AVIATION...

VFR conditions will prevail areawide today.  Scattered showers
and isolated thunderstorms will affect portions of the forecast
area, but will likely remain south of all terminals.

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 344 AM CDT SAT OCT 1 2016/

Upper ridging over the area will flatten this weekend as a
persistent upper low over the Ohio Valley lifts north and a
trough begins to dig along the West Coast. We saw a few showers
across the higher terrain and parts of SE NM yesterday with a weak
disturbance. Today it looks like the best chance for any
precipitation will be along and south of I-10. Weak ridging sticks
with us into Monday before mid level flow turns more southwesterly
ahead of the next upper trough. Our next best chance of rain,
albeit low, will come Monday night into Tuesday as the trough
lifts into the Plains. A few of the storms could be strong, but
will focus on that as we get closer to next week. A Pacific front
will pass through the area Tuesday bringing very little change
with it. A more significant front is possible later next week, but
models differ on strength and timing. Overall, the forecast is
looking fairly dry and warm through next week.
