.DISCUSSION...
A LARGE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT STRETCHING FROM OKLAHOMA
ACROSS THE TEXAS PANHANDLE AND NEW MEXICO WILL BRING HOT AND
MOSTLY DRY WEATHER TO THE REGION TODAY AND SUNDAY. THERE WILL
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON INTO EARLY TONIGHT IN
THE GILA REGION AND THE BOOTHEEL...ESPECIALLY NEAR THE ARIZONA
BORDER...AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF STORMS IN THE SACRAMENTO MTNS.
TEMPERATURES 4 TO 8 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL EACH AFTERNOON WITH
MINIMUM HUMIDITY IN THE MID TEENS TO MID 20S LOWLANDS AND 25
TO 35 PERCENT IN THE BOOTHEEL AND OVER AREA MOUNTAINS. THAT
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL WEAKEN AND SHIFT SLOWLY NORTH MONDAY
AND TUESDAY. THIS WILL ALLOW A SLIGHT INCREASE IN MOISTURE AND
THE CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS OVER MOST OF THE AREA THE FIRST
HALF OF NEXT WEEK.
