(Today and Tonight)

Look for dry conditions and warm temperatures to continue for the
next 24 hours. As high pressure continues to dominate, a very near
persistence forecast looks to be the best approach for highs this
afternoon and lows tonight. With a slightly stronger surface
pressure gradient today, as compared to yesterday, surface winds
will be southerly and mainly in the 10 to 15 mph range.

(Sunday Through Friday)

By Sunday morning the upper ridge over the forecast area will
stretch from the Four Corners area to East Texas as an upper level
low pressure system digs southeast into the western Great Lakes
region. An associated cold front will be located just north of the
Texas Panhandle. Prefrontal conditions over the forecast area on
Sunday will be a continuation of a string of hot and dry weather
days with afternoon highs again in the upper 90s to around 100.

As the upper level low continues to dig southeast on Monday the
associated frontal boundary will be the focus for convective
activity primarily initiating over the northern Panhandle and along
the Red River. This activity should bring a chance of showers and
thunderstorms to the northern Big Country beginning Monday afternoon
and through Monday night as convective outflow boundaries move

For the remainder of the week, with the upper high having been
pushed west of the area, a northwest flow aloft will keep the chance
of rainfall over most of the forecast area. Given the upper flow
pattern, have concentrated the best chance of precipitation stemming
from periodic disturbances embedded in the flow aloft, over the
northern and eastern sections of the CWA through the end of the

Given the expected precipitation footprint, temperatures over the
northern half of the area should remain in the lower 90s with the
warmer temperatures over the southern half of the area, in the mid
to upper 90s. Likewise, morning lows should run a little cooler over
the northern CWA with upper 60s to lower 70s expected. The southern
CWA will see lows in the lower 70s.
