AVIATION
 
 
FOR THE 24/12Z TAFS, LOW CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG HAVE RESULTED IN  
MVFR/IFR FLIGHT CONDITIONS ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. CEILINGS AND  
VISIBILITIES SHOULD IMPROVE BACK INTO THE VFR RANGE BY 24/15Z.  
SCATTERED CU WILL LIKELY PERSIST FOR MUCH OF THE DAY BEFORE  
CLEARING AROUND SUNSET. PERSISTENT SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL BRING  
ANOTHER ROUND OF MVFR/IFR CEILINGS TO MOST TAF SITES AFTER 25/06Z.

/ISSUED 328 AM CDT FRI MAY 24 2019/  
 
SHORT TERM.../TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY/  
 
A LARGE AND UNSEASONABLY STRONG UPPER RIDGE WILL REMAIN CENTERED  
OVER THE GEORGIA/ALABAMA STATE LINE DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF  
DAYS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE OUR WEATHER. CONVECTION  
CURRENTLY ONGOING ALONG A DRYLINE AND QUASI-STATIONARY FRONT OVER  
WESTERN TEXAS AND WESTERN OKLAHOMA WILL REMAIN WELL NORTHWEST OF  
THE ARKLATEX. STRONG SUBSIDENCE FROM THE RIDGE SHOULD GENERALLY  
KEEP THE AREA PRECIP FREE. HOWEVER, SOME OF THE SHORT-RANGE MODEL  
GUIDANCE DOES SUGGEST SOME VERY ISOLATED DIURNALLY-DRIVEN  
CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE SEA BREEZE MAY DEVELOP ACROSS OUR  
FAR SOUTHERN COUNTIES/PARISHES DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS OF TODAY  
AND SATURDAY. HOWEVER, THE OVERALL RAIN CHANCES ARE TOO LOW TO  
WARRANT A MENTION IN THE GRIDS. OTHERWISE, A PERSISTENCE FORECAST  
WILL BE THE RULE WITH DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES HOLDING NEARLY  
STEADY OR WARMING BY A DEGREE OR TWO EACH DAY.  
 
CN  
 
LONG TERM.../SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/  
 
UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN CONUS TO MAINTAIN DRY  
CONDITIONS ACROSS THE ARKLATEX FROM SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH EARLY  
NEXT WEEK. SURFACE HIGH TO SHIFT SOUTH AND EAST ON TUESDAY ALLOWING  
FOR A RETURN SOUTHERLY FLOW OF MOISTURE ALOFT. ADDITIONALLY, A COLD  
FRONT APPROACHING THE ARKLATEX FROM THE GREAT PLAINS WILL ALLOW FOR  
INCREASED RAIN CHANCES ACROSS THE NORTHWESTERN HALF OF THE ARKLATEX  
ON TUESDAY. FRONT TO STALL AROSS THE REGION ON WEDNESDAY AND  
THURSDAY ALLOWING FOR AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN WITH SCATTERED  
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE EACH DAY.  
 
TEMPERATURES TO RANGE FROM LOWS IN AROUND 70 TO HIGHS AROUND 90  
THROUGH TUESDAY, WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES EXPECTED ON WEDNESDAY AND  
THURSDAY. COULD SEE HIGHS ONLY REACHING THE LOWER TO MID 80S NORTH  
OF THE FRONT ACROSS THE OUACHITAS, WITH SLIGHTLY WARMER TEMPERATURES  
SOUTH. /05/
