.DISCUSSION... THE FOUR STATE REGION WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A
TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE ALOFT THAT EXTENDED SOUTH ACROSS THE
REGION WITH AN INVERTED TROUGH ALOFT REACHING FROM SOUTH TEXAS
NORTHEAST INTO PARTS OF EAST TEXAS AND NORTH LOUISIANA. A RIDGE
OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WAS CENTERED JUST SOUTHWEST OF THE FOUR
CORNERS REGION WHILE ANOTHER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WAS
OVER NORTHERN FLORIDA AND THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO AND INTO THE
SOUTHWEST ATLANTIC COAST OFF NORTH FLORIDA AND GEORGIA. THIS
PATTERN WILL FAVOR SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DURING THE
LATE AFTERNOON AND INTO THE EVENING. DURING THE DAY SATURDAY THE
UPPER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER FLORIDA AND THE EASTERN GULF
REFORMS WEST ACROSS THE GULF AND SHOULD HELP LESSEN THE CHANCE
FOR CONVECTION INTO THE WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM UP AND
HEAT WILL RETURN WITH LESS CLOUD COVER. FOR THE NEXT WORK WEEK
THE UPPER RIDGE WILL BE OVERHEAD KEEPING A WARMING TREND FOR THE
FIRE DISTRICTS WITH LITTLE TO NO RAIN AND CLIMBING HEAT INDEX
VALUES.
