.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 226 PM CDT FRI JUL 1 2016/

DISCUSSION...
We are getting to the summer doldrums which means high pressure
is the dominant weather feature. All models are showing an upper
high either overhead or very close by giving us hot and mostly dry
weather with the exception of a few storms mainly over the Davis
and Guadalupe Mountains.

Light west winds in the mid levels will start the warming trend
tomorrow but the heat really begins Sunday with the arrival of
594+ dm 500 mb heights. A weak cold front will move into the
northern Permian Basin Sunday but will not advance farther south
than around Lamesa before stalling. Heating ahead of the front
will send highs into the 100s across much of the area, though
still holding below Heat Advisory criteria. The high will remain
through at least Tuesday before shifting slightly east allowing
for a return of the light easterly flow. This will increase
moisture and decrease temps slightly toward the end of the week.
