Discussion...
not much change expected in the forecast through the end of the
week. An upper high will remain centered near The Four Corners
region leaving West Texas and southeastern New Mexico in a slight
northwesterly upper flow. Subsidence on the southeastern side of
this high will put a cap on most convection with the best rain
chances occurring in the orographically favored Davis and
Guadalupe Mountains as well as southeastern New Mexico and the
northern Permian Basin where outflows from convection farther
north may provide enough forced ascent. Early next week the high
will drift slightly east creating a more westerly upper flow
causing temperatures to climb a few degrees. Rain chances will
also diminish as subsidence increases.
