SHORT TERM.../TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY/  
UPPER LOW, WHICH BROUGHT HEAVY RAINS TO THE REGION FOR THE PAST  
WKND HAS MOVED TO THE NE. PPERSISTENT SFC FRONT ACROSS NRN  
PORTIONS OF AREA WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY SHIFT NWD. AREAS OF FOG HAVE  
DEVELOPED ALONG AND NORTH OF THIS BOUNDARY OVERNIGHT, ALONG WITH  
SCATTERED LOW TOPPED SHOWERS ACROSS THE SAME REGION. HOWEVER, A  
WEAK SFC LOW OVER EAST TX WILL PROVIDE ENOUGH SOUTHERLY FLOW TO  
PRODUCE MAINLY DIURNAL CONVECTION TO EASTERN PORTIONS OF CWA, AND  
SHOWER MAY PERSIST NEAR NORTHWARD MOVG FRONTAL BOUNDARY INTO AFTN  
ACROSS SE OK AND PORTIONS SW AR, WHILE DRIER AIR BEGINNING TO  
FILTER INTO EAST TX. HAVE NUDGED DAYTIME HIGHS UP INTO MID TO  
UPPER 80S TO ACCOUNT FOR REDUCED SKY COVER AND S-SW WINDS. PATCHY  
FOG POSSIBLE ACROSS THE AREA OVERNIGHT BUT WILL BE MORE RADIATION  
COOLING WITH DAMP GROUND RATHER THAN BOUNDARY RELATED AS IS THE  
CASE NOW. FAIRLY SIMILAR ON TUESDAY WITH PERHAPS A COUPLE DEGREES  
WARMER WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S TO NEAR 90, AND DIURNAL WIDELY  
SCATTERED CONVECTION ACROSS EASTERN CWA AGAIN./07/.  
 
LONG TERM.../TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/  
 
AN UNSETTLED AND ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE  
REMAINDER OF THE WORK WEEK AND INTO AT THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND. THERE  
WILL BE A FEW BREAKS IN THE RAINFALL WITH SOME OF THE OVERNIGHT  
PERIODS HAVING THE LEAST ACTIVITY WITH LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING.  
A BROAD LONGWAVE TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE VERY SLOWLY ACROSS  
THE CONUS AND RESULTING IN A SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT. THIS WILL  
HELP PROVIDE RICH PLUME OF MOISTURE OVER THE AREA. SHOWERS WILL BE  
OVER THE MORE EASTERN PARTS OF THE FOUR STATE REGION FOR THE START  
PF THE LONG TERM IN WAKE OF THE DEPARTED SURFACE LOW AND WARM FRONT  
FROM THIS PAST WEEKEND. DISTURBANCES MOVING AROUND THE BASE OF THE  
UPPER TROUGH WILL COMBINE WITH AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT DURING MID  
WEEK TO PRODUCE SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.  
THE FRONT WILL ENTER THE AREA LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND DURING THE DAY  
WEDNESDAY AND WILL STALL ALONG THE MIDDLE AND UPPER TEXAS COAST AND  
ACROSS SOUTH LOUISIANA BY THURSDAY. WEAK SHORT WAVE TROUGHS OF LOW  
PRESSURE ROTATING AROUND THE BASE OF THE UPPER TROUGH WILL CONTINUE  
TO HELP PROVIDE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, MORE NUMEROUS OVER THE  
MORE SOUTHERN ZONES AS THE BOUNDARY SINKS SOUTH. WE MAY SEE A BRIEF  
PERIOD OF NO PRECIPITATION THURSDAY NIGHT AS THE TROUGH AXIS PROVIDE  
DRY AIR ALONG WITH THE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM IN WAKE OF THE  
FRONT. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER IN WAKE OF THE FRONTAL PASSAGE.  
E HE ON MAY CAN BE EXPECTED ON WEDNESDAY. RAIN WILL BE RETURNING BY  
FRIDAY AS THE WESTERN END OF THE FRONT LIFTS BACK NORTHEAST AS A  
WARM FRONT INTO THE WEEKEND. OUR AREA WILL BE IN A SHEAR AXIS ALOFT  
BETWEEN THE BROAD TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE CENTRAL CONUS AND  
A FLAT RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST STATES AND THE  
NORTHEAST GULF. THE RIDGE BUILDS WEST ACROSS THE WESTERNS GULF  
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND WILL CONTINUE TO HELP WITH MAINLY DAYTIME  
AND EARLY EVENING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. FOR THE LATE WEEK AND  
THROUGH THE WEEKEND THE DAYTIME HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL GRADUALLY  
RETURN TO NEAR NORMAL. /06/
