      Yay! I changed some things to try and combat our spam issue, but it didn’t work, so here we are back to normal.

      .SHORT TERM...
      Short wave on schedule this morning and is dropping out of
      Arkansas as of 0300 this morning. This feature is what is to be
      responsible for any sh/ts that develop over the area today. The
      main area of focus should be the northern half of the area without
      coastal Mississippi. Sounding profiles show pw values around .75"
      wbz heights around 7k` and MUcape of around 215 J/kg. To sum this
      up, any vertical motion strong enough to cause a sh/ts would be
      dynamic lift. Even then, the moisture profile does not support
      rainfall development by heated buoyant convective processes. But
      dynamic lift would cause enough instability and use what ever
      moisture that would be available to produce isolated sh/ts. With
      these parameters strongly starved, we should only observe a few low
      topped sh/ts with the ability to produce hail which should remain
      small enough to not cause any problems.
      
      A slow filtering of dry air looks to move through on Sunday
      from the east. But return flow from the gulf will start late
      Monday. Some sh/ts should make a return to at least the eastern
      third of the area by Tuesday. This isolated to low scattered
      activity will spread westward through the end of the week as
      another cold front approaches the area.

      .SOUNDING DISCUSSION...
      12z LIX profile this morning is similar to yesterday - dry and
      stable with precipitable water at 0.65" and a positive lifted
      index. Temperatures in layer from 950mb-850mb are about 3C/5F
      degrees warmer than yesterday morning, so the forecast highs 
      should be somewhat warmer in many locations. Low level winds
      have veered to mostly northeast while mid to upper level winds
      were mainly westerly with a peak wind of 70 knots observed at 
      12.8km/42kft.

      Loving the warmer temperatures! I planted a ton of new crape myrtle trees this spring and I’m ready to see them get established and take off. Just have to water them often this week since it looks to be a dry one.

      Could be a slight chance of rain on Saturday but it’s not looking like much at the moment.

      Get ready because it looks like the heat could be on as we move into the second half of the month.
