.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 325 AM CDT TUE JUL 19 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Upper level analysis shows persistent upper ridge spinning over
the Southern Plains. Skies are generally clear with plenty of
subsidence per 00z sounding. At the surface...winds are generally
5-10kts from SSE with temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

With upper ridge in place... expect hot temperatures and dry
conditions to continue. Lowered high temperatures a degree or two
based on trends as backing winds during the afternoon have had
enough easterly component to keep highs around guidance. Towards
end of the week... models start sliding the high pressure westward
which will help increase highs into more triple digit territory.
By the weekend... some deamplification of the ridge is expected
which will allow a few weak disturbances to move over the area.
For now maintained slight pops and expanded a little further
south to include AMA.

.AMA Watches/Warnings/Advisories...
