.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 201 PM CDT Tue Jul 17 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Soundings show atmosphere is much more stable than recent days as
depth of drier has increased and as mid-levels warm. A brief storm
or 2 will be possible in the Davis/GDP Mtns. Otherwise high temps
are about 2 degrees warmer today than 24hrs ago and M90s to 100
for the PB still look good today. 85h temps near 30C and surface
Td below 50F should send temps soaring Wed-Thur. Fri-Sun mid-level
ridging will build e into W TX/SE NM and high temps will be just
plain hot. We will continue the Special Weather Statement issued
this morning for the upcoming extended period of hot weather. Low
end heat advisory criteria is most likely to start Thur across
the PB and extend into the weekend. The mid-level ridge will hold
sway into at least til Mon, but there continues to be a trend for
the ridge to build w Tue which could open up a brief window of nw
mid-level flow late Mon night-Tue favoring at least low order
PoPs across far nw and n.
