.DISCUSSION...
Upper level high pressure centered across the southern plains and
southern rockies will be the main weather influence through Saturday.
This should limit thunderstorm activity (isolated to widely
scattered) to the orographically favored Davis Mountains (closest
to a weak inverted upper trough moving west across Mexico) and
the Guadalupe Mountains and portions of the southeast New Mexico
Plains closest to a persistent weak surface trough. High temperatures
are expected to be a few degrees above normal with the upper
ridge dominating.

The chance for more widespread unsettled weather will increase
beginning possibly as early as late Sunday and continuing through
the middle of next week. The upper level high is forecast to
shift slightly to the west to the Rockies setting up an unstable
north to northwest flow aloft over the forecast area. Periodic
disturbances within this flow will combine with oscillating weak
boundaries and low level convergence areas to produce an increasing
chance for thunderstorms and cooler temperatures across west
Texas and southeast New Mexico.
