.DISCUSSION...

Heavy rain continues across parts of the area this afternoon as a
slow moving upper low shifts west of the Pecos River. Several
inches of rain fell across parts of Terrell county this morning
and some roads are impassable or washed out. PWATs near and east
of the low are about 1.5 to 1.8 inches so heavy rain and some
flooding will be a concern into tonight, especially along and west
of the Pecos River. The low weakens and moves into northern Mexico
tomorrow as an upper ridge attempts to build in from the
northwest. Increasing subsidence will cause a quick decrease in
precip coverage areawide by midweek, but isolated convection still
cannot be ruled out. The center of the ridge moves southeast
toward South Texas this weekend and may allow for some convection
across the mountains. Temperatures will climb back to normal by
midweek as moisture decreases somewhat. Guidance may be a little
high due to all the rain over the past few days so will stay on
the low side keeping highs generally below 100 for much of the
area.
