPPING SEWD THRU THE AREA. SOME OF THE RAPID UPDATE MODEL DATA
SUGGEST THAT THIS CONVECTION WL CONT TO WORK SEWD THRU THE MRNG HRS
AND WL ADJUST POPS ACCORDINGLY PRIOR TO FCST ISSUANCE.

THE UNSETTLED WX PATTERN WL CONT ACRS THE REGION THRU THE PD. A
PERSISTENT NWLY FLOW ALOFT WL CONT TO BRING A SERIES OF UPR STORM
SYS/S SEWD. THESE FEATURES WL INTERACT WITH THE LINGERING SFC BNDRY
AND ABUNDANT MOISTURE TO PRODUCE SCTD SHRA/TSRA.

TIMING OF EACH UPR FEATURE WL RMN PROBLEMATIC REGARDING CONVECTIVE
TRENDS...BUT THE HIGHEST RAIN CHCS WL CONT TO BE ACRS THE NERN HALF
OF THE FA THE NEXT FEW DAYS. ANOTHER CONCERN IN THE COMING DAYS WL
BE THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED HVY RAINFALL WHERE STORMS AFFECT
REPEATED LOCATIONS. TEMPS FOR THE MOST PART WL RMN CLOSE TO SEASONAL
NORMS.
