.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 255 AM CDT FRI SEP 4 2015/

DISCUSSION...
The upper ridge will remain over the region even though an upper
trough digs across the NW part of the country the next few days. The
best it will be able to do is flatten out the top of the ridge as it
moves east.  Therefore not looking for much change in the wx out
through the middle of next week.

Still getting lots of high clouds streaming over the area as Pacific
moisture gets pulled around the west side of the ridge... helping
morning lows to be slow to cool.  Unseasonably warm temperatures
will continue with highs in the mid to upper 90s with a few
locations along the Rio Grande still hitting highs of 100 or more.
A cold front is still on track for next Thursday will result in
at least a couple days of cooler temps.

Did have a few light showers/storms over the far western edge of the
area yesterday... could see these again the next few days favoring
the higher elevations.  Best chance of rain for the plains will be
along/behind the front late next week.
