RELATIVELY QUIET SHORT TERM PERIOD ON TAP. MODELS CONSISTENT WITH
KEEPING FRONTAL BOUNDARY AT BAY AS HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES THE

/ISSUED 329 PM EDT TUE JUL 7 2015/
RIDGE WILL BUILD ALOFT THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK...BUT BEGIN TO
SHIFT WESTWARD BY THE END OF THE WEEK. NW FLOW ALOFT IS EXPECTED
EARLY NEXT WEEK AS A TROUGH DIGS DOWN THE EAST COAST AS THE CENTER
OF THE HIGH PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS WEST TX.

MAX TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO KEEP CREEPING UPWARDS INTO THE 90S FOR
MOST LOCALES THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ONLY THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS MAY
HAVE A BREAK FROM THE 90S...WITH HIGH TEMPS EXPECTED IN THE MIDDLE
AND UPPER 80S.

NO REAL STRONG OR WELL DEFINED SURFACE FEATURES TO FOCUS CONVECTION
THROUGH THE WEEKEND...SO POPS SHOULD REMAIN LOW END CHANCE/SLIGHT
CHANCE. POPS MAY BEGIN TO INCREASE BY THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK AS
A FRONTAL BOUNDARY SLOWLY APPROACHES FROM THE NORTH AND SHORTWAVES
ENERGY DROPS SOUTH IN THE NW FLOW.

NO MAJOR CHANGES TO THE LONG TERM PORTION OF THE FORECAST.
