SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

The center of the upper high will remain over the Great Basin again
today, with the upper ridge axis stretched across the southern tier
of the CONUS. Low level flow will remain southerly today, with mid
level flow out of the northeast. Convective chances today will be
lower than yesterday but still non-zero and have added isolated
showers and thunderstorms across roughly the eastern two thirds of
the forecast area this afternoon, per latest Texas Tech WRF and
HRRR. Temperatures today will be similar to yesterday, with
afternoon highs ranging from the med 90s south, to the upper 90s
north. Lows tonight will be mainly in the lower and middle 70s.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday through Thursday)

The upper ridge centered over the southwestern CONUS Saturday will
continue to spread eastward through this weekend and will be
centered over the Southern Plains through the coming week. The
presence of the upper ridge will bring hot and dry conditions to
the forecast area through next Thursday. Afternoon highs will be
in the upper 90s Saturday and in the upper 90s and triple digits
Sunday through next Thursday. Overnight lows will remain in the
70s through the period.
