Previous discussion... /issued 256 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015/ 


Discussion... 
lack of clouds today have helped boost a lot of inland temperatures 
into the middle to upper 90s as of 2 PM. With several more hours of heating 
left...would not be surprised if we reach 100 degrees or more at some 
spots. Heat index values look like they are peaking in the 102 to 107 
range thanks mostly to lowering dew points. Only a shower or two has 
developed so far under strong subsidence...but we have a couple more 
hours of heating to get some isolated showers/thunderstorms to develop. 
Little change is anticipated over the next several days as it appears 
that upper level ridging to our north then northwest should keep rain 
chances on the very low side. Maybe on Thursday and Friday we could 
see a little better shower/thunderstorm coverage (still carrying 20% 
to 30% pops) as a developing northwest flow aloft allows a weak cold 
front to edge into the area and possibly become a focus as precipitable 
water values rise upward towards two inches. Models are eventually bringing 
some drier air (lowering dew points) into the area behind the front...and 
this should help to keep heat index values under heat advisory levels 
(>108 degrees) even though some actual temperatures could end up at 
or above 100 degrees for a couple days in a row. 42 


Marine... 


Onshore flow is expected to persist overnight /increasing slightly 
on either side of midnight/ with more of a light and variable flow 
becoming established Wednesday as a surface high slides across the 
waters. An approaching weak cold front will near the coastal waters 
late Thursday into Friday... increasing shower and thunderstorm 
chances as this happens and allowing winds to become more westerly. 
Rain chances are expected to linger into the weekend and diminish at 
the beginning of next week.
