.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 140 PM CDT TUE SEP 29 2015/

Upper ridge centered over Baja will continue to extend across
the area most of the week.  By Thursday the next upper trough will
come ashore the West Coast and start moving east.  By Friday this
trough will swing across the Rockies.  A secondary trough will swing
down behind the first one Saturday and move down across CA/NV on

Overall expect little change in day to day wx with above normal
temperatures continuing through Saturday.  Normal highs for this
time across the Permian Basin should be in the lower 80s with lows
in the 50s.  However have had highs pushing 90 with lows in the 60s.
However a cold front is expected to move into the area Sunday.
Combination of a cooler airmass and more cloud cover should result
in cooler temps for the end of the week into the start of next week.

Precip chances not looking good most of the week as dry wx expected.
Models start to develop a little precip Saturday over the NE but
expand it southward across the area Saturday night and Sunday.  Storm
chances continue Monday and Tuesday.
