.AVIATION...
/00Z TAFS/ VFR FORECAST THROUGH AT LEAST 06Z FRIDAY EVENING...AS
OUR QUASI-PERMANENT UPPER LEVEL RIDGE MAINTAINS ITS GRIP OVER THE
SOUTHERN PLAINS. THIN HIGH CLOUDINESS...PARTIALLY ASSOCIATED WITH
TROPICAL STORM KEVIN IN THE EASTERN PACIFIC...WILL CONTINUE TO
STREAM NORTHEASTWARD OVER N TX TONIGHT AND FRIDAY.
OTHERWISE...SCT AFTERNOON CUMULUS WILL REDEVELOP AT ALL TAF SITES
BY 16Z FRIDAY. MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY OVER CENTRAL TX MAY BE
SUFFICIENT AFTER 18Z TO TRIGGER ISOLATED AFTERNOON SHOWERS OR
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE WACO VICINITY...BUT THEIR PROBABILITY OF
OCCURRENCE IS NOT GREAT ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN THE LATEST TAF FOR
KACT. LOW LEVEL SOUTHEAST FLOW WILL PERSIST AT ALL SITES THROUGH
FRIDAY EVENING...AT SPEEDS OF 6-10KTS.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 330 PM CDT THU SEP 3 2015/
AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER SOUTHEAST TEXAS CONTINUES TO WEAKEN
AND DRIFT SOUTHWEST AS AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER WEST TEXAS SHIFTS
SLIGHTLY EASTWARD INTO THE WEEKEND. ISOLATED AFTERNOON
SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS ARE STILL POSSIBLE DURING THE AFTERNOON
THROUGH FRIDAY SOUTHEAST OF A TEMPLE TO CORSICANA TO CANTON LINE.
OTHERWISE...EXPECT MOSTLY SUNNY AND SEASONABLY HOT DAYS AND CLEAR

INCREASE BY A FEW DEGREES OVER THE WEEKEND...AND A FEW SPOTS MAY
REACH THE 100 DEGREE MARK SUNDAY AND MONDAY. NORMAL HIGHS FOR THE
FIRST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER ARE 90 TO 94 DEGREES.

AN UPPER LEVEL LOW IS MOVING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST... NEAR
SOUTHERN VANCOVER ISLAND/NORTHWESTERN WASHINGTON THIS AFTERNOON.
THIS LOW WILL DIG SOUTH AND SOUTH SOUTHEASTWARD DURING THE NEXT
36 TO 48 HOURS...BEFORE MOVING EAST AND NORTHEAST INTO THE
NORTHERN PLAINS SUNDAY. ANOTHER SHORT WAVE WILL FOLLOW IN THE WAKE
OF THE FIRST UPPER LEVEL LOW AND DIG A DEEPER TROUGH ACROSS THE
WEST. A SERIES OF SHORTWAVES WILL THEN MOVE THROUGH THE TROUGH
EARLY TO MID NEXT WEEK....BREAKING DOWN THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE.
THIS WILL ALLOW A COLD FRONT TO APPROACH THE RED RIVER NEXT
