409 PM CDT Monday Jun 1 2015

Discussion...quiet weather is ongoing across the region. Some
shower activity has been associated with a front draped across the
region but there has yet to be lightning with this given the drier
airmass in place and lower afternoon temperatures suppressing
convection. This dry trend will continue through much of the week as
the upper trough will move east of US and the region will remain
under ridging aloft. A front tries to drop south into the area on
Monday into Tuesday and may bring some showers to the northern part
of the County Warning Area. Overall...quiet weather is expected through this week
into the middle portion of next week. Temperatures will reach into
the upper 80s and lower 90s by weeks end. /28/
