.DISCUSSION...

The upper low that sat over the area last week has weakened and
moved east as a much larger trough moves into the Great Basin. Rain
chances really drop off today areawide except for some terrain
induced convection in the Davis Mountains. The upper low begins to
shear out and lift into the Plains Monday. This will bring a chance
of storms to southeast New Mexico and possibly the northern Permian
Basin Monday afternoon and evening. Considering the impressive shear
associated with this system, a few severe storms will be possible.
Another shortwave will dig on the backside of the departing low and
drag a cold front through the area Thursday. The front will likely
pass through dry as most of the energy associated with the trough
slides to our north. By next weekend, a large ridge builds across
the West and extends into our region keeping things dry.

Temperatures will warm each day through midweek as sfc winds turn
more southwesterly during the afternoons. We are likely not done
with the 90s just yet as summer is still trying to hang on.
Temperatures will cool to near normal Friday behind the cold front,
but should warm back up next weekend as the upper ridge develops.
