.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 157 PM CDT TUE JUN 21 2016/

Quiet weather pattern will continue through Saturday as upper level
high pressure dominates the region. 850 millibar temperature forecasts
suggest above normal temperatures are in the offing beneath the
ridge through Saturday. Intense heating on the higher terrain combined
with southeasterly upslope flow and fairly cool 700 millibar temperatures
could allow diurnal driven isolated thunderstorms to form in the
Guadalupe and or Davis Mountains through Saturday.

Beyond Saturday through early next week, an upper level low pressure
system is forecast to track westward from the western Gulf of
Mexico toward the Big Bend Region. This would tend to undercut the
ridge over the area and allow for high temperatures to cool to
more normal values Sunday through next Tuesday. In addition the
chance for showers and thunderstorms will increase particularly
across the Big Bend Region as the system approaches.
