Previous discussion... /issued 212 PM CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014/

Due to a weak surface low in the Gulf...chances of rain will
continue on for the rest of the week. Main areas of rain chances
are along the coast and rain chances inland increase Thursday and
Friday as moisture levels deepen. Still think northern counties
will have less chance of rain than central and coastal counties.
Where it does rain... 1 to 2 inches is not out of the question if
training set ups. With the increased cloud coverage and expected
rain... temperatures will not feel as hot as last week. Toward the end of
the Holiday weekend and into Labor Day...weak upper level ridging
begins to build in across the area which should bring lower rain
chances and higher temperatures. Although we're expecting it to warm up
next week...temperatures wont get close to record highs. We continue to
monitor the Gulf for any tropical development. 42/99
