.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 335 AM CDT SAT JUL 23 2016/

SHORT TERM...
Not much change again in the weather to start off the weekend.
Upper level high pressure will continue to dominate the pattern.
Forecast thickness values will be a touch higher today suggesting
a degree or two warmer compared to Fridays temperatures. Mid level
moisture and its associated convection will edge a bit closer from
the northwest but still remain well to the west in New Mexico.

LONG TERM...
Mostly hot dry summertime weather is expected for the next 7 days.
However the center of the upper level ridge will shift westward
after this weekend. As it does thickness values and temperatures
aloft should start to decrease ever so slightly and precipitable
water values increase enough to allow for isolated thunderstorm
activity. Significant rainfall chances will be spotty at best and
most likely over parts of the panhandle and western South Plains.
Temperatures should remain near the century mark through Sunday or
Monday and then moderate a few degrees back into the mid 90s.
