.DISCUSSION...
Broad upper ridge across the southern half of the country will
remain over the region through the coming week and beyond.  Summer
time pattern will continue with little day to day change in the
weather with near to above normal temperatures with mainly
afternoon thunderstorms over the higher elevations.

Near persistence seems to be the best bet for temperatures. 850mb
temps show a slow increase next few days so expect high temperatures
to slowly increase.  The hottest locations will be along the Pecos
and Rio Grande Valleys with 100s becoming more common elsewhere by
the middle of next week.  Lows generally around 70

Saturday was another day of afternoon thunderstorms south of the
Pecos River and over and near the higher elevations.  Model qpf
indicating most of the storms the next few days will be along the
western edge of the area where orographic lift will be better.
With decent low level moisture a few of these storms could have
locally heavy rain.
