SHORT TERM
 
/TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/  
COLD AND RAINY SHORT-TERM PERIOD AHEAD. COLD FRONT HAS MADE IT  
COMPLETELY S OF OUR REGION THIS AFTN, WITH PORTIONS OF OUR N AND W  
ALREADY DOWN INTO THE 40S. CAA TO CONTINUE TO LEAD TO FALLING  
TEMPS THROUGH TONIGHT. TEMPS TO HOLD NEAR-STEADY THEREAFTER, AS  
MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF RAIN MOVE OVERHEAD.  
 
DISTURBED SWLY FLOW ALOFT TO OVERRUN THE COLD AIRMASS AT THE SFC,  
PRODUCING STRONG ISENTROPIC LIFT RESULTING IN WIDESPREAD RAINFALL  
THROUGHOUT THE PD. RAIN WILL LIKELY BE HEAVIEST ALONG THE 850 MB  
FRONT, BUT MODELS DO NOT COMPLETELY AGREE AS TO WHERE THIS WILL  
SET UP. HAVE STAYED MORE WITH THE EURO SOLUTION WITH RESPECT TO  
PLACEMENT OF THE HEAVIER RAIN/HIGHER POPS, AS IT SEEMS TO SPLIT  
THE MODEL DIFFERENCES.  
 
RAIN TO BEGIN LETTING UP TOWARDS THE END OF THE PD, AS THE UPPER  
RIDGE OVER THE SE CONUS BEGINS TO NOSE BACK WWD. /12/  
   
LONG TERM
 
/WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/  
UPPER LEVEL CUT OFF LOW SW STATES BRINGING SW FLOW INTO AREA WILL  
BE REPLACED BY NW FLOW ALOFT AS UPPER RIDGING DEVELOPS OVER  
CASCADES, SPILLING CANADIAN AIR BACK INTO REGION AND BRINGING IN  
DRIER AIR ALOFT ON WEDNESDAY. TAPERING OFF RAIN CHANCES DURG THE  
DAY FROM THE NORTH.  
 
THIS RELIEF FROM THE RAIN MAY BE SHORT LIVED AS PACIFIC MOISTURE  
AROUND BASE OF UPPER LOW OVER SW STATES BEGINS TO OVERRUN THE  
SHALLOW COLDER AIR OVER EAST TX. GFS AGGRESSIVE BRINGING MOISTURE  
BACK INTO AREA ON THURSDAY WITH ECMWF AND NAM MUCH MORE GRADUAL  
AND BEGIN TO BRING -RA INTO AREA ON FRIDAY. AS THE CLOSED UPPER  
LOW OPENS UP AND KICKS OUT ACROSS PLAINS, COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH  
AREA IN NW FLOW. RAIN CHANCES TO BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD MAINLY  
FRIDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY SATURDAY, AND THEN WILL DECREASE FROM THE  
NORTH LATER ON SATURDAY AS THIS FRONT PUSHES ACROSS THE REGION.  
THIS REINFORCING SHOT OF COOLER AIR WILL KEEP THE AUTUMN TEMPS  
ACROSS THE REGION WITH OVERNIGHT LOWS IN 50S AND POSSIBLY INTO 40S  
WITH RADIATION COOLING BY LATER IN THE WKND, AND DAYTIME HIGHS  
MOSTLY IN THE 60S. /07/
