.DISCUSSION...
Upper ridge moving across the region followed by southwest flow will
keep temperatures much above normal with relative humidities into
the single digits through the period. Expect highs in the mid 90s to
near 100.  Winds will be on the increase for Saturday out of the
south to southwest at 10 to 20 mph which will create some near red
flag conditions, especially over Grand and Hidalgo counties. Winds
should remain below critical speeds but come close toward the middle
of next week. Vent rates will remain very good to excellent.
