SHORT TERM (TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY)...
SOUTHERLY WINDS THROUGH THE BOUNDARY LAYER WILL HELP KEEP LOW
LEVEL MOISTURE HIGH...BUT STABLE AIR IN THE MID-LEVELS WILL
PREVENT ANY CHANCES FOR RAIN TODAY. HIGHS WILL AGAIN RETURN TO THE
UPPER 90S/NEAR 100 ACROSS MUCH OF THE CWA. A SHORT-WAVE TROUGH
EMBEDDED IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL SLOWLY PUSH SOUTHEASTWARD
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND TOWARD THE ARK-LA-TEX REGION TODAY
AND THURSDAY. THE BULK OF THE ACTIVITY FROM THIS FEATURE WILL
REMAIN WELL TO OUR EAST...BUT THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED
TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THURSDAY. THE CHANCE FOR
RAIN AS WELL AS GREATER CLOUD COVER WILL KNOCK A FEW DEGREES OFF
HIGH TEMPERATURES ON THURSDAY.

LONG TERM (THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY)...
A COLD FRONT WILL REACH THE HILL COUNTRY THURSDAY NIGHT/EARLY
FRIDAY MORNING. THE APPROACH OF THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL ENHANCE
THE POTENTIAL FOR CONVECTION ACROSS THE REGION...WITH ADDITIONAL
DEVELOPMENT EXPECTED DUE TO MULTIPLE OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES. MODELS
ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH A MESSY FRONTAL PASSAGE THAT
LINGERS/WASHES OUT OVER OUR AREA. GIVEN THE LACK OF A DEFINITIVE
STABILIZING PATTERN IN THE WAKE OF THE FRONT AND PERSISTENT
NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN
PLAINS...HAVE KEPT THE MENTION OF CHANCES FOR RAIN THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. BY MONDAY...THE UPPER RIDGE
ACROSS THE ROCKIES WILL SHIFT EASTWARD JUST ENOUGH TO END CHANCES
FOR RAIN THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK.

HIGH TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE WEEKEND WILL BE MODERATED BY THE
BETTER COVERAGE OF CLOUDS AND CHANCES FOR RAIN. TEMPERATURES WILL
SLOWLY WARM NEXT WEEK...BUT DUE TO PERSISTENT NW FLOW ALOFT AND
THE RE-MOISTENING OF SOILS FROM EXPECTED RAIN...HIGHS SHOULD
REMAIN MOSTLY IN THE MID 90S.
