Another day of pleasant conditions were in place this afternoon with 
surface high pressure in control. With high pressure around through 
the weekend, tranquil weather with below normal temperatures will 
continue tonight into Sunday. Weak isentropic ascent coupled with a 
series of weak shortwaves embedded in the upper trough will result 
in chances for shallow elevated convection beginning Monday morning 
lasting through Monday evening. Weak instability gradually increases 
during the day on Monday, but no hazardous weather is expected 
outside a few lightning strikes. With the additional cloud cover and 
scattered precipitation, highs on Monday may be a few degrees cooler 
in the middle 70s, nearly 10 degrees below normal. Lee trough forms 
across the High Plains Tuesday into Wednesday, returning southerly 
winds and moisture back into the region, with moderating 
temperatures. 

A more active period is anticipated mid-week into the weekend. The 
last few iterations of model runs have suggested a parade of 
stronger shortwave troughs in advance of a larger western trough. 
With increasing upper ascent and a return of deeper moisture, 
conditions will become more conducive for thunderstorm chances. 
There remains modest model spread regarding timing of the waves, but 
general theme will be to anticipate chances for thunderstorms each 
period Wednesday into next weekend.
