.DISCUSSION...

We are looking at continued hot and dry conditions through the
weekend. The upper ridge has started to shift off to the west, but
our region will remain under its influence. High temperatures will
reach near 100 most areas this weekend with mid 90`s in the
mountains. Most of the area will remain dry with an isolated storm
possible late Sunday afternoon.

Thicknesses begin to lower by Monday as the ridge continues to move
west and an inverted trough moves east into Texas. Increasing
moisture will help temperatures cool back toward normal. Rain
chances will increase much of next week as a moist, theta-e axis
develops over the area. Right now we are mostly looking at scattered
convection, but this is the best chance of rain we have seen for
several weeks.
