.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 339 AM CDT Tue Jul 25 2017/

DISCUSSION...
The story once again today are the hot temperature across the
ArkLaTex. IR shows drier are moving in from the west this air will
cause most areas to warm up quickly with temperatures in the lower
90s by 11 am. Daytime high temperatures will reach the mid 90s with
heat index reaching the lower 100s. At this a heat advisory will not
be needed due to criteria not being met, but later this week a heat
advisory maybe needed. Overnight lows this week will be near the mid
to upper 70s with light to variable winds.

Rain chances will increase Friday ahead of an approaching cold
front moving in from the west. Guidance is not in agreement with
the timing and movement of the the front. Although, the front
might stall to the northwest of the region it will create enough
lift to cause scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms Friday
and Saturday. Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day and
remain in the shade if possible. /21/
