DISCUSSION...

An upper ridge along with sfc high pressure will continue to bring
warm and dry conditions to the region. Cool temperatures at night
will transition to very warm afternoons. A sfc trough will develop
over the TX Panhandle tomorrow inducing downsloping, southwesterly
winds across the area. This will give temperatures a boost to near
record territory. The record high for Oct 16th for Midland Intl is
92 degrees set in 2003. The current forecast keeps temperatures
near 90 across the Permian Basin with mid 90`s possible in the Trans
Pecos region.

Meanwhile, an upper trough will dig into the Great Lakes Region
helping to send a weak, backdoor cold front into the area Friday
morning. Temperatures are expected to cool a few degrees, but still
remain above normal into the weekend. Attention then turns to a
trough expected to dig along the West Coast this weekend. This
trough is expected to weaken as it makes its way across northern
Mexico, but should help to increase rain chances over our area. PoPs
have been increased for the beginning of next week and temps have
been lowered slightly given the extra cloud cover.
