DISCUSSION
 
 
UPPER RIDGE EXTENDING FROM THE PACIFIC INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS TODAY  
WILL CONTINUE OVER THE REGION THROUGH NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT  
IN UNSEASONABLY HOT WX FOR THE AREA.  
 
THE 500MB CHART OUT THROUGH 240HRS SHOWS THE RIDGE TO REMAIN INTACT  
THROUGH DAY 10 SO NO CHANGE FOR THE NEXT WEEK AND A HALF EXPECTED.  
CANNOT SAY WHEN THIS PATTERN WILL BREAK DOWN. TEMPS CLIMBING TO 100  
OR MORE FOR THE PECOS AND RIO GRANDE... ALREADY HAVE A HEAT ADVISORY  
OUT FOR PORTIONS OF THE RIO GRANDE. TEMPERATURES OF 110 DEGREES  
HAVE BEEN REPORTED AT RIO GRANDE VILLAGE. THESE ADVISORIES WILL  
CONTINUE AND EXPAND... COULD END UP TYING OR BREAKING SOME RECORD  
HIGHS BUT THE LATEST LONG TERM GUIDANCE HAS COME IN A FEW DEGREES  
COOLER NEXT WEEK THAN PREVIOUS OUTLOOKS. ON THURSDAY COULD SEE  
HIGHS UP TO 107 DEGREES FOR THE PECOS RIVER VALLEY... INCREASING TO  
109 BY SUNDAY. BY MONDAY COULD SEE HIGHS ALONG THE RIO GRANDE OF UP  
TO 115. LOWS WILL REMAIN ELEVATED IN THE THE MID TO UPPER 70S WITH  
EVEN SOME 80S EXPECTED SO EACH DAY WILL START ON THE WARM SIDE.  
 
MAF RADAR WILL DOWN FOR AN UPGRADE THE REST OF THE WEEK. BASED ON  
SATELLITE AND NEIGHBORING RADARS HAVE SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
OVER THE DAVIS MTNS SOUTH AND EASTWARD... AND OVER THE GUADALUPE  
MTNS. ON WEDNESDAY MODELS DEVELOP QPF OVER THE WESTERN SLOPES OF THE  
DAVIS MTNS UP THROUGH THE GUADALUPES SO WILL EXPAND ISOLATED POPS  
NORTHWARD... AND THROW A LITTLE POPS OVER THE MTNS FOR THURSDAY  
AFTERNOON. AFTER THAT IT LOOKS DRY... AS SUBSIDENCE FROM THE RIDGE  
INCREASES STORM CHANCES WILL DECREASE.
