AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

.UPDATE...

UPDATE TO ADJUST HIGH TEMPERATURES AND THE PROBABILITY OF
PRECIPITATION THIS AFTERNOON. THE 30/18Z AVIATION DISCUSSION IS
ALSO INCLUDED.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

THUNDERSTORMS HAVE MOVED OUT OF THE AREA LATE THIS MORNING WITH
CLOUD COVER AND A FAIRLY STABLE ATMOSPHERE IN IT/S WAKE.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLOW TO WARM DUE TO CLOUD COVER...BUT ALSO DUE
TO THE SWATH OF RAINFALL TOTALING ANYWHERE FROM ONE HALF TO THREE
INCHES FROM THE WESTERN LOW ROLLING PLAINS...SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE
CENTRAL PERMIAN BASIN.  THEREFORE...HAVE DECIDED TO LOWER
HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON A LITTLE FURTHER IN THESE LOCATIONS.
TEMPERATURES WILL STILL RISE TO NEAR NORMAL LEVELS FROM THE PRESIDIO
VALLEY...EASTWARD ACROSS THE BIG BEND REGION AND LOWER TRANS PECOS.
SINCE UPSLOPE FLOW AND SURFACE DEWPOINTS IN THE 50S WILL EXIST
THROUGH MAX HEATING...WE MAY SEE WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
DEVELOP.  GUSTY WINDS AND BRIEF HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH
THE STRONGER STORMS.

&&

.AVIATION...

MID AND HIGH CLOUDS COVER MUCH OF SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO AND WEST
TEXAS LATE THIS MORNING...BUT SHOULD BE ON THE DECREASE THIS
AFTERNOON. REGARDLESS...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH
TONIGHT. FOG MAY DEVELOP AT KMAF LATE TONIGHT...BUT WILL NOT
INCLUDE ANY MENTION AT THIS TIME DUE TO THE LOW PROBABILITY.

&&

.MAF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
NM...NONE.
TX...NONE.
