SHORT TERM
 
 
(THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT)  
ISSUED AT 239 PM CDT TUE AUG 9 2022  
 
THANKFULLY, THE SHORT-TERM CONTINUES TO LOOK DISTURBED ENOUGH TO  
MAINTAIN SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORMS CHANCES FOR THE NEXT 36-HOURS.  
THIS DISTURBED ATMOSPHERE COMES WITH A WEAK MID-LEVEL AND SURFACE  
LOW MOVING TOWARDS THE GULF FROM THE LOWER MIDWEST. GIVEN THE NW  
FLOW ALOFT, PLENTY OF MOISTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE, AND UNSTABLE  
AIRMASS WITH THE LOW, RAIN CHANCES SHOULD REMAIN PRETTY CONSTANT  
THIS SHORT-TERM. WIDESPREAD 1-2 INCHES OF MUCH NEEDED RAIN LOOK  
POSSIBLE OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, WITH LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS VERY  
LIKELY. WHILE FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE A MAJOR  
CONCERN, THE THREAT FOR FLASH FLOODING IS ELEVATED IN URBAN AND  
POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.  
 
TEMPERATURES OVER THE COURSE OF THIS SHORT-TERM SHOULD ALSO BE  
SLIGHTLY COOLER THANKS TO THE AFOREMENTIONED RAINFALL. LOWS  
TONIGHT AND TOMORROW WILL RANGE IN THE LOW TO MID-70S. HIGHS  
TOMORROW WILL ALSO BE ON THE "COOL" SIDE FOR SUMMER, WITH  
AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES RANGING IN THE MID TO UPPER-90S.

THE REMNANTS OF OUR WEAK SHEAR/VORTICITY AXIS IS EXPECTED TO  
CONTINUE DRIFTING S ACROSS ECNTRL LA THURSDAY, WITH DIURNAL HEATING  
AND RESULTANT INSTABILITY EXPECTED TO HELP ENHANCE LARGE SCALE  
FORCING NEAR THIS FEATURE FOR SCATTERED CONVECTION DEVELOPMENT  
ESPECIALLY OVER N LA/E TX AND POSSIBLY SRN AR. THE PROGS REMAIN  
CONSISTENT WITH THE RUNS MONDAY IN SLOWING THE SWD MOVEMENT OF THIS  
FEATURE, THUS MAINTAINING THE POTENTIAL FOR CONVECTION A LITTLE  
LONGER ESPECIALLY OVER PORTIONS OF LOWER E TX/N LA, WITH HIGH  
CHANCE/LIKELY POPS MAINTAINED THURSDAY FOR THESE AREAS, BEFORE  
DIMINISHING DURING THE EVENING WITH THE LOSS OF AVAILABLE  
HEATING/INSTABILITY. THIS WEAKNESS ALOFT IS PROGGED TO DRIFT SSW  
ALONG THE SE PERIPHERY OF THE UPPER RIDGE ANCHORED FROM THE ROCKIES  
INTO THE CNTRL PLAINS/MID MS VALLEY, WHICH SHOULD BEGIN TO BUILD  
MORE S BY FRIDAY INTO PORTIONS OF THE LOWER MS VALLEY. THE POTENTIAL  
FOR MORE SCATTERED CONVECTION SHOULD BECOME MORE FOCUSED FARTHER S  
INTO DEEP E TX/NCNTRL LA FRIDAY, WITH ISOLATED CONVECTION FARTHER N  
BUT DIMINISHING BY SUNSET.  
 
HEIGHT RISES AHEAD OF THE BUILDING RIDGE AND GREATER SUBSIDENCE WILL  
RESULT IN DRIER AND HOTTER CONDITIONS RETURNING TO MUCH OF THE  
REGION FOR THE UPCOMING WEEKEND, ALTHOUGH ISOLATED CONVECTION WILL  
STILL REMAIN POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF DEEP E TX AND NCNTRL LA, IN  
VC OF THE WEAKNESS, ALTHOUGH SOME VARIABILITY STILL REMAINS AMONGST  
THE MEDIUM RANGE PROGS AS TO WHETHER OR NOT A WEAKNESS ALOFT CAN  
SLIDE S AROUND THE RIDGE ACROSS THE MID AND LOWER MS VALLEY MONDAY  
AND TUESDAY AND WEAKEN THE RIDGE ENOUGH TO FOCUS AT LEAST ISOLATED  
CONVECTION OVER PORTIONS OF SRN AR/NCNTRL LA. CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW  
IN THIS SCENARIO MONDAY, ALTHOUGH THE NBM SUGGESTS THAT THIS COULD  
BE THE CASE TUESDAY, WHERE SLIGHT CHANCE POPS WERE INSERTED FOR THE  
ERN-MOST COUNTIES AND PARISHES IN SCNTRL AR/NCNTRL LA. DID NOT  
DEVIATE MUCH WITH THE NBM TEMPS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF BUMPING MAX  
TEMPS UP A DEGREE OR SO EACH DAY TO ACCOMMODATE THE INCREASED  
INSOLATION AND INCREASED SUBSIDENCE WITH THE BUILDING RIDGE. THIS  
WOULD RESULT IN A RETURN OF TRIPLE DIGITS TEMPS TO MUCH OF E TX BY  
MONDAY, EXPANDING FARTHER E INTO EXTREME SE OK/SW AR/POSSIBLY WRN LA  
BY TUESDAY.

AVIATION
 
 
(18Z TAFS)  
ISSUED AT 1234 PM CDT TUE AUG 9 2022  
 
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE ACROSS THE REGION  
TODAY, WITH HEAVY RAIN ANTICIPATED WITH SOME STORMS. THIS WILL  
RESULT IN HEAVILY REDUCED CIGS AND VIS DURING IT'S DURATION. MOST  
TERMINALS ARE CARRYING SOME FORM OF PRECIPITATION INTO TOMORROW  
MORNING. ADDITIONALLY, LOOK FOR WIDESPREAD MVFR CEILINGS PAST  
10/12Z WITH THE MORNING CLOUD DECK.
