MONDAY   A/C/E/    535  PM CDT   26  JULY  2010


The late afternoon radar   http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/full.php        is finally showing significant activity across the Delta and portions of the southeast states. There are numerous clusters of showers and thunderstorms across central MO 60% coverage... central and northern ARK (65% coverage) ... over central and eastern TX (50% coverage) and over eastern TN far northeast AL and far northwest GA into SC....60% coverage of those areas. ALL of OK KS NEB SD ND eastern MT eastern WY eastern COL and the Midwesr regions are Dry.

Any Late Day  Model  changes?  (12z   European   comes out at   115 pm CDT...  Euro  Ensembles   330pm  CDT ...  18z  GFS   5PM  CDT)

The 12z Monday European model continues to argue against any sort of ridge or dome trying to build back into the Midwest or the plains in any way in the 6-10 day and or the 11-15 day. By day 6 the Dome over the Southeast states has moved back to the central Lower Plains... and by day 9-10 the Dome is located over

COL UT NM and western TX. Over the eastern half of the the Conus in the 6-10 day there are 2 cold fronts that sweep through the Midwest and off the East coast . This trough in the Jet stream means strong cold fronts at the surface.... so again the 12z euor shows NO heat threat of any kind.
