Near Term - Through Today
Persistent upper low over Arkansas continues to creep eastward. However, it should open up into a wave later today before making more substantial progress on Friday. Ahead of the upper low, deep southwesterly flow remains in place across the forecast area. However, a swath of drier low/mid-level air is pushing into the western zones this morning. This may limit storm coverage a bit today, especially west of the river, but the storms that do form will have the potential to produce some strong winds. 12Z KTAE sounding does show some reasonable downdraft potential and lapse rates are expected to steepen a bit during the day. This supports the Marginal Risk area outlined by SPC. No significant changes to the forecast today, with just some minor tweaks to the Probability of Precipitation to account for low-topped showers that have recently begun to develop.

.SHORT TERM [Friday through Saturday]... The axis of the upper trough will remain to our west through Friday night with deep southwesterly flow bringing abundant moisture into our area and keeping elevated rain chances in the forecast. As the upper trough slides across the Tri-state region on Saturday, rain will begin to taper off from west to east. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90 but with the high daytime relative humidity, heat indices will be as high as the mid to upper 90s mainly across the Florida zones. The low Friday night will be around 70.

Long Term - Saturday Night Through Thursday
After the passage of the upper trough, drier conditions will return on Sunday. With the possible exception of a few isolated showers or thunderstorms developing along the sea breeze each day, no rain is in the forecast at least through the middle of next week. Temperatures will remain seasonably warm through the period, with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s each afternoon.
