DISCUSSION...

Parts of the area received heavy rain again yesterday, but
luckily it fell over locations that were fairly dry. Much quieter
on the radar this morning than 24 hours ago so expect a calm
morning weatherwise. By this afternoon more showers and storms
will develop across the area. A large subtropical high over the SE
U.S. nudges west today so the best coverage of precip will be
mainly along and west of the Pecos River. Storms may develop along
outflow boundaries leftover from Wednesday`s convection. Heavy
rain and localized flash flooding will be possible again as
moisture content remains high and storms train over the same
areas.

Not much changes Friday as western portions of the area will remain
favored to get most of the storms. As the mid level high stays in
place to our east a weak ridge will develop to our west this
weekend. This will keep our region in a mid level weakness into
next week with diurnal convection possible each day and
temperatures holding just below normal for late August.
