.DISCUSSION...

Not much change is expected for the next 7 days as the upper pattern
will pretty much remain the same. Upper ridging is currently over
much of the country and is expected to remain over the CWA through
the end of the forecast period with the center of the ridge changing
positions. Good low-level moisture will generally remain across the
area with south to southeast surface winds. There is a chance of
showers and thunderstorms each afternoon across the higher terrain
and surrounding plains due to the upslope flow bringing in moisture
along elevated heat sources. Temperatures are expected to be in the
mid to upper 90s across most of the Permian Basin with an average
temperature of 95 degrees for this time of year.
