By: Martha Spencer

.SHORT TERM (TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY)...THE COMBINATION OF A
BUILDING UPPER RIDGE AND A DRY MID/UPPER SLUG OF AIR WILL LEAD TO
HOT TEMPERATURES AND BELOW NORMAL POPS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
THE RIDGE ACROSS THE REGION WILL BUILD THROUGH MID-WEEK AS THE
EXISTING RIDGE CENTERS OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND WESTERN ATLANTIC
MERGE OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES. ALL-THE-WHILE...THE DRYING TREND
THAT INITIATED SUNDAY WILL CONTINUE AS AN UPPER LOW OVER THE
SOUTHERN GULF HELPS DRAG THE DRY AIR TO THE EAST ACROSS THE AREA.
00Z SOUNDINGS SHOWED THE PROGRESSION QUITE WELL. THE PWAT AT KTLH
WAS 1.8 INCHES VERSUS 2.1 INCHES FROM 24 HOURS AGO. KJAX PWAT
DROPPED TO 1.2 INCHES AT 00Z...DOWN FROM 1.7 INCHES 24 HOURS AGO.

THEREFORE...WILL LIKELY SEE TYPE 3 SEABREEZE DAYS TODAY AND TUESDAY
IN TERMS OF DISTRIBUTION...BUT COVERAGE WILL BE WELL BELOW CLIMO.
THE SOUTHEAST LOW LEVEL FLOW WILL INCREASE SOME BY WEDNESDAY...BUT
THE DRY AIR WILL BE MAINTAINED...KEEPING THE FORECAST RELATIVELY
DRY. MID AND UPPER 90S CAN BE EXPECTED EACH OF THE NEXT THREE
AFTERNOONS.
