.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 214 PM CDT WED JUL 20 2016/

DISCUSSION...

Another day of above normal temperatures is expected today with a
broad upper ridge centered over the southcentral conus. Not
expecting much in the way of storms and rain across the area today
except maybe an isolated storm or two across the higher terrain.

Temperatures may be a degree or two warmer tomorrow than today as
850 mb temps warm slightly; otherwise, not much change is expected
from today.  850 mb temps increase slightly more on Friday as the
upper ridge gets somewhat flattened by upper troughs/shortwaves
moving over the northern conus.  Saturday and Sunday will be similar
to Friday with high temps across the Permian Basin in the upper 90s
to around 100 degrees.  Temperatures are expected to cool into the
mid 90s across the Permian Basin on Monday as the surface winds
become more southeasterly bringing in more moisture.  Models are
also indicating an increased chance of precipitation on Monday.
Temperatures will continue to be slightly above normal through the
middle of next week with a slight chance of rain/storms across
portions of the area.
