AVIATION...  
 
FOR THE ARKLATEX TERMINALS SKC OVER TX W/ VFR DECKS OVER AR/LA  
8-12FT AND DRIFTING EASTWARD. PATCHY BR MAY STILL AFFECT A SITE OR  
TWO. S/SW/W WINDS TODAY NEAR 10KT BACKING TO S AT 14/00Z. MODELS  
INDICATING ANOTHER NOCTURNAL TS PUSH OVERNIGHT INTO FRIDAY WITH  
IFR/MVFR IF SO. WKND LOOKS SUMMERY WITH A POPUP TS POSSIBLE. /24/  
 
PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 351 AM CDT THU AUG 13 2020/  
 
SHORT TERM...  
 
FAIR SKIES FOR MOST OF OUR WEST AS DRIER AIR IS ARRIVING WITH W/NW  
FLOW THROUGH OUT THE SENSIBLE ATMOSPHERE. THE DECKS OVER OUR EAST  
CONTINUE TO LIFT INTO THE MID LEVELS AS THE DRIER AIR IS ERODING  
LOWER LEVELS. THIS LIFT STILL HAS A FEW SHOWERS ALONG THE MS RIVER  
WITH ONE EVEN IN OUACHITA PARISH EXITING STAGE RIGHT. AIR TEMPS  
ARE IN THE LOW TO MID 70S MAINLY FOR AREAS SEEING RAINFALL  
YESTERDAY. MUCH OF E TX IS UPPER 70S TO RIGHT AT 80 AT TYLER AND  
LUFKIN.  
 
STILL LOOKS GOOD FOR TODAY'S HEAT ADVISORY FOR MUCH OF THE AREA  
FROM NOON UNTIL 8PM. IN FACT, PERHAPS TO LINGER INTO FRIDAY FOR  
HALF OF US AGAIN. HOWEVER, ANOTHER NOCTURNAL PUSH OF SHOWERS AND  
THUNDERSTORMS IS MODELED CONSISTENTLY AMONG MANY PROGNOSTICATIONS  
FOR THE I-49 CORRIDOR AND POINTS EAST FOR THE MOST PART, BUT WE  
WILL SEE HOW IT UNFOLDS IN SUBSEQUENT RUNS.  
 
THE SPC HAS A MARGINAL RISK FOR DAY ONE IN WHICH WE WILL SEE  
ACTIVITY MORE LIKELY OVERNIGHT THAN THIS AFTERNOON AND PERHAPS  
EVEN BRUSHING INTO NE TX AGAIN RIDING DOWN THE I-49 CORRIDOR. THE  
WPC QPF AMOUNTS SHOULD NOT SEE A REPEAT OF SUCH EPIC PROPORTIONS  
AS YESTERDAY'S EVENT WITH NO EXCESSIVE RAINFALL OUTLOOK FOR US.  
 
LITTLE CHANGE TO THE WET SOIL DURING TODAY WITH A REPEAT TOMORROW  
TO START THE DAY RANGING ALL THROUGH THE 70S'S ONCE AGAIN. HIGHS  
TOMORROW SIMILAR TO TODAY WITH TRIPLE DIGIT POTENTIAL IN E TX,  
WHILE MUCH COOLER UPPER 80S EAST OF I-49 WITH THE CLOUDS AND  
EXPECTED RAINFALL ACTIVITY. /24/  
 
LONG TERM.../FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/  
 
WEAK SHORTWAVE ENERGY WILL EXIT THE SE SECTIONS OF NCNTRL LA FRIDAY  
EVENING, WITH ANY ISOLATED CONVECTION DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON  
DIMINISHING BY SUNSET. UPPER LEVEL RIDGING ANCHORED OVER THE DESERT  
SW/FOUR CORNERS REGION FRIDAY REMAINS PROGGED TO AMPLIFY N INTO THE  
NRN ROCKIES/CNTRL PLAINS WHILE EXPANDING E INTO THE MID/LOWER MS  
VALLEY SATURDAY, THUS ENHANCING THE HEAT ACROSS THE REGION. ALTHOUGH  
THE GFS WASHES OUT THE WEAK SFC BNDRY OVER EXTREME SE OK/SRN AR  
SATURDAY, THE ECMWF MAINTAINS THIS BNDRY IN PLACE FOR ONE MORE DAY,  
WITH HEAT INDICES NEAR OR EXCEEDING 105 DEGREES OVER MUCH OF THE  
REGION. ISOLATED AFTERNOON CONVECTION STILL CAN'T BE RULED OUT  
SATURDAY OVER THE ERN SECTIONS OF NCNTRL LA ALONG THE ERN PERIPHERY  
OF THE RIDGE, BEFORE DIMINISHING BY SUNSET WITH THE LOSS OF HEATING.  
 
THERE IS GENERAL AGREEMENT AMONGST THE MEDIUM RANGE PROGS OF A  
SHORTWAVE TROUGH DROPPING S INTO THE LOWER MS VALLEY SUNDAY, WHICH  
SHOULD HELP ENHANCE ISOLATED TO SCT CONVECTION DEVELOPMENT OVER  
SCNTRL AR/N LA/DEEP E TX MAINLY DURING THE AFTERNOON, BEFORE  
DIMINISHING IN THE EVENING. HAVE TAILORED SLIGHT CHANCE TO LOW  
CHANCE POPS OVER THESE AREAS, WITH A DEEPENING NW FLOW ALOFT AHEAD  
OF THE AMPLIFYING WRN CONUS UPPER RIDGE HELPING TO REINFORCE A WEAK  
SFC FRONT S INTO THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY, ABOUT 12 HRS  
SOONER THAN WHAT HAS BEEN PROGGED THE LAST FEW DAYS. DRIER AIR NEAR  
AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT IS PROGGED TO QUICKLY ADVECT SWD MONDAY, WITH  
THE MODELS SUGGESTING VERY LITTLE IF ANY QPF, AND THUS HAVE TAPERED  
BACK POPS TO SLIGHT CHANCE AREAWIDE, WITH SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPS AND  
LOWER RH'S EXPECTED TO BE USHERED IN THE FRONT'S WAKE. A SECOND AND  
STRONGER SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL DROP SE ACROSS THE MID MS VALLEY/MID-  
SOUTH REGION TUESDAY THUS REINFORCING THE DRY AIR ALREADY IN PLACE,  
WITH THE GFS DEPICTING THE POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED CONVECTION  
DEVELOPING WITH A MORE AMPLIFIED TROUGHING SOLUTION MAINLY NEAR/S OF  
I-20. THUS HAVE MAINTAINED SLIGHT CHANCE POPS FOR THIS AREA, BEFORE  
TRENDING WITH A DRY FORECAST FOR THE MID AND LATE WEEK TIMEFRAME AS  
THE REGION BECOMES INFLUENCED BY SFC RIDGING FROM THE OH VALLEY SW  
INTO ECNTRL TX. THUS, NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPS AND LOWER  
RH'S LOOK TO PERSIST FROM MIDWEEK THROUGH THE END OF THE NEXT WORK  
WEEK. /15/
