Persistence rules. VFR conditions will prevail next 24 hours under

DISCUSSION...

The upper ridge will start to build over the western part of the
country during the weekend but will still remain over West Texas and
southeast New Mexico. The ridge becomes more centered over the
southcentral part of the country by early to mid next week then
begins to build over the Rocky Mountains later next week.
Temperatures will generally remain in the mid to upper 90s across
the Permian Basin with a slight warm up later next week. Chances of
showers and thunderstorms will remain across the area through next
week with the best chances across the higher terrain.
