.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 129 PM CDT Tue Jul 23 2019/

DISCUSSION...
Upper ridge over the Four Corners region will drift a little to the
west by the weekend before returning east next week eventually
wandering onto the plains.  This will result in mild weather for the
region.

Have post frontal conditions today over W TX and SE NM with easterly
upslope flow.  Temperatures today are 10 degrees or more cooler than
the same time yesterday.  With drier air moving into the region from
the NE looking for much lower overnight temps into the lower 60s
with a few 50s over the higher elevation.  Readings will still be
below normal Wednesday before rising back to the mid 90s on Thursday
and continue near that through the weekend as southerly flow returns.

Much of the area received rain yesterday with some locations getting
over an inch.  There is a chance of storms this afternoon over the
higher elevations... will go ahead and extend isolated pops into the
evening... but otherwise this shot of rain is over. For those
locations that do get rain brief heavy rain will be possible.  GFS
brings a low around the ridge and down into the area late Friday so
will have to keep an eye on that but currently not developing much
with it.  The only other mention of rain is some low pops in the
extended favoring the mountains.
