SHORT TERM
 
(TODAY THROUGH LATE SATURDAY)  
ISSUED AT 257 AM CDT FRI JUL 19 2019  
 
VERY HOT TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO BE THE MAIN MESSAGE IN THE SHORT  
TERM. TEMPERATURES WILL AGAIN TO SURGE INTO THE LOW- TO- MID 90S  
ACROSS THE REGION AS 850- MB TEMPERATURES IN THE 21-24 DEGREE  
CELSIUS RANGE MIX DOWN TO THE SURFACE. THE HIGH HEAT COMBINED  
WITH MID-70S SURFACE DEWPOINTS WILL YIELD HEAT INDEX VALUES  
BETWEEN 100-108. NO CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE OVERNIGHT REGARDING THE  
EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING AND ADVISORY.  
 
A QUICK GLANCE AT FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW AIR PARCELS HITTING  
THEIR CONVECTIVE TEMPERATURE BY AFTERNOON. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR AT  
LEAST SOME SORT OF CUMULUS FIELD TO DEVELOP, PERHAPS PROVIDING  
INTERMITTENT RELIEF FOR THOSE WHO VENTURE OUTDOORS TODAY. THESE  
CLOUDS OUGHT NOT GROW VERTICALLY ENOUGH TO PRODUCE SHOWERS OR  
STORMS GIVEN THE STOUT WARM CAP.  
 
WINDS OUGHT NOT BE AS BREEZY AS YESTERDAY, BUT OCCASIONAL GUSTS  
BETWEEN 20 AND 25 MPH ARE POSSIBLE IN AREAS WEST OF HIGHWAY 65.  
MEANWHILE, OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL GENERALLY FALL INTO THE MID- 70S  
UNDER CLEAR SKIES.  
 
WITH THE MID/UPPER RIDGE FIRMLY IN PLACE, AND NO REAL CHANGE IN  
THE PRESIDING AIR MASS, PERSISTENCE IS THE FORECAST FOR SATURDAY.  
 
   
LONG TERM
 
(SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY)  
ISSUED AT 257 AM CDT FRI JUL 19 2019  
 
THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN BEGINS TO CHANGE SUNDAY INTO MONDAY AS THE  
JET STREAM BUCKLES ACROSS SOUTHERN CANADA. IN RESPONSE, A STRONG  
UPPER- LEVEL LOW WILL DIVE SOUTH TOWARD THE HUDSON BAY WITH A COLD  
FRONT PROGGED TO DIG INTO THE MID-MISSISSIPPI AND OHIO VALLEY  
REGIONS. THIS WILL PUT AN END TO THE CURRENT HEAT WAVE AS THE COLD  
FRONT EVENTUALLY PUSHES INTO OUR REGION FROM THE NORTH.  
 
SOME UNCERTAINTY REMAINS IN THE TIMING OF FRONTAL PASSAGE, BUT  
CONFIDENCE CONTINUES TO INCREASE THAT IT WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY  
SHOWERS AND STORMS. THE LATEST TRENDS SHOW FRONTAL PASSAGE LATE SUNDAY  
INTO MONDAY. TEMPERATURES SHOULD GENERALLY BE LOWER ON SUNDAY AS  
CLOUDS ACCELERATE OUT AHEAD OF THE FRONT, BUT IF FRONTAL PASSAGE  
TRENDS LATER AND DOESN'T ARRIVE UNTIL MONDAY, IT IS POSSIBLE HEAT  
HEADLINES WILL EXTEND INTO SUNDAY. FOR NOW, TEMPS ON SUNDAY HAVE  
TRENDED DOWNWARD WITH HIGHS NEAR 90 AND HEAT INDEX VALUES BELOW  
100.  
 
A STRONG SURFACE HIGH WILL MOVE INTO THE MISSOURI OZARKS IN WAKE  
OF THE PASSING COLD FRONT. THE TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY TIMEFRAME  
WILL FEATURE DAILY HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW 80S WITH  
OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPERATURES NEAR 60.
