.DISCUSSION...
A series of upper troughs will move across the NW US this week with
a stronger one digging down the West Coast Thursday and Friday.  As
this trough moves east look for SW flow aloft to set up across the
region.  This will allow shortwaves to track across the area and
could initiate storm development later in the week.

Temperatures will remain above normal with highs in the 90s through
the week but are expected to cool back into the 80s by the start of
next week.  Most of the area will see lows in the 60s and 70s with
even a few 50s possible at Marfa and Tatum.  Models have been
teasing the arrival of a significant front end of the week but keep
pushing it back in time... now not making it here in 240hrs.

As far as precip not expecting much tonight... may be a few storms
along the western border and higher elevations... could reach as far
east as the Pecos River. May be more activity on Tuesday... perhaps
early... as models depict showers and storms moving off the Rio
Grande and spreading across the Trans Pecos. Have bumped up pops
slightly Tuesday south of the Pecos.  Tuesday night and Wednesday
the best rain chances will shift to the SE counties.  Rain chances
may increase again toward the weekend.
