SHORT TERM.
 
TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/  
 
BROAD AREA OF UPPER RIDGING CONTINUES TO BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE  
SRN CONUS, WHICH RESULTS IN A PERSISTENT FCST PATTERN FOR OUR  
REGION IN THE SHORT TERM. OVERNIGHT MIN TEMPS TONIGHT AND SATURDAY  
NIGHT WILL CONTINUE IN THE MID 70S AREAWIDE, WITH DAYTIME MAX  
TEMPS ON SATURDAY ONCE AGAIN IN THE MID 90S AT MOST SITES. HAVE  
REMAINED CLOSE TO THE VERY REASONABLE NBM FOR TEMPS. DEW POINTS  
IN THE MID 70S SATURDAY WILL KEEP THE HEAT INDEX VALUES IN THE  
UPPER 90S TO JUST OVER 100 DEGREES - NOT QUITE HIGH ENOUGH TO  
NEED A HEAT ADVISORY.  
 
WEAK ELY WAVE MOVG ACROSS THE NRN GULF MAY BRING JUST ENOUGH SEA  
BREEZE ENHANCEMENT TO GET A FEW SHWRS/TSTMS WWD INTO OUR FAR SE SATURDAY  
AFTN, SO HAVE INCLUDED 20 POPS ACROSS THOSE AREAS. /12/  
   
LONG TERM
 
/SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/  
 
FIRST OFF, SUNDAY IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER HOT ONE WITH PEAK HEAT  
INDICES AGAIN IN THE 100 TO 105 DEGREE RANGE. THE INVERTED UPPER  
TROUGH SLOWLY RETROGRADING THROUGH THE REGION WILL BE IN A POSITION  
TO HELP INSTIGATE ISOLATED TO SCATTERED, MAINLY AFTERNOON, SHOWERS  
AND THUNDERSTORMS SOUTHEAST OF TEXARKANA (AND ESPECIALLY TOWARDS  
CENTRAL LOUISIANA). IN THE LATTER AREAS THE CLOUDS AND PRECIPITATION  
WILL HOLD TEMPERATURES DOWN A BIT, BUT ELSEWHERE ANTICIPATE HIGHS IN  
THE 92 TO 95 DEGREE RANGE.  
 
FORTUNATELY, MODEL CONSENSUS REMAINS QUITE GOOD ON THE ANTICIPATED  
COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE EARLY NEXT WEEK. THERE IS EVEN IS A SUBTLE  
TREND TOWARD MORE LARGE-SCALE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN AMPLIFICATION,  
WITH THE RESULTING DEEP NORTH TO NORTHWESTERLY FLOW OVER OUR REGION  
IN BETWEEN THE WESTERN CONUS RIDGE AND EASTERN CONUS TROUGH PROBABLY  
ENOUGH TO DRIVE THE FRONT COMFORTABLY THROUGH THE FOUR STATE REGION.  
MANY LOCATIONS WOULDN'T MIND A LITTLE RAIN AT THIS POINT AND THE  
FRONT LOOKS TO KICK UP SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND  
THUNDERSTORMS LATER MONDAY THROUGH AT LEAST TUESDAY MORNING AS THE  
BOUNDARY PASSES. INGREDIENTS FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM PRODUCTION  
STILL LOOK LIMITED. HOWEVER, THE SLIGHT TREND TOWARD OUR REGION  
GETTING CLIPPED BY MORE OF THE EASTERN CONUS TROUGH ENERGY MAY ALLOW  
FOR JUST ENOUGH WIND SHEAR FOR PERIODIC LINEAR ORGANIZATION (WITH  
PERHAPS SOME GUSTIER WINDS WITH ANY SUCH SEGMENTS). WE WILL KEEP AN  
EYE ON TRENDS IN THIS REGARD.  
 
BEHIND THE FRONT WILL COME COOLER AND DEFINITELY DRIER AIR FOR  
TUESDAY, PERHAPS LASTING THROUGH THURSDAY. OF COURSE, THE MOST  
PLEASANT CONDITIONS WILL BE NORTH OF I-20 - BUT EVEN SOUTHERN ZONES  
WILL HAVE ENOUGH AIR MASS CHANGE TO BE EASILY NOTICEABLE. IN  
GENERAL, EXPECT HIGHS IN THE 80S OVER THIS PERIOD WITH LOWS IN THE  
LOWER TO MIDDLE 60S, WHICH IS 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE.  
 
THE FRONT STALLED NEAR THE COAST LOOKS TO DRIFT BACK NORTH INTO THE  
REGION BY THE END OF THE NEXT WEEK, WITH HUMIDITY AND RAIN CHANCES  
INCREASING. /50/
