no aviation concerns for this taf period with VFR conditions and
south winds expected. A few high clouds will remain over the
region today with a scattered-broken diurnal cumulus field around 050. Winds may
briefly increase to around 15 kts this afternoon but will remain
south/southeast through the period.

Previous discussion... /issued 255 am CDT Wednesday Jun 3 2015/
an upper level high begins to build into the region from the
southwest today and will remain firmly planted over Texas through
early next week. Subsidence will dominate leading to mostly clear
skies with little to no chance of rain as a strong cap settles in
over the region. Generally light south to southeast winds will
prevail. Temperatures will continue their warming trend...cresting
over the weekend with highs in the lower 90s over most of north
central Texas. The heat index will be about 4 to 7 degrees higher
than the air temperatures...so it will certainly feel hot. High
clouds should increase on Monday as upper level moisture spreads
over the region from Pacific Hurricane Blanca landfalling near
Baja California. This may shave 1-2 degrees off of high temperatures Monday and
Tuesday...but otherwise will have no other effects on our weather.
The upper level ridge is forecast to weaken and slide off to the
west around the middle of next week...which may allow for some
diurnal air mass convection to develop by Wednesday. By late next
week...medium range guidance shows upper level troughing
developing over the state...which would certainly bring US
higher rain chances if these forecasts are accurate.
