DISCUSSION...

WV imagery shows the upper ridge extending across the srn CONUS, and
forecast to move very little over the next week.  However, an upper
trough/TUTT churning SW of Laredo may bring a little relief to West
Texas and Southeast New Mexico in the short term.  This feature is
forecast to curve northward over the next 24 hours, and enter the
Big Bend Area by Saturday afternoon.  It is then forecast to move
north thru the Permian Basin and then back towards central Texas
next week.  This should generally promote an increase in cloud
cover, and keep temperatures near normal into next week.  Best
precip chances should be on the eastern side of the trough,
especially Sunday/Sunday night, but equally decent chances will
remain over the western mtns in upslope flow each day.  However,
these upper troughs can be disappointing, so we`ll keep POPs at a
chance at best attm.

Otherwise, the upper ridge will center over the Gulf Coast states
for the first part of the forecast, then shift back to the Four
Corners next week w/the demise of the upper trough.  This will allow
for a warming trend in the extended, back to above-normal by
midweek.
