.DISCUSSION...

Surface high pressure across the southern plains and Mississippi
valley will be the dominant influence through Tuesday providing a
dry but cool period with below normal temperatures.

By Tuesday night and Wednesday a quick moving southern stream
trough and upper jet is forecast to track from New Mexico into
the Texas panhandle. Guidance is indicating that there will be
enough lift with this system to generate a chance of showers
across southeast New Mexico and much of west Texas (except the Big
Bend). Will mention isolated thunderstorms as well due to steep
mid level lapse rates expected with approach and passage of the
upper level system.

Some warming with temperatures near normal is expected Thursday
and Friday with the approach and passage of another quick moving
southern stream system moving across the central and southern
plains. It looks like the core of this system will pass further
north than the previous one so will not mention any precipitation
at this time.

Dry with above normal temperatures is anticipated Saturday ahead
of the next Pacific system. The associated dry cold front will
swing through the forecast area by Sunday bringing below normal
temperatures to the forecast area next Sunday and Monday.
