.SHORT TERM /Today through Sunday/...

Dry weather expected through short term period.  Models are in good
agreement, with the weak upper level ridge flattening as surface
high pressure shifts east. Mostly clear skies are expected. ted
across the area with mainly mid and high clouds filtering into the

.LONG TERM /Sunday Night through Friday/...

Expecting a transition to a more active pattern of various weak
impulses and enhanced moisture advecting across the area along
broad NW to zonal flow to allow for slight to chance pops most
days. While no strong forcing is indicated in the model
solutions, the best consensus with greater moisture present
continues to be with a disturbance on Tuesday so have greater
chance to likely pops. QPF with this system has most locations
getting a third to a half inch, and less with any other weak
waves through Wednesday. Euro and GFS are starting to indicate
some stronger forcing and possible fropa sometime in the Thurs/Fri
period but still have notable discrepancies so uncertainty
remains pretty high. Enough progged conditional instability
present to include general slight to chance thunderstorm mention
for portions of the CWA thru period.

Above normal temps thru the week, though coolest day Tuesday
given aforementioned increased precip potential.
