.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 338 AM CDT SUN AUG 30 2015/

Abundant clouds kept temperatures below normal yesterday, but we
will have no such luck two days in a row as an upper level ridge
builds into the area. Mostly clear skies will allow for highs go
back to near normal today, then increase above normal once again
for the remainder of this week. Unfortunately the upper air
pattern will become stagnant with the ridge remaining over west
Texas and a trough over east Texas keeping our CWA in an area of
subsidence so not only will temperatures be above normal but there
will be little if any rain chances this week as well. An upper
level trough will move into the west coast next weekend breaking
down the upper ridge and allowing temperatures to cool slightly at
that time.
