.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 326 AM CDT TUE SEP 1 2015/

Upper ridge centered over SE TX this morning extends west across the
region.  This ridge will remain over the area through the week. Late
in the week an upper trough will move in off the NW coast but will
do little to displace the ridge.  Thus expect a continuation of the
recent warm weather.

September has arrived but unseasonably warm temperatures expected
through the week.  With no change in the upper pattern do not see
any fronts moving through this week.  Normal highs for this time of
year are in the lower 90s for the Permian Basin... highs look to be
the mid 90s. May see a few temps near 100 along the Rio Grande. Have
raised temps today and Wednesday going closer to persistence.

Precip chances will continue to favor the higher elevations... added
isolated storms for this afternoon/evening.  COuld see a few storms
again Wednesday from the Guadalupe to the Davis mountains.  Rest of
the week looking pretty dry.
