DISCUSSION...  
 
WV IMAGERY SHOWS THE UPPER RIDGE EXTENDING ACROSS THE SRN CONUS, AND  
FORECAST TO MOVE VERY LITTLE OVER THE NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER, AN UPPER  
TROUGH/TUTT CHURNING SW OF LAREDO MAY BRING A LITTLE RELIEF TO WEST  
TEXAS AND SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO IN THE SHORT TERM. THIS FEATURE IS  
FORECAST TO CURVE NORTHWARD OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, AND ENTER THE  
BIG BEND AREA BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON. IT IS THEN FORECAST TO MOVE  
NORTH THRU THE PERMIAN BASIN AND THEN BACK TOWARDS CENTRAL TEXAS  
NEXT WEEK. THIS SHOULD GENERALLY PROMOTE AN INCREASE IN CLOUD  
COVER, AND KEEP TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL INTO NEXT WEEK. BEST  
PRECIP CHANCES SHOULD BE ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE TROUGH,  
ESPECIALLY SUNDAY/SUNDAY NIGHT, BUT EQUALLY DECENT CHANCES WILL  
REMAIN OVER THE WESTERN MTNS IN UPSLOPE FLOW EACH DAY. HOWEVER,  
THESE UPPER TROUGHS CAN BE DISAPPOINTING, SO WE'LL KEEP POPS AT A  
CHANCE AT BEST ATTM.  
 
OTHERWISE, THE UPPER RIDGE WILL CENTER OVER THE GULF COAST STATES  
FOR THE FIRST PART OF THE FORECAST, THEN SHIFT BACK TO THE FOUR  
CORNERS NEXT WEEK W/THE DEMISE OF THE UPPER TROUGH. THIS WILL ALLOW  
FOR A WARMING TREND IN THE EXTENDED, BACK TO ABOVE-NORMAL BY  
MIDWEEK.
