.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 340 AM CDT WED JUN 22 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Not much change to the previous forecast with fairly uneventful
weather expect the next several days. We will remain under the
influence of a broad upper ridge through Friday, with thunderstorm
chances generally confined to the higher terrain regions. Slightly
drier air at the surface and 850mb thermal ridge will edge east
today, resulting in high temperatures near or above 100 across much
of SE NM and the Trans Pecos. Much of the same can be expected
Thursday then a few degrees cooler Friday through the weekend.

Models continue to show an easterly wave heading NW out of Mexico
toward west Texas this weekend, splitting the upper ridge to the
east and west of the forecast area. This way could potentially
bringing rain chances back to southern portions of the CWA Sunday
and Monday. Meanwhile, a weak shortwave moving south through eastern
NM may generate some convection that could move south into northwest
zones Sunday night. Otherwise, cooler high temperatures expected
Sunday through the beginning of next work week with highs in the low
to mid 90s.
