.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 253 PM CDT MON JUN 20 2016/

DISCUSSION...As of 2:45 PM CDT...skies are mainly partly to
mostly cloudy. Radar is indc a few light showers just northeast
of Boquillas Canyon...otherwise it is dry across the area.

Fairly benign weather is in store for the short term across the
CWA. Ridge centered over the Rockies into the Central Plains is
continuing the deep layer easterly flow over the CWA. This will
bring dry weather with near to slightly above normal temps.

The ridge will sink south bringing hotter temps for the end of the
week...but temps should stay below Advisory levels. An inverted
trof will move west from the Gulf of Mexico under the ridge. This
could bring a few storms to the southern and western mountains the
end of the week into the beginning of the weekend...but it only
looks like a slight chance at best. There could be some convectionin
the Plains on Sunday as the inverted trof edges northwest...but it
is too early to get excited about that yet.
