.DISCUSSION...
Upper level high pressure centered across the southern plains and
southern rockies will be the main weather influence through Saturday.
This should limit thunderstorm activity (isolated to widely
scattered) to the orographically favored Davis Mountains closest
to a weak inverted upper trough and the Guadalupe Mountains and
portions of the southeast New Mexico Plains closest to a
persistent weak surface lee trough. High temperatures are expected
to be slightly above normal with the upper ridge dominating.

The chance for more widespread unsettled weather will increase
Sunday through early next week as the upper high shifts west to
the Rockies setting up an unstable northwest flow aloft over the
forecast area. Periodic disturbances within this flow may combine
with a slow moving cold front to produce an increasing chance for
thunderstorms and cooler temperatures across west Texas and
southeast New Mexico.
