.DISCUSSION... AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED
OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS EXTENDS EASTWARD INTO THE MID SOUTH.
THIS SHOULD AGAIN SUPPORT MAINLY DRY AND HOT CONDITIONS OVER MUCH
OF THE AREA TODAY. THERE MAY BE AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM ACROSS
AREAS EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING...BUT MOST LOCATIONS WILL REMAIN RAIN FREE TODAY. THE
COMBINATION OF TEMPERATURES IN THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 90S AND HUMID
CONDITIONS WILL SUPPORT HEAT INDEX VALUES ABOVE 105 DEGREES THIS
AFTERNOON...THEREFORE A HEAT ADVISORY WILL REMAIN OVER THE ENTIRE
MID SOUTH TODAY. THE UPPER RIDGE SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN ON
WEDNESDAY WHICH SHOULD ALLOW A COLD FRONT TO APPROACH FROM THE
NORTH. HOT AND HUMID WEATHER SHOULD CONTINUE AHEAD OF THE FRONT
FOR MUCH OF THE DAY. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD
DEVELOP ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON
INTO THURSDAY AS IT SLOWLY MOVES ACROSS THE AREA. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL REBUILD INTO THE REGION FOR THE END OF THE WEEK INTO THE
WEEKEND WITH SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES AND LESS HUMID
CONDITIONS. DRY WEATHER WILL ALSO PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
