DISCUSSION...

Much calmer conditions this afternoon when compared to yesterday as
high pressure has settled in across the Lone Star state. We
started off very chilly this morning with Marfa dropping down to
30 degrees. Expect a very similar forecast for low temperatures
come Wednesday morning with little change in the sfc pattern. An
upper ridge currently to our west will build over the area
tomorrow and flatten out as we head toward the end of the week.
This will keep the area dry and bring much warmer conditions with
temperatures peaking near record highs on Thursday.

A weak, backdoor cold front will make its way through the area
Friday. This will help cool temperatures down a few degrees, but we
will still remain above normal through the upcoming weekend. Models
continue to disagree in the extended with regards to the UA
pattern. It appears a large upper trough will develop over the Great
Lakes while another one moves onto the West Coast. The models have
different ideas about the eastward progression of the western trough
which will definitely affect our weather going into next week. Have
not included any rain chances attm, but changes will likely be made
to the extended forecast in the coming days.
