Area forecast discussion

Discussion...
upper wave..shown nicely on visible satellite centered
over eastern Utah and western Colorado will be primary
concern for the next couple of days.

Another mild night tonight...and hot on Thursday before
upper wave impacts our region. Upper wave brings precipitation
chances late Thursday... and especially Friday as h500
energy combines with ample 1.50-1.75 precipitable water.
Raised probability of precipitation for Friday from previous forecast and would
not be surprised if raised more in later forecasts.

Models only tease forecast area with an chance for cool
front far northeast OK Monday.

Southern end of a broad wave rotating from the coast of
British Columbia into the Canadian prairie early next
week to keep precipitation chances through about middle week...
especially northern areas...closer to frontal boundary
parked north of our region.
