DISCUSSION...  
 
A MID LEVEL IMPULSE ALONG WITH A SOUTHWARD MOVING COLD FRONT WILL  
BRING A CHANCE OF STORMS TO MUCH OF THE PERMIAN BASIN THIS  
MORNING. STORMS ARE BEGINNING TO DEVELOP SOUTH OF LUBBUCK AND WILL  
SLOWLY MOVE SOUTH THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. MODERATE TO LOCALLY  
HEAVY RAIN COULD CAUSE MINOR FLOODING ESPECIALLY IN URBAN AREAS.  
THESE STORMS ALONG WITH THE COLD FRONT WILL MOVE SOUTH ACROSS THE  
AREA WITH "COOLER", DRIER AIR FILTERING IN BY THIS AFTERNOON. HIGH  
TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE MUCH CLOSER TO NORMAL TODAY.  
 
THE HEAT QUICKLY RETURNS TUESDAY THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK AS  
UPPER RIDGING BUILDS BACK IN FROM THE WEST. SUBSIDENCE WILL KEEP  
SKIES DRY WHILE INCREASING HEIGHTS AND MID LEVEL TEMPERATURES WILL  
ALLOW AFTERNOON HIGHS TO CLIMB BACK ABOVE NORMAL. THE HOTTEST DAYS  
LOOK TO BE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WHEN MANY LOCATIONS OUTSIDE OF THE  
MOUNTAINS COULD SEE TEMPERATURES NEAR OR ABOVE 100. AN EARLY LOOK AT  
THE WEEKEND AHEAD CURRENTLY LOOKS HOT AND DRY AS WELL.
