Discussion (27 June 2018)

An upper level high has taken over the region which will result in dry and warm weather conditions through the rest of the week. We will see temperatures in triple digits each day this week for the Trans-Pecos while the Concho Valley will be +/- a degree or two of triple digits. An upper level trough will develop on Friday across the Pacific Northwest and push east throughout the day. This will bring southwesterly flow aloft to Far West Texas Friday evening and into the overnight hours. Without moisture in place, I dont think well see any rain chances Friday evening or Friday night. With better upper level support on Saturday, a few showers/storms are possible along a weak dryline. Storms will be confined to the Trans-Pecos region first starting over the higher terrain areas and moving onto the adjacent plains. This will be possible on Sunday and Monday as well. The ECWMF and GFS are not real aggressive with this convection, but well see how the high-res models handle it later this week. I did mention rain chances in the extended for all three days for the Trans-Pecos with a mention of rain chances for the western counties of the WTWMA target area. Forecast may need adjusted later though, as the Concho Valley scenario is looking more and more unlikely.
