.DISCUSSION...
Another hot day today with thermal profiles supporting high temps
a degree or so hotter compared to yesterday. Meanwhile, Tropical
Storm Cindy still expected to make landfall early Thursday morning
near TX/LA border and curve northeast through the Arklatex and
eventually into Mid-Mississippi Valley. This track will place the
forecast area in the less favorable quadrant for heavy rainfall,
though a few outer bands will produce a few showers or isolated
thunder across southeast OK/west central AR Thursday.

Initial cold front expected to move into the area Friday as
tropical system moves east and strong Canadian trough helps
strengthen westerlies over the central U.S. There will be some
chance of showers and thunderstorm with this front as it appears
any potential subsidence on northwest flank of tropical system
should be a non-factor by then. Better chance for storms will
likely arrive with a stronger cold front late Saturday, which
will send temps well below normal by Sunday. Precip chances should
taper off by Monday with dry weather and below normal temps
continuing through Tuesday.
