DISCUSSION...  
CURRENT SATELLITE IS SHOWING CUMULUS DEVELOPING IN THE DAVIS  
MOUNTAINS WHERE ONE OR TWO SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS COULD OCCUR  
THIS AFTERNOON. HOWEVER AN AMPLIFYING UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL  
SUPPRESS MOST CONVECTION AND KEEP THE AREA DRY THROUGH THE  
WEEKEND.  
 
A DEEP LOW OVER THE SOUTHERN GREAT LAKES HAS NORTH WINDS OVER THE  
PLAINS WHICH HAS BROUGHT COOLER AND DRIER AIR INTO WEST TEXAS AND  
EASTERN NEW MEXICO THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS. THIS LOW WILL  
UNFORTUNATELY MOVE EAST BY THE WEEKEND CAUSING SOUTH WINDS AND  
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS TO RETURN.
