06Z Issuance...VFR conditions expected to prevail through the period

.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 630 PM CDT TUE JUL 19 2016/

For the 00Z TAFS, an upper level ridge of high pressure will persist
across the srn high plains through late Wednesday afternoon. A
surface trof of low pressure will remain over ern CO and ern NM. This
will cause winds to increase again by mid morning Wednesday and
continue through the afternoon hours. No precipitation is anticipated
for the next 24 hours. VFR conditions will prevail at all terminal
sites through late Wednesday afternoon.


PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 328 PM CDT TUE JUL 19 2016/

A ridge of high pressure will continue to dictate the weather
throughout the forecast period. S-SE winds in the morning will
transition to S-SW flow during the afternoon hours as we continue to
well mix across the region. High temperatures will range from the
upper 90s to lower 100s throughout the week with tranquil weather
conditions expected.

Starting the second half of the weekend, the ridge will start the
deamplify and break down across the south central U.S. and bring our
next chances of precipitation. Best chances of precipitation will be
across the OK Panhandle and northern TX Panhandle where latest 19/12Z
model and probabilistic data show some diurnal convection. As we go
into early next week, a NW flow will return to the region, increasing
some chances of precipitation as a series of weak disturbances move
east across our northern areas.
