.DISCUSSION...

TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S THIS MORNING WITH A LITTLE BIT OF PATCHY
FOG ACROSS THE NORTH. A WEAK FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH TODAY BUT
NONE OF THE MODELS ARE PICKING UP PRECIPITATION AS IT LOOKS TOO
DRY TO SQUEEZE OUT ANY RAIN AND NO CONVERGENCE ALONG THE BOUNDARY.
SHOULD WARM UP NICELY TODAY WITH HIGHS MAINLY IN THE 80S...A FEW
70S FAR NORTH.

TROUGH OVER THE WESTERN CONUS WILL BE THE NEXT SYSTEM TO DEAL
WITH. UPPER LOW WILL CLOSE OFF OVER NEW MEXICO AND HEAD EASTWARD
ON MONDAY WITH RAIN ARRIVING AS EARLY AS TUESDAY MORNING FOR OUR
SOUTHWESTERN COUNTIES. THE LOWER LATITUDE TRACK WILL KEEP THE
MAJORITY OF STORMS ALONG/NEAR THE GULF COAST. INVERTED SURFACE
TROUGH WILL PASS THROUGH ALABAMA TUESDAY NIGHT WITH SHOWERS
LIKELY. RAIN/SHOWERS WILL COME TO AN END THE SECOND HALF OF
WEDNESDAY WITH DRY CONDITIONS THURSDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

TEMPERATURES RUNNING A LITTLE BELOW AVERAGE MONDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY WITH NEAR AVERAGE NUMBERS BY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.
