DISCUSSION...

Don`t look for much to change into this weekend as the upper ridge
continues to dominate our weather. Mid-level heights and
temperatures increase today into the weekend before a cooling
trend begins next week. Temperatures will be above normal through
Sunday with highs mostly near 100, except for the higher terrain.
The ridge will also suppress most if not all convection the next
few days.

Some relief may be on the way early next week as the center of the
upper ridge shifts west toward the Four Corners. An inverted
trough will also move east along the Gulf Coast making its way to
Texas by midweek. Increasing moisture and lower heights will allow
for temperatures to cool back toward normal. We could also see an
increase in convection so stay tuned!
