VFR conditions will prevail next 24 hours in dry, westerly flow. A

forecast period.


PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 357 AM CST Tue Nov 25 2014/

Will begin the day with an upper trough extending down the center
of the country with a ridge over the western U.S.  This ridge will
build east over the region as the trough moves off toward the Atlantic.
The result will be mild wx for W TX and SE NM through the week.

Surface analysis indicates a weak front is moving through the area
this morning... will not be much cooling with it but the wind will
come around to the north.  However by late afternoon a SW wind will
return as a leeside trough develops.  Afternoon highs should end up
little changed from those yesterday with readings in the 50s.  May
see another brief wind shift to the north Wednesday but highs will
warm into the 60s.  Temperatures climb through the end of the week
into the weekend as upper flow becomes nearly zonal. Look for highs
around 70.

Scattered mid level clouds over the center of the area this morning
will keep moving off to the southeast... skies should be mostly
clear today.  Actually not a lot of clouds expected next few days so
should see mostly sunny days and mostly clear nights.

Forecast looks dry for the rest of the week.  In the extended there
will be a chance of storms next Tuesday night as a strong upper
trough approaches the area from the west.
