DISCUSSION...

Old timers in the NWS might summarize this forecast as being E:

Deep layer easterly flow aloft equatorward of the subtropical high
will persist through early next week. There may be just enough
moisture and instability to gin up isolated thunderstorms over the
mountains each afternoon, but more than likely all they`ll see is
MOGR CU. A weak upper level low over deep south Texas will begin to
retrograde westward toward the weekend, with negligible effects
hereabouts. By the weekend, mid and upper level heights rise as
the subtropical ridge reasserts itself. Temperatures will remain
near normal through the end of the work week, then begin to climb
a bit as thicknesses rise beneath the growing ridge. Lastly, surface
winds will remain southeasterly to southerly through early next
week and will show the usual diurnal trend of increasing by mid
morning and diminishing after sunset.
