 A Massive mid-upper level ridge of high pressure is centered
over SE NM & W TX this morning. This blocking ridge is 
squashing any hope of the monsoon developing. It is also
responsible for producing our current heat wave.

Widespread High Temps Of 110 Today.


Excessive heat is once again expected across all of SE NM
and W TX today and tomorrow. High temps are forecast to
to be very near, or above 110 today, and 107 - 109 on Monday.

Tropical Outlook.


This tropical disturbance has a 20% chance of developing 
into a tropical storm within 48 hours. It is forecast to cross
over the Yucatan Peninsula today and into the Bay of 
Campeche on Monday, where conditions will be more
 favorable for development. 

Valid At 9 AM MDT Tuesday, June 28, 2011.

This mornings 12Z/6 AM MDT run of the WRF-NAM
model picks up on the tropical disturbance crossing
over the Yucatan Peninsula today, and emerging into
the Bay of Campeche on Monday.

It then forecasts this potential Tropical Storm to move
slowly northward, hugging the Mexican Coast this up
coming week. There still remains a lot of unknowns 
with the future strength, and track of this potential
Tropical Storm next week.
