.DISCUSSION...

A rather benign forecast is on tap for the next week.  WV imagery
shows yesterday`s trough that brought a little wind to the area
entering the MS valley, leaving West Texas and Southeast New Mexico
under NW flow aloft.  Out west, a trough is developing over
SoCal/Baja, w/models closing it off over Sonora by 18Z Wed.  This
feature is then forecast to move NE thru Texas and into OK later in
the week, w/out much fanfare.  Instead, a general increase in
thicknesses will result in a slow warming trend thru the end of the
week, w/Friday being the warmest day this forecast.  Meanwhile, a
trough will traverse east thru Canada, and drop a dry cold front
into the area Friday night/Saturday.  This will take temps down
closer to normal thru the weekend.

Unfortunately, rain chances look slim-to-none this forecast, other
than a slight chance of rain Sun night/Mon far eastern zones as a
shortwave moves thru the region.
