PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 330 AM CDT MON JUL 18 2016/

DISCUSSION...

The subtropical ridge will remain centered just north of the region
through the coming week, and keep rain chances to a minimum.
Easterly flow will prevail over the forecast area which will trim a
few degrees off highs for a couple of days.  However, the upper
ridge will expand back over the area somewhat by late this week
before transitioning to the southwest ConUS next weekend.  High
temperatures around the century mark over the Trans Pecos and Rio
Grande will expand over more locations as a result.  The better news
is, the upper ridge may move far enough west by late next weekend/
early next week to allow better rain chances back in the forecast.
