.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 435 AM CDT Mon Jun 19 2017/


Overview for this forecast package includes several small chances
for thunderstorms, and another round of above normal temperatures
Wednesday and Thursday around 100 to 105 degrees.

In the upper levels, high pressure continues to dominate the Four
Corners region, and essentially puts us under northwesterly flow
aloft. This will basically be the case throughout the extended
period. Given the time of year and pattern aloft, multiple chance
for thunderstorms are expected over the next several days. Chances
begin on Tuesday, and nearly every day beyond that has at least
slight chances for thunderstorms. Severe weather will be possible
both Tuesday and Wednesday. Currently it doesn`t appear widespread
severe weather will be likely, but certainly there are variables
hinting at severe weather with hail and damaging winds the primary
threats. Outside of these two days its too early to say with
great confidence the chances for severe weather but thunderstorms
are expected through the week.
