.DISCUSSION...
A surface high pressure center will move over the CWA today
keeping the cool temperatures in place. The high will move east
tomorrow and an upper trough digging into the desert southwest
will increase clouds and continue the cool temps for one more day.
The trough will not only increase clouds but will bring a chance
for rain northwest of a Lamesa to Pecos line. Continued southerly
flow and clearing skies Sunday will bring warmer and drier
conditions that will then last for a few days.

Models are still showing the possibility of a significant cold
front moving through the area late next week. Unfortunately there
is a great deal of variability in how the upper pattern will
evolve which will have a major impact on precipitation chances.
This system is currently beyond our forecast time frame but will
be something to bear watching in the coming days.
