VFR conditions are expected at the west Texas and southeast New
Mexico terminals the next 24 hours. A few thunderstorms may move
into southeast New Mexico this afternoon and this evening but
confidence was not high enough to mention at any of the terminals.
Winds will generally be easterly at 5 to 15 mph with an occasional
higher gust, especially this afternoon.

The latest Aviation Discussion is included below.

AVIATION...

A few thunderstorms will remain west of all area terminals early
this morning, but isolated storms will be possible again this
afternoon and evening. Since the probability of storms affecting
any terminals is low, will not make mention in any of the
forecasts.  VFR conditions will prevail otherwise.

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 305 AM CDT MON JUL 25 2016/

Changes are on the way, but first we`ve got to get through one
more hot day. The upper ridge, currently centered over northern
New Mexico, will continue to shift off to the west this week. This
will allow an inverted trough to move east along the Gulf Coast
and influence our weather the next several days.

Temperatures near 100 can be expected again today with an isolated
storm possible almost anywhere as mid level moisture begins to
increase. The inverted trough will move into Texas early Tuesday
bringing with it a better chance of rain and cooler temperatures
through the end of the week. Highs will likely stay near normal
while we see scattered showers and storms develop each afternoon.
Some of the storms may contain localized heavy rain as PWATs
increase over 1". Some models show the trough stalling over Texas
into the weekend as it becomes stuck in between two mid level
ridges. Will continue to watch the forecast trends and keep low
PoPs in the extended for now.
