.SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

Hot and dry weather will persist across West Central Texas again
today, with the upper ridge dominating. Almost a repeat from
yesterday as far as temperatures are concerned, although the thermal
ridge will be a tad weaker today, so lowered temperatures around a
degree. South winds will become breezy again from mid to late
morning through afternoon, with highs topping out in the upper 90s,
with a few locales across the Concho Valley and Big Country reaching
the century mark. Heat indices will range between 98 and 103 degrees
this afternoon. It will be warm again tonight, with lows in the 70s.

.LONG TERM...
(Thursday into Next Week)

Our hot and dry conditions will continue into the weekend thanks
to the upper level ridge anchored over the Southern Plains. Highs
will continue to top out in the upper 90s to near 101 degrees,
with overnight lows only in the 70s. A pattern change looks to
take hold going into the beginning of next week however. The upper
level ridge is forecast to retreat back to the west across the
Great Basin, as an upper level trough deepens across the eastern
CONUS. Both the GFS and ECMWF are in good agreement in dragging a
a cold front into the region in the resultant northerly flow.
Showers and thunderstorms would be possible along the front along
with cooler temperatures than what we are experiencing this week.
