SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

An upper level ridge remains centered across the Great Basin region,
while West Central Texas remains on the eastern periphery of the
ridge. Similar to what we saw yesterday, isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop this afternoon
and dissipate by early evening. Most locations will remain dry,
but locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will be possible with
any thunderstorms that develop. Highs today will remain above
seasonal normals, generally in the mid to upper 90s. Overnight
lows will mainly be in the low to mid 70s.

LONG TERM...
(Friday through Wednesday)

The upper ridge over the Great Basin region will expand eastward
this weekend and become centered over the Southern Plains by
early next week. While an isolated shower or thunderstorm cannot
be ruled out across mainly northern portions of the forecast area
Friday and Saturday, increasing subsidence beneath the ridge will
result in mainly hot and dry conditions through the extended
period. Daytime highs will warm from the mid and upper 90s Friday
and Saturday, to the upper 90s to around 100 degrees Sunday
through Wednesday. Overnight lows will remain in the 70s through
the period.
