Previous discussion... /issued 1022 am CDT Fri Sep 22 2017/

fall officially begins later this afternoon...but it wont
feel fall like as temperatures reach the lower 90s in most
locations once again. Area 12z soundings a little cooler than
those of 24 hours ago...and current trends/forecasted high
temperatures reflect this. Remaining elements are in good shape as at this time no update is planned.

Warm and humid conditions to continue through the weekend. Rain
chances will begin to increase by the start of the next work week
as a cold front approaches. Behind the front...considerably cooler
temperatures will begin to filter into the area on Tuesday.
