Mid-level ridge centered near 4-corners expected to maintain weak
northwest flow into Panhandles through Wednesday night.  Flow then
transitions to near zonal Thursday through Friday.  Models then
suggest that slightly stronger flow will direct a series of shortwave
trofs through the forecast area Friday night through Monday.

A cold front could enter northern sections as early as Thursday
afternoon.  This feature is likely to remain in the area through
Sunday, with convection to its north dictating its southernmost
intrusion.  Considerable uncertainty regarding daily position of
cold front, with trickle-down uncertainty regarding high temperatures
and precipitation potential.  Pops generally highest in northern
sections, where front expected to be during most periods.  High
temperatures expected to be fairly close to climo through Sunday,
with return to 100 degree maxima forecast for Monday.
