DISCUSSION...

Overall not much to speak of high impact weather-wise in the near
term. Several chances for showers/thunderstorms but widespread
severe weather does not look likely in the near term. Most
noteworthy items include warm temperatures in the 90s approaching
100-103 degrees in some areas, as well as the potential for
localized moderate to perhaps heavy rainfall this weekend into
parts of next week.

Upper level pattern shows high pressure dominating much of the
southwestern CONUS. High pressure begins to slide east and sit over
us come early next week. Pattern really isn`t favorable for severe
weather with weak forcing and weak instability. Any storms that form
this weekend will be slow movers, and given the high precipitable
water values there could be some appreciable rainfall amounts. That
being said, outside of a few thunderstorms, there doesn`t appear to
the any widespread severe weather in the upcoming days.
