AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
436 AM CDT Sat Aug 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...
The weather pattern unfortunately will be dominated by upper
level ridging the next several days. Separate high centers over
both coasts will be bridged with ridging across the southwest and
Gulf Coast and the associated subsidence will bring hot and dry
conditions. We will see temperatures slowly climb through
Monday before an 850mb high over the Gulf Coast builds back into
west Texas advecting cooler gulf air and bringing highs back down
to near normal. In persistent weather patterns, it is difficult to
beat guidance so this forecast has stayed close to MEX guidance
the 7 day forecast period. Dewpoints will be high enough that we
could see some isolated afternoon convection develop each day,
especially in the higher elevations.
