(12Z TAFS)

VFR CONDITIONS SHOULD PREVAIL THROUGH THE PERIOD. WINDS WILL  
SHIFT BETWEEN S/SE AND BECOME GUSTY IN THE AFTERNOON HOURS AT  
KINK/KFST/KMAF. TSRA WILL DEVELOP SOMETIME AFTER 18Z AND  
POTENTIALLY IMPACT ALL TERMINALS, BUT LOCATION/TIMING REMAINS  
UNCERTAIN SO HAVE LEFT OUT OF THE TAFS FOR NOW. WILL UPDATE IN  
FUTURE ISSUANCE.  
 

 
   
SHORT TERM
 
 
(TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON)  
ISSUED AT 214 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022  
 
NO MAJOR CHANGES TO THE SHORT TERM PERIOD. THE UPPER RIDGE WILL  
EXTEND WESTWARD ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, AND TEMPERATURES EACH  
AFTERNOON WILL TICK A FEW DEGREES HIGHER THAN THE PREVIOUS DAY.  
FOR TODAY, WE'RE LOOKING AT HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 90S WITH  
100S PEAKING BACK INTO THE NE PERMIAN BASIN. AS THE CASE HAS BEEN  
EACH DAY OVER THE PAST WEEK, THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP  
IN THE AFTERNOON WITH THE GREATEST CHANCES BEING IN THE HIGHER  
TERRAIN. SIMILAR TO WHAT WE SAW MONDAY, MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL  
RESULT IN SOME BRIEF, HEAVY RAINFALL IN THESE STORMS RESULTING IN  
SOME LOCALIZED FLOODING. THIS, ALONG WITH GUSTY WINDS AND FREQUENT  
LIGHTNING, WILL BE THE MAIN CONCERNS FOR STORMS THIS AFTERNOON. I  
HAVE ADDED IN THE CHANCE FOR ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS FOR MUCH OF  
THE PERMIAN BASIN GIVEN A SIMILAR PATTERN THAT WE'VE SEEN THE PAST  
SEVERAL DAYS. STORMS SHOULD DIMINISH BY MIDNIGHT.  
 
ON WEDNESDAY, HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN TUESDAY  
WITH MORE WIDESPREAD TRIPLE DIGITS AS THE RIDGE CONTINUES ITS  
WESTWARD MOVEMENT. THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL ALSO SHIFT FURTHER  
WEST, ALTHOUGH THERE WILL REMAIN A DECENT CHANCE FOR STORMS  
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE GUADALUPE AND DELAWARE  
MNTS DOWN TOWARDS THE DAVIS MNTS AND MARFA PLATEAU.  
 

 
   
LONG TERM
 
 
(WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY)  
ISSUED AT 214 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022  
 
NOT A LOT OF DAY TO DAY CHANGE UNDER THE RIDGE. ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT  
THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WILL STILL BE CENTERED OVER THE SE US AS A  
TROUGH SITS OFF THE WA/OR COAST. THE RIDGE WILL BUILD WESTWARD  
THURSDAY ACROSS THE SW US WITH THE CENTER MIGRATING TO THE 4 CORNERS  
REGION FRIDAY. THE TROUGH WILL RIDE OVER THE TOP OF THE RIDGE  
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY MOVING ALONG THE CANADIAN BORDER. THE RIDGE  
WILL STRENGTHEN OVER THE WESTERN STATES NEXT WEEK AS THE TROUGH  
SWINGS DOWN ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES.  
 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE HOTTER ON THURSDAY WITH 100S SPREADING ACROSS  
THE PERMIAN BASIN AND TRANS PECOS. LOOK FOR HIGH TEMPS TO BE AT OR  
ABOVE THE CENTURY MARK ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA THROUGH THE WEEKEND  
INTO NEXT WEEK. LOWS IN THE 70S FOR ALL BUT A LUCKY FEW.  
 
STORM CHANCES BEGIN TO DECREASE THURSDAY INTO NEXT WEEK. WHAT FEW  
SHOWERS AND STORMS THAT DO DEVELOP WILL MAINLY BE OVER THE HIGHER  
ELEVATIONS.
