Detailed Summary:

Heavy rainfall will be the main weather hazard over the CONUS and Alaska during the medium range
period (Sunday, August 21st - Thursday, August 25th). Shortwave energy responsible for heavy rain
and flash flooding in the Southwest this weekend will turn east and drive significant weather over
the Southern Plains and Middle/Lower Mississippi Valley beginning Saturday night. The latest
guidance has trended slightly slower with better agreement between the GFS and Euro on placement of
the axis of heaviest precipitation. Heavy rain will spread from eastern New Mexico across northern
Texas/central Oklahoma on Sunday and to the ArkLaTex on Monday. The latest guidance, save for the
00z Euro ensemble mean, has the heaviest rainfall retrograding backward into central Texas on
Tuesday as the surface low settles over north-central Texas and attendant fronts stall out across
the Deep South. The heavy rainfall signal begins to weaken by next Wednesday as an upper ridge
expands into the Southern Plains from the West.

Temperatures in the Pacific Northwest will begin to rise above normal late next week as the
aforementioned upper-level ridge builds over the region. The 06 & 12z GFS indicated the chance for
heavy rainfall to impact western Pennsylvania on Sunday as a low pressure system crosses the
Midwest/Ohio Valley. Western Pennsylvania is particularly sensitive to heavy rain, but a hazard
area was not added due to the lack of agreement on timing and intensity of qpf in the other

. . .Alaska. . .

A slow moving Aleutian low pressure system will spread moisture along the southern Gulf coast this
weekend into next week. Heavy rainfall will impact portions of the southern Kenai into the norhtern
panhandle on Monday and Wednesday.
