302 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015

Short term (tonight through Wednesday night)...
upper ridge will continue to dominate through the short range with
basically a persistence forecast of all weather elements. Does
not look like there will be as much low level moisture as last
night so do not expect stratus to be as widespread or persistent
but still expect some low clouds to form late. Heat index values
will once again be in the 105-109 range on Wednesday and will
issue an updated Special Weather Statement to highlight.

&&

Long term (thursday through tuesday)...
still a bit of a pattern change in store for the end of the week
into the weekend. 500 mb ridge shifts over The Rockies allowing some
deeper moisture to build west across the area. Deepest moisture and thus
highest rain chances over eastern sections tapering to the west.
Will hold probability of precipitation at 30 percent or lower. More cloudiness and scattered precipitation
will also keep temperatures a few degrees cooler than past days. The
pattern change looks short lived however as ridging builds back in Erly
next week with more hot and dry weather in store.
