Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service San Angelo Texas
400 am CDT Tue Jul 28 2015

Short term...
(today and tonight)

Upper high pressure will be centered over Oklahoma through tonight
with the forecast area along its southwestern periphery. 850mb
thermal isotherms today will be similar to yesterday with associated
surface highs for the forecast area once again in the upper 90s to
around 102 degrees. Winds will be southerly 10 to 15 mph. Lows
tomorrow morning will be in the lower to mid 70s.

Long term...
(wednesday through tuesday)

Upper level ridge still on pace to shift to the north slightly for
Wednesday and Thursday and at least bring slightly cooler
temperatures to west central Texas. Should be able to bring most
of the areas that have been hitting 100 degrees down into the
upper 90s. Ridge recenters to the northwest for Friday and
Saturday, with northwest flow prevailing. This should at least
weaken the cap, with models suggesting some chance of afternoon
convection. Have continued the pops already in place. Models
suggest the ridge may remain just off the west for next week,
keeping conditions hot and dry.
