UPDATED W/ A DISCUSSION FOR THE 05/12Z TAFS  
 
VFR CONDNS ARE EXPECTED TO PREVAIL THROUGH THE PD W/ BREEZY S/WRLY  
WINDS AT MOST TERMINALS BY TUES AFTERNOON. SOME VERY ISOLATED TS  
MAY OCCUR AROUND THE STATE THIS AFTERNOON, BUT CONFIDENCE REMAINS  
VERY LOW, SO HAVE KEPT MENTIONS OF PRECIP OUT FOR NOW.

PREV DISCUSSION
 
(ISSUED 343 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022)  
SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT  
 
WITH REGARD TO THE SHORT TERM FCST, THERE'S NOT TOO MUCH TO UPDATE  
YOU ON THAT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN SAID IN THE PAST FEW FCST  
CYCLES...IT'S GONNA BE HOT, AND JUST PLAIN NASTY OUTSIDE...BUT IT IS  
SUMMER AFTERALL.  
 
AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPS AROUND THE AREA WL TOP OUT IN THE UPPER 90S,  
WITH AN INCREASING NUMBER OF LOCATIONS LKLY HITTING THE TRIPLE DIGIT  
MARK, PARTICULARLY IN THE UPPER AR RIVER VALLEY, AND ACROSS THE  
N/ERN PORTION OF THE STATE. SOME VERY ISOLATED SHOWERS/STORMS MAY BE  
SEEN AROUND THE REGION AGAIN, BUT WL LKLY NOT RESULT IN ANY  
SUBSTANTIAL RAINFALL.  
 
FOR OUR FOLKS IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE OUACHITAS AND OZARKS, AND  
MOST OF THE WRN AND N/WRN PORTIONS OF THE STATE, THERE MAY BE A  
SILVER LINING, THIS BEING INCREASING S/WRLY WINDS INTO THE  
AFTERNOON...THIS IS PROBABLY HARD TO BELIEVE AS USUALLY ITS WINDS  
FROM THE NORTH THAT ARE GOOD THIS TIME OF YEAR, BUT BEAR WITH  
ME...W/ INCREASING VERTICAL MIXING, LOW-LVL MOISTURE SHOULD BEGIN TO  
TAPER DOWN IN THE AFTERNOON, HELPING TO EASE THE MUGGY FACTOR, AT  
THE COST OF AN INCREASING AIR TEMPERATURE.  
 
ELSEWHERE AROUND THE FA...INCLUDING CNTRL, N/ERN, AND S/ERN AR,  
AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES WL EASILY TOP OUT NEAR 105 TO 110  
DEGREES, RESULTING IN ANOTHER AFTERNOON AND EVENING PERIOD OF  
HAZARDOUS HEAT. SO, THE MESSAGE REMAINS THE SAME:  
 
IF YOU INTEND TO BE OUTSIDE TODAY, OR HAVE TO, PLEASE BE SURE TO  
TAKE BREAKS IN THE SHADE OR INSIDE, STAY WELL-HYDRATED, AND DON'T  
FORGET ABOUT THE SUNSCREEN! IF YOU CAN, CHECK UP ON THOSE WHO MAY BE  
MORE VULNERABLE OR ARE WITHOUT SOME FORM OF A/C.  
 
THE OTHER HAZARD OF NOTE WL BE OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPS, AS WE WL LKLY  
SEE A FEW CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS WITH TEMPERATURES ONLY FALLING INTO THE  
UPPER 70S, OR EVEN LOW 80S, AND NOT ALLOWING FOR ANY OVERNIGHT  
RELIEF.  
 
FOR THE WED FCST...RINSE AND REPEAT, SEE ABOVE...  
 
LONG TERM...THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY  
 
DANGEROUS HEAT WILL CONTINUE AS THE EXTENDED PERIOD BEGINS. A RIDGE  
OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES, AND MAXIMUM  
AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES FROM 100 TO 115 DEGREES THURSDAY AND  
FRIDAY. THERE WILL LIKELY BE A CONTINUATION OF HEAT ADVISORIES. ANY  
RAIN WILL BE SPOTTY THROUGH FRIDAY.  
 
THE HIGH WILL WOBBLE TOWARD THE PLAINS THIS WEEKEND, WITH A  
NORTH/NORTHWEST WIND FLOW ALOFT DRIVING A COLD FRONT INTO ARKANSAS  
BY SATURDAY. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL  
ACCOMPANY THE FRONT FOLLOWED BY SLIGHTLY COOLER AND NOT SO  
OPPRESSIVE CONDITIONS SUNDAY/MONDAY.  
 
AS THE PERIOD ENDS, THE HIGH WILL REMAIN TO THE WEST, AND YET  
ANOTHER COLD FRONT WILL BE ON THE DOORSTEP TO THE NORTH MONDAY  
NIGHT. LOOK FOR AT LEAST SMALL CHANCES OF RAIN AND CLOSER TO  
SEASONAL TEMPERATURES.
