By: NWS

THE STRONG SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OVER THE AREA WILL CONTINUE TO PROMOTE MORE SUMMER-LIKE WEATHER OVER THE CWA THROUGH THE NEAR TERM. A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL MAKE ITS WAY INTO THE CWA SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY. ALL RELIABLE COMPUTER MODELS ARE FORECASTING THE FRONT WILL STALL JUST NORTH OF THE AREA SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY. MEANWHILE...THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WILL BE NUDGED SOUTH AND EASTWARD BY THE APPROACHING FRONT. CLOUD COVER AND CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE FRONT SHOULD LIMIT THE EXTENT OF SURFACE HEATING AND PROVIDE SOME RELIEF FROM THE NEAR RECORD HIGHS WE HAVE SEEN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. POPS ARE CONSISTENT WITH RECENT MAV RUN AND INDICATE A FAIRLY ACTIVE WEEKEND IN TERMS OF PRECIPITATION. RAIN CHANCES WILL BE ON THE RISE TONIGHT DECREASING FROM WEST TO EAST AHEAD OF THE AFOREMENTIONED FRONTAL BOUNDARY CURRENTLY LOCATED OVER THE LOWER MS VALLEY. AS THE FRONT MOVES INTO THE AREA...EXPECT HIGH TEMPS TO DECREASE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS WITH DEWPOINTS REMAINING RELATIVELY HIGH. THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO STALL NORTH OF THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY WHERE IT MAY BEGIN TO WASH OUT...THUS POPS ARE LOWER TOWARD THE END OF THE PERIOD TO REFLECT A WEAKENING TREND.
