AREAWIDE IN THE AFTERNOON. AS WAS THE CASE THIS AFTERNOON, VERY  
ISOLATED CONVECTION AGAIN CAN NOT BE RULED OUT FROM MID-AFTERNOON  
THROUGH EARLY EVENING MAINLY ACROSS PORTIONS OF E TX/N LA, BUT LOW  
CONFIDENCE PRECLUDES THUNDER MENTION IN THESE TERMINALS ATTM. AN  
ELEVATED CU FIELD MAY PERSIST AGAIN SUNDAY EVENING AS IT DIMINISHES  
FROM E TO W ACROSS N LA/E TX, BUT OTHERWISE, SKC WILL RETURN TO THE

SHORT TERM.../TONIGHT/  
 
THE ELEVATED CU FIELD CONTINUES TO GRADUALLY DIMINISH FROM E TO W  
ACROSS E TX AND WRN LA, ALTHOUGH A COUPLE OF VERY ISOLATED SHRA  
HAVE REDEVELOPED IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES OVER S AND W SHV, BUT  
SHOULD DIMINISH HERE SHORTLY AS THE AIR MASS CONTINUES TO  
STABILIZE IN WAKE OF ANOTHER VERY HOT AFTERNOON. THE SHORT TERM  
PROGS REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS CU EXITING THE WRN  
SECTIONS OF E TX BY OR SHORTLY AFTER 06Z, WITH A MOSTLY CLEAR SKY  
EXPECTED OVERNIGHT AS THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE REMAINS FIRMLY  
ANCHORED FROM THE RED RIVER VALLEY OF SRN OK/N TX E ACROSS AR INTO  
THE TN VALLEY. MEANWHILE, SFC RIDGING WILL ALSO REMAIN ANCHORED  
FROM THE OH VALLEY SW INTO N TX OVERNIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY, WITH THE  
RIDGING ALOFT EXPECTED TO AMPLIFY N ACROSS THE PLAINS AND MS  
VALLEY SUNDAY. THUS, HOT AND MOSTLY DRY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST,  
WITH TRIPLE DIGIT TEMPS AGAIN A GOOD BET ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE  
REGION, ESPECIALLY ALONG AND N OF THE I-20 CORRIDOR WHERE VERY DRY  
AND WARM TOPSOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS EXIST WITH THE ONGOING  
DROUGHT.  
 
FOR THE FORECAST UPDATE, HAVE TWEAKED THE SKY GRIDS TO REFLECT THE  
DIMINISHING CU FIELD FROM E TO W TONIGHT, WHILE ALSO TWEAKING MIN  
TEMPS UP A TAD ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. ALSO BUMPED UP MAX TEMPS  
TO REFLECT TRIPLE DIGIT TEMPS SUNDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS PORTIONS OF  
E TX/N LA, WITH HEAT INDICES EXPECTED TO PEAK NEAR OR A BIT  
BELOW HEAT ADVISORY CRITERIA. STILL CAN'T RULE OUT VERY ISOLATED  
CONVECTION DEVELOPING BY MID AND LATE AFTERNOON ACROSS PORTIONS OF  
E TX/N LA, BUT WILL MAINTAIN A DRY FORECAST AND ALLOW THE MID  
SHIFT TO ADDRESS ANY SLIGHT CHANCE POP ADDITIONS. OTHERWISE, THE  
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST IS ON TRACK.  
 
ZONE UPDATE ALREADY OUT...GRIDS WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY.
