251 PM CDT TUE AUG 30 2016

.DISCUSSION...
Coverage of aftn convection is as expected, far more sparse than
in previous days. Expecting that this trend will continue through
Wednesday, as the upper ridge drifts wswwd across OK and into TX.
Max temps may also inch upwards another degree or two from today for
Wednesday, as limited coverage of clouds/convection will allow
for ample heating. Once again, a few sites may briefly reach heat
index values of around 105 degrees, but these instances will be
too sporadic and short-lived to warrant and Heat Advisory.

Thursday will bring greater coverage of aftn convection as a weak
cold front moves int the region from the nw. The front will slowly
push swd during Thursday and Thursday night, bringing some
cooler/drier air to much of the area. Convection will once again
become sparse through the weekend, with drier air in place and the
upper ridge reinforcing itself over the sern CONUS.

Next work week may bring increasing chances for rain and cooler
temps, as an ely wave is fcst to undercut the ridge and move
along the TX/LA gulf coast. /12/
