DISCUSSION
 
 
UPPER RIDGE OVER THE REGION TODAY WITH AN UPPER TROUGH CENTERED  
OVER ID AND EXTENDING SOUTHWARD. AS THIS TROUGH SPINS EAST SHOULD  
HELP TO DISPLACE THE RIDGE A LITTLE ON FRIDAY AND MORE SO ON  
SATURDAY. THIS TROUGH WILL CROSS THE PLAINS SUNDAY WITH HIGH  
PRESSURE RETURNING EARLY NEXT WEEK.  
 
EXPECTING ANOTHER HOT DAY TODAY BECAUSE OF BOTH THE UPPER RIDGE  
AND A WESTERLY DOWN SLOPE WIND. MIDLAND... ST LAWRENCE... CRANE  
AND MCCAMEY HIT 104 DEGREES YESTERDAY AND SHOULD BE A DEGREE OR  
TWO HOTTER TODAY AS 850MB TEMPS INCREASE. HAVE ISSUED A HEAT  
ADVISORY FOR MIDLAND... ECTOR... GLASSCOCK... CRANE... AND UPTON  
COUNTIES FOR 105 DEGREES OR HOTTER. WILL ALSO ISSUE A HEAT  
ADVISORY ALONG THE RIO GRANDE IN THE BIG BEND WHERE 110 WILL BE  
POSSIBLE TODAY AT RIO GRANDE VILLAGE. MUCH OF THE TRANS PECOS AND  
EDDY COUNTY MAY SEE TEMPERATURES OF 104 TO 108 DEGREES TODAY BUT  
THAT WILL BE BELOW CRITERIA SO NOT INCLUDED. FRIDAY WILL STILL BE  
HOT BUT A FEW DEGREES COOLER THAN TODAY... AND READINGS DROP INTO  
THE 90S FOR MUCH OF THE AREA SATURDAY. A RETURN TO CLOSER TO  
NORMAL TEMPERATURES EXPECTED NEXT WEEK.  
 
THIS MORNING HAVE DRY AIR OVER THE WEST WITH DEWPTS IN THE 20S BUT  
MOIST OVER THE EAST WITH DEWPTS INTO THE UPPER 60S. NOT EXPECTING  
STORMS TODAY BUT THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF STORMS FRIDAY MAINLY  
ACROSS THE PERMIAN BASIN AND TRANS PECOS AS STORMS WILL BE  
POSSIBLE ALONG THE DRYLINE. A FEW OF THESE STORMS MAY BE STRONG  
AND COULD SEE SOME LINGER INTO THE EVENING HOURS. LOW CHANCES OF
