Morning convection and cloud debris helped stabilize much of the
area, therefore keeping most thunderstorm chances at bay for the
remainder of the afternoon into tonight. Heights will rise and upper
ridging builds into the central CONUS beginning Saturday and holding
through Monday. The end result will be a period of hot and humid
conditions, and little to no chance of measurable precipitation for
the holiday weekend. Afternoon highs will warm into the lower to
middle 90s during the holiday weekend. The additional concern of
unseasonably high heat indicies will also be an issue, with maximum
values reaching the middle to upper 90s. The closed upper low over
the Intermountain West will gradually open and eject into the
Central Plains on Tuesday and Wednesday. While this will only cut
high temperatures a few degrees, chances for scattered thunderstorms
will return during the mid-week period.

Looks like VFR conditions will prevail at the terminals over the
next 24 hours. Only issue might be a little early morning fog,
but confidence is not high enough to warrant including at this
time. Otherwise, little change to the wind is expected.
