National Weather Service Lubbock TX
405 AM CDT MON JUL 18 2016

.SHORT TERM...
High pressure will continue to dominate the region today. This will
equate to more hot temps with upper 90s/100s being expected
today. Winds will be similar to yesterday, south to southeast
around 15 mph as a lee trof will still be in position to our
northwest this afternoon.

.LONG TERM...
Models have flip flopped this morning for next weekend with
indications that the high that is initially firmly planted over the
Southern Plain will begin to morph west into next weekend and
early next week. As such, above normal temperatures are expected
to persist with at least some (non-mentionable at this point) of
convection possibilities next weekend. Temperatures this week look
to hover near the century mark at this point as thickness values
remain tame given the proximity of the upper level high. NWP does
indicate some prospect of increased clouds/POP chance next Monday
as would be expected with NW flow aloft. However, at this point,
both may be a bit overdone given the weak flow aloft.
