VFR conditions are expected the next 24 hours under mostly clear
skies at the west Texas and southeast New Mexico terminals. Light
southeast winds will generally increase to 10 to 15 mph and gusty
by mid to late Morning through early this evening before
diminishing again overnight.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 348 AM CDT MON AUG 31 2015/

DISCUSSION...
It is a good thing we are heading into September and not July,
with an upper level ridge building over the area we will see
temperatures above normal but not as high as we saw earlier in
August. Of course the upper high will not be allowed to get very
strong thanks to a trough moving into the western states. The
upper high will eliminate rain chances the next couple of days,
but as the high breaks down we will see increasing convection
beginning in the Davis and Guadalupe Mountains by midweek. Late in
the week southwesterly flow will increase as the trough moves into
the four corners region and this will push the mountain convection
east into the western and possibly central Permian Basin by early
next week.
