.AVIATION...
00Z TAF ISSUANCE...
Main aviation concern for the next 24 hours is
low cigs affecting some terminals early Thursday morning. Currently
have somewhat breezy SE winds across the region and expect speeds to
diminish overnight. MAF and FST may remain elevated through at least
midnight. MVFR/IFR cigs return once again Thursday morning and look
to affect MAF, HOB and INK for a few hours. Otherwise, VFR
conditions will be the rule.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 318 PM CDT WED JUL 1 2015/

DISCUSSION...
Not much change expected in the forecast through the end of the
week. An upper high will remain centered near the Four Corners
region leaving west Texas and southeastern New Mexico in a slight
northwesterly upper flow. Subsidence on the southeastern side of
this high will put a cap on most convection with the best rain
chances occurring in the orographically favored Davis and
Guadalupe Mountains as well as southeastern New Mexico and the
northern Permian Basin where outflows from convection farther
north may provide enough forced ascent. Early next week the high
will drift slightly east creating a more westerly upper flow
causing temperatures to climb a few degrees. Rain chances will
also diminish as subsidence increases.
