DISCUSSION...

An upper low is over north Texas/southern Oklahoma with mostly zonal 
flow over much of the country. Northerly surface winds remain across 
the area today with a surface high centered across eastern portions 
of the CWA. High temperatures today will be coolest across the 
Western Low Rolling Plains, far eastern Permian Basin, and portions 
of the southern CWA where clouds are lingering. 

An upper trough will move over the Pacific Northwest on Sunday; 
otherwise, the upper pattern will be similar to today. Temperatures 
will warm up a little from today with highs mostly in the 80s, 
except across the far eastern Permian Basin and Western Low Rolling 
Plains that are closest to the surface high. The previously 
mentioned upper trough begins to move over the Northern Plains with 
a surface trough developing across the higher terrain of southeast 
New Mexico and West Texas on Monday. This will result in 
temperatures on Monday warming up into the 80s and 90s across the 
area. The upper trough will expand to cover much of the country on 
Tuesday with temperatures across the CWA warming up a few degrees. A 
cold front pushes into the area on Wednesday and chances of showers 
and thunderstorms increase along this front. High temperatures 
Wednesday will depend on the timing of the front but will likely 
cool into the 70s and 80s. Rain chances decrease and temperatures 
warm up a little on Thursday as southerly surface winds return to 
the area. This warming trend continues into next weekend with a 
slight chance of showers and thunderstorms across portions of the 
area.
