.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 359 PM CDT MON SEP 29 2014/

DISCUSSION...
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS UPPER LEVEL RIDGING OVER THE CNTRL CONUS
WITH A DEEP TROF SPINNING ACROSS THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST. DESPITE THE
INFLUENCE OF THE RIDGE...WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GENERATE SOME ISOLD TO
WIDELY SCATTERED SHWRS THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS E TX AND N LA...MAINLY
SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 20 WHERE DEW POINTS CONTINUE TO RUN IN THE MID
TO UPPER 60S AND LOWER 70S. FARTHER NORTH...CLOUD COVER IS MUCH MORE
LIMITED WITH JUST SOME FLAT CU AS DEW POINTS ARE SOME 10 DEGREES
LOWER COMPARED TO POINTS SOUTH. CLOUD COVER WILL BEGIN TO DIMINISH
LATER THIS EVENING ALLOWING TEMPERATURES TO FALL OFF NICELY INTO
60S FOR MOST AREAS.

A FEW MORE DAYS OF WARMER WEATHER ARE EXPECTED WITH VERY MINIMAL
RAIN CHANCES THROUGH MID WEEK BUT CHANGES ARE ON THE HORIZON. THE
AFOREMENTIONED UPPER TROF ACROSS THE WEST WILL SLOWLY MIGRATE NEWRD
ACROSS THE ROCKIES AND THE UPPER RIDGE WILL BEGIN TO FLATTEN OUT.
IN RESPONSE...A COLD FRONT WILL SHIFT SEWRD FROM THE ROCKIES INTO
THE PLAINS AND EVENTUALLY OUR REGION BY LATE THURSDAY INTO EARLY
FRIDAY. THIS FRONT WILL ACCELERATE THROUGH THE REGION FROM MIDNIGHT
THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING WITH A LINE OF SHWRS AND TSTMS DEVELOPING
ALONG THE BNDRY. IT WILL USHER IN SOME MUCH COOLER AND DRIER AIR
IN TIME FOR THE WEEKEND WITH SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES
THROUGH MUCH OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD. /19/
