LONG TERM (WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY)...THE MAIN CONCERN
DURING THE EXTENDED PERIOD WILL BE THE CONTINUED ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES AND HIGH HEAT INDICES. A LARGE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE IS
LIKELY TO BE CENTERED OVER THE LOWER MS VALLEY WITH THE RIDGE AXIS
EXTENDING INTO THE SOUTHEAST U.S. THIS WILL PROVIDE ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES INTO THE MID TO UPPER 90S DURING EACH AFTERNOON AND
WHEN COMBINED WITH ABUNDANT LOW LEVEL MOISTURE...HEAT INDICES ARE
FORECAST TO BE IN THE 105 TO 110 RANGE OVER A WIDE AREA. THERE IS
A CHANCE THAT THE LOCAL HEAT ADVISORY CRITERIA OF 110 OR HIGHER
HEAT INDICES COULD BE REACHED IN SOME AREAS FOR ONE OR MORE
AFTERNOONS DURING THE EXTENDED PERIOD. WITH THE SUPPRESSING NATURE
OF THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE...POPS WILL BE AT OR BELOW NORMAL DURING
THIS PERIOD...ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY HIGHER CHANCES FOR AFTERNOON
CONVECTION COULD RETURN TO THE PICTURE BY NEXT WEEKEND WITH A
SLIGHT INCREASE IN MID LEVEL MOISTURE.
