SHORT TERM. /Issued 1259 PM CDT Fri Aug 7 2020/ /Through Saturday/

The next 30 hours will continue to see hot and dry conditions. Upper-level analysis shows a stout ridge stretched across the Sun Belt region from southern Arizona to the Southeast. Strong subsidence associated with this ridge will keep rain chances near zero and hot weather in the forecast. At the surface, a deepening low is noted along the Montana/Saskatchewan border, with a lee- side trough extending from this low southward across the High Plains. This deepening low is helping to produce some slightly enhanced southerly winds this afternoon. Most sites are reporting sustained winds of 10-15 MPH, with a few locations reporting wind gusts to around 20 MPH. These winds should diminish a little after sunset, but expect breezy conditions to continue through the short-term period. Saturday will be a near repeat of Friday.

The main concern on the hazardous weather front will be for fire weather concerns. While we should remain well below any red flag conditions, relative humidity values will likely drop below 30 percent during the afternoon hours west of I-35 and could fall as low as 20 percent for some areas west of US-287. With slightly elevated southerly winds, this could allow any initial attack fires to grow, especially anywhere that dry, fine fuels are abundant. Please exercise caution, and be aware of any burn bans that may be in effect for your county.

LONG TERM. /NEW/ /Sunday Onward/

The extended forecast is mostly hot and dry with the exception of some low rain chances across our east and southeast towards the middle of next week.

The upper ridge will remain in control through the remainder of the weekend and into early next week. As a result, rain chances will be near zero during this time frame, while dewpoints mix out mainly into the 60s each afternoon. Even though highs will be in the 95-102 range, humidity should be just low enough such that heat indices will remain below advisory levels for the next several days, although an isolated spot or two could see a heat index as high as 107 by Monday or Tuesday. One of the main stories will continue to be essentially daily elevated fire danger as RH values fall to around 30% with a steady south breeze. Fuels are dry and cured and will allow for quick growth of wildfires with these conditions in place.

We'll have some low rain chances returning by the middle of the week, mainly in the form of seabreeze activity making its way northwestward from the Gulf. At this time, it appears the highest chances for any of this convection to make it into our southeastern zones would be on Wednesday and Thursday as low-level flow backs more southeasterly while increasing to 15-20 kts. Earlier in the week, it appears the low-level flow may be too weak to support sufficient inland progression of this activity. Have included 20-30% chances across our southeast during the afternoon hours on both days.

The other source of our rain chances will be some decaying convection approaching the Red River in Oklahoma from shortwaves passing well to our north. These disturbances will gradually erode the ridge by the middle and end of the week, as the high pressure center retreats westward to the Desert Southwest. This will eventually place us in weak northwesterly flow aloft, and may allow better rain chances to arrive closer to next weekend. However, much uncertainty remains in the possibility of this subtle pattern shift.

AVIATION. /Issued 1259 PM CDT Fri Aug 7 2020/ /18Z TAFs/

VFR and south flow will prevail through the forecast period. South winds of 10-15 KT are expected this afternoon, with a few gusts to near 20 KT. Winds will diminish a bit after 06Z, increasing to 10-15 KT once again after 12Z. Besides a few CU around 7 kft, little cloud cover is forecast.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
