.DISCUSSION...
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATING A DRY TONGUE ALOFT MOVING INTO THE
REGION AHEAD OF A WEAK BACKDOOR COLD FRONT. MEANWHILE...AN UPPER
RIDGE AXIS CONTINUES TO WORK EWRD FROM THE PLAINS AND WILL HOLD
SERVE OVER OUR REGION THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THE DRIER AIR MOVING IN
BEHIND THIS WEAK BACKDOOR FRONT WILL REINFORCE THE CURRENT AIR
MASS AND SHOULD ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO COOL A BIT MORE THIS EVENING
WITH LITTLE TO NO CLOUD COVER AND NEAR CALM WINDS. TEMPERATURES
WILL GENERALLY REMAIN NEAR CLIMO FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS WEEK.
BY THURSDAY...THE UPPER RIDGE FLATTENS OUT AND SHIFTS EAST AS THE
NEXT UPPER TROF SWINGS OUT OF THE ROCKIES INTO THE PLAINS. THIS
STILL LOOKS TO HAVE LITTLE IMPACT ON OUR REGION EXCEPT FOR A FEW
SHWRS/TSTMS POSSIBLE OVER OUR FAR NWRN CWA SO HAVE HELD WITH
SLIGHT CHANCE POPS FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THURSDAY.

THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD LOOKS WARM AND DRY AS UPPER
RIDGING RETURNS FOR THE WEEKEND. HIGHS WILL RUN SLIGHTLY ABOVE
NORMAL IN THE MID TO POSSIBLY UPPER 80S OVER OUR SRN TIER CWA THIS
WEEKEND WITH SOUTH WINDS FINALLY RETURNING. OUR NEXT COLD FRONT
LOOKS TO ENTER THE PICTURE DURING THE DAY NEXT TUESDAY WITH BETTER
CHANCES FOR SHWRS/TSTMS AS RETURN SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL PROVIDE A
DECENT MOISTURE SUPPLY AHEAD OF THE FRONT. /19/
