.SHORT TERM.../Monday through Tuesday/

A range of 40s for most locales, but as expected we have cooler 
upper 30s in parts of the Hwy 82 corridor and still falling with a
little room until saturation. Frost not enough to forecast with
cirrus increasing between now and daybreak at 7:24 a.m. Patchy 
fog is isolated to DeQueen at this time, but more may develop with
calm winds areawide. The cirrus is overspreading all of the area,
but is much thicker in E TX where they initially rolled in SW 
flow aloft. Even some middeck with showers to our West, but with 
dry air in place a sprinkle or two may occur and deserves no 
mention with high pressure still well in control of our weather 

Right off the surface winds are still NE up to 2kft at 15-20KT. We
will see E/NE around 5KT most of the this term. Far less wind than
the 35-40KT we saw this time yesterday. So little if any CCA 
today with temps as warm as Sunday despite the cooler start and 
the cirrus. Sunshine will filter through and guidance is right in 
the ball park. 

The 1028mb high is over VA/NC and will drift E allowing for the 
warm up back to normal to continue into Tuesday. A coastal low 
will swing by to our South and really beef up the clouds with a 
chance for some rainfall in our far southern tier of Co/Pa. A 
tenth of inch or less may occur late tomorrow night into early 
Tuesday with more to come midweek with a stronger and more 
Northerly approaching system from the West. /24/

.LONG TERM.../Tuesday night through Monday/ 

Upper ridge across the middle of the country will begin to shift 
east as sfc low inches to the ne along the se TX coastline. A few 
showers skirting area to the south will begin to surge from East TX 
into surrounding portions of area on Wed Aftn and then become more 
widespread areawide Wed night as shortwave moves across TX into cwa. 
NE winds due to position of coastal low and abundant mid lvls
clouds in place prior to shower development will limit 
instability and will not consider tstm development as much of an 
issue with daytime temps remaining mostly in the 60s. Rain chances
will begin to diminish from the west starting around midday 

Much drier nw flow aloft end of week and following wknd. Saturday 
warmest day just in advance of a front embedded in nw flow. Isold 
showers possible across the northeast half of the area in limited 
moisture but decent elevated instability as colder mid lvl temps in 
wake of front. Otherwise, mostly seasonal temps expected through the 
weekend. /07/
