SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight) 
Very hot and dry conditions will be the theme for West Central 
Texas for the upcoming week. High pressure will strengthen over 
the region today. Increasing large scale subsidence combined with 
dry air will keep shower and storm chances to a minimum. Expect 
mostly sunny skies in the afternoon, with highs climbing into the 
upper 90s to around 102 degrees. Overnight lows will be in the mid
to upper 70s.

LONG TERM...
(Tuesday through next Monday)
Temperatures are still expected to heat up significantly in the 
extended forecast. The southwestern U. S. ridge will be in the 
process of expanding across Texas by Tuesday. As we move through 
the week, the ridge will amplify and expand across more of the 
western CONUS. The only small change for the extended was to 
continue to warm temperatures a couple degrees each day. With high
temperatures potentially between 105 and 110 degrees, Heat 
Advisories are likely to be needed, and record temperatures may be
set. Not only are record highs in general, but overnight record 
high minimums will also be in jeopardy.
