Short term...
(today and tonight)

The quiet weather will continue through the next 24 hours.
Currently, we are on the eastern side of a anticyclonic flow
centered roughly from the western Texas Panhandle south/southwest
through southern New Mexico, and south into Chihuahua. This will
keep our forecast dry with large scale subsidence and dry air aloft.
So, no precipitation is expected, but we may see a few afternoon
clouds. Have gone with highs similar to yesterday, mainly mid to
upper 90s. Lows tonight will mainly be in the low to mid 70s, but a
few lows in the 60s will be possible in southern valley areas.


Long term...
(wednesday through monday)

An upper level ridge across the forecast area will remain in place
into early next while gradually increasing in strength. As a
consequence, look for dry weather continuing with afternoon highs
in the lower to mid 90s, a few degrees warmer than seasonal norms.
Morning lows in the lower 70s will be near seasonal norms.
