.DISCUSSION...
Summer is the season of the upper ridge and the next seven days
are no exception. The best you can hope for is to avoid having the
high pressure center overhead, which we thankfully manage to do
for the most part. High pressure will remain centered over the
four corners region through the end of the week with an
occasional wobble to the east. That will leave southwest Texas and
southeast New Mexico under a general deep easterly or southerly
flow keeping temperatures near or only slightly above normal.
About the only chance for rain will be isolated storms in the
Davis and Guadalupe Mountains.

Several models are showing an easterly wave may move into eastern
Mexico from the Gulf and move northward towards our area by the
weekend. The increase in moisture and cooler temperatures aloft
could provide enough instability for more widely scattered showers
and storms by Sunday, but easterly waves are notoriously hard to
predict so confidence in any rainfall is still low.
