.DISCUSSION...
PATCHY DRIZZLE CONTINUES THIS MORNING ALONG AND SOUTH OF
INTERSTATE 20 WHILE CLOUDS BEGIN TO LIFT ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS.
AT THE SURFACE...LOW PRESSURE IS CENTERED NEAR KLFT...AND ALOFT...
THE ASSOCIATED TROUGH EXTENDS FROM THE GREAT LAKES TO THE LOWER
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. THIS SYSTEM WILL BE SLOW TO MOVE EAST...WITH
THE SURFACE COLD FRONT STALLING ACROSS SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA UNTIL
AT LEAST SUNDAY NIGHT. AFTER THIS...DRIER AIR WILL BEGIN MOVE
INTO THE REGION AS A RIDGE OVER THE THE WESTERN U.S. MOVES EAST OF
THE ROCKIES. WILL KEEP A CHANCE OF RAIN FOR TODAY AND SUNDAY SOUTH
AND EAST OF A KELD TO KLFK LINE. THEN AFTER SUNDAY...WILL DROP
MENTION MOST AREAS...EXCEPT FOR A SMALL CHANCE OF RAIN SOUTHEAST
THROUGH TUESDAY...WHEN THE UPPER TROUGH FINALLY CLEARS THIS REGION.

DUE TO THE CLOUDS AND RAIN ALONG WITH NORTH TO NORTHEAST SURFACE
WIND MOST AREAS...EXPECT BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO CONTINUE
THROUGH THIS WEEKEND. HAVE BASED TODAYS HIGHS MAINLY ON CLOUD COVER...
SO THE WARMEST TEMPS WILL LIKELY BE ALONG AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 30.
BY EARLY NEXT WEEK...TEMPERATURES WILL RETURN TO NEAR NORMAL WITH MORE
SUNSHINE EXPECTED. MODELS CONTINUE TO HOLD THE RIDGE WELL WEST OF
THE AREA THROUGH THE SEVEN DAY FORECAST PERIOD...SO DO NOT SEE ANY
UPPER 90S AT THIS TIME. THE NEXT CHANCE OF PRECIP MAY COME THURSDAY
WITH A WEAK SHORT WAVE MOVING AROUND THE EASTERN PERIPHERY OF THE
RIDGE. /14/
