.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 336 AM CDT FRI JUN 24 2016/

DISCUSSION...
The sub tropical ridge will continue to dominate wx pattern for the
coming week.  Therefor expect little change from recent summertime
pattern.  Weak disturbances will move off the Gulf and track
westward moving under the center of the ridge and could help produce
some rain.

Yesterday Presidio was 106 and Rio Grande Village was 110.  It
should be a few degrees cooler there today but still well over the
century mark along the Rio Grande.  Slowly decreasing 850mb temps
should result in temperatures closer to normal today and
Saturday.  By Sunday and Monday temps may fall below normal.

At the surface the wind will remain out of the S to SE which will
keep low level moisture elevated.  Overall not much expecting much
in way of rain.  Did have some weak storms pop up during the early
morning over SE NM down to near Van Horn.  Current forecast has some
low pops this morning mainly bordering the western edge of the CWA
and again Saturday and Saturday night.  On Sunday and Monday these
pops expand east into the Permian Basin.
