forecast period.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 319 AM CDT SAT SEP 5 2015/

DISCUSSION...
Upper ridge over the area will wobble around but remain over the
region into next week.  This will result in a continuation of warm
and dry wx.  However by late next week an upper trough moving
through the Central Plains will push a cold front through the area.

Unseasonably warm temperatures will continue through the middle of
next week.  Look for widespread highs in the mid to upper 90s with
100+ conditions along the Rio Grande.  A prevailing south wind
will keep dewpts in the 50s and 60s and keep overnight lows up.
The cold front is running a little slower than previous runs and
looks to arrive late Thursday/early Friday.  Post frontal temps
will see the return of highs in the 80s.

There were some showers/storms over Central NM yesterday but no
precip in the area.  A few storms over the higher elevations will be
only chance of precip today or tomorrow... have lowered pops today
but left them in from CNM down to MRF.  Rain chances increase
areawide as the front arrives.  Have several periods of chance TRW
late next week... especially for the Permian Basin.
