PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 315 AM CDT WED AUG 26 2015/

Looks like a couple of quiet weather days through Thursday as an
upper level ridge of high pressure dominates. The possible
exception will be the Guadalupe and or Davis Mountains during the
afternoon and evenings due to upslope flow amidst intense heating
of the elevated surfaces. High temperatures will continue to be
above normal this afternoon and Thursday afternoon.

For Friday a weak boundary is forecast to track southeast from
New Mexico and stall near a Snyder to Midland to Valentine line
by Friday night. Isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms look
possible northwest of this line Friday afternoon and Friday night
where cooler air aloft will reside. Any Activity does not look to
be very expansive with an upper ridge in the vicinity. Temperatures
should remain well above normal Friday.

Saturday and Sunday look mainly quiet again as the boundary
weakens. There still could be some isolated diurnal storms
in and near the mountains with marginally unstable upslope flow
in place.

Next Monday through Wednesday looks dry due to the forecast area
residing on the western subsident side of a weak western moving
upper level disturbance from south Texas. Temperatures early
next week are expected to be slightly above normal.
