...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER THROUGH AT LEAST SUNDAY
BEFORE A PATTERN CHANGE BRINGS A CHANCE FOR RAIN NEXT WEEK...

                   ...METEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure continues to move eastward from the desert
southwest. This strong dome of high pressure is centered over
southwest Texas this morning, and as a result the weather across the
WGRFC area has been dry the past 24 hours.  This high will move across
south Texas today and will flatten out and shift to the northern Gulf
of Mexico by late Sunday.  As a result, we will see little change in
the dry conditions through the weekend for the WGRFC area, with
unseasonably warm temperatures expected.

By Monday the ridge of high pressure will be centered over Florida.
This will allow an upper level trough, which is currently located off
the Oregon coast, to move east.  As the trough crosses the Rockies on
Sunday night and Monday morning it will begin to impact the western
portions of the WGRFC forecast area.  This system may generate some
precipitation over southern Colorado starting late Sunday as a cold
front pushes into Colorado and New Mexico Sunday evening. Then this
front is expected to move eastward into north Texas by Tuesday and
will pass very slowly into central and northeast Texas by Wednesday
morning.  This front may bring increased chances for rain to northern
and eastern Texas later Tuesday through Wednesday.  At this point,
heavy rainfall is not expected, and the larger amounts of
precipitation are forecast northeast of our region. The progress of
the system will be monitored and updates will be provided throughout
the next several days.

By Thursday morning a new ridge of high pressure is forecast to
develop along and west of the Rocky Mountains. This will result in
dry conditions again for the WGRFC area starting Thursday, and a
return to more seasonal temperatures.

                    ...PRECIPITATION FORECAST...
For Today into Sunday morning, no significant Mean Areal
Precipitation (MAP) amounts are forecast for the WGRFC area.

For Sunday into Monday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.  MAP amounts of less than 0.25 of an
inch are forecast over southwestern Colorado.

For Monday into Tuesday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.  MAP amounts of less than 0.25 of an
inch are forecast over southern Colorado.

For Tuesday into Thursday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.  MAP amounts of less than 0.25 of an
inch are forecast over the eastern third of Texas and northern
Louisiana.

Moderate or worse drought conditions continue to be observed over
parts of New Mexico and Texas.  In Texas, about half the state is
experiencing moderate or worse drought (48%) and 11% has extreme to
exceptional drought. In New Mexico, nearly two thirds of the state
is experiencing moderate or worse drought (63%) and 8% has extreme
to exceptional drought. Since no significant rainfall is forecast
within the WGRFC forecast area through the next 5 days, no runoff is
expected.

                     ...HYDROLOGIC DISCUSSION...
...WGRFC Basins...
WGRFC river forecast points are currently near bankfull conditions.
Rainfall forecasted over the next five days will not cause mainstem
river flooding in the WGRFC area.

...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER THROUGH AT LEAST SATURDAY
BEFORE A PATTERN CHANGE BRINGS A LITTLE RAIN NEXT WEEK...

                   ...METEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

An upper level disturbance passed through the eastern parts of
the WGRFC area Thursday morning which brought some light rainfall
amounts to central and east Texas.  The showers associated with this
passing short wave trough moved eastward and exited Texas by
mid-day.  As this system moved east of the area, a ridge of high
pressure nudged in from the desert southwest.  This strong dome of
high pressure is centered over central New Mexico this morning.  This
high will move over Texas Saturday and will flatten out and shift to
the northern Gulf of Mexico by late Sunday.  As a result, today
through the weekend looks mostly dry for the WGRFC area with
unseasonably warm temperatures expected.

By Monday the ridge of high pressure will be centered over Florida.
This will allow an upper level trough, which will be located off the
Oregon coast Saturday, to move east.  As the trough crosses the
Rockies on Sunday night it will begin to impact the western portions
of the WGRFC forecast area.  This system may generate some
precipitation over southern Colorado starting late Sunday as a cold
front pushes into Colorado and New Mexico Sunday evening. This weak
front is expected to move east into north Texas by Tuesday and pass
very slowly into central and northeast Texas by Wednesday morning.
This front may bring increased chances for rain to northern and
eastern Texas later Tuesday into Wednesday.  At this point, heavy
rainfall is not expected and the larger amounts are forecast northeast
of our region. The progress of the system will be monitored and
updates will be provided throughout the next several days.

                    ...PRECIPITATION FORECAST...
For Today into Saturday morning, no significant Mean Areal
Precipitation (MAP) amounts are forecast for the WGRFC area.

For Saturday into Sunday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.

For Sunday into Monday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.  Light amounts of MAP of less than 0.25
of an inch are forecast over southwest Colorado.

For Monday into Wednesday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.  Light amounts of MAP of less than 0.25
of an inch are forecast over southern Colorado, as well as over the
eastern half of Texas and Louisiana.

Moderate or worse drought conditions continue to be observed over
parts of New Mexico and Texas.  In Texas, about half the state is
experiencing moderate or worse drought (48%) and 11% has extreme to
exceptional drought. In New Mexico, nearly two thirds of the state
is experiencing moderate or worse drought (63%) and 8% has extreme
to exceptional drought. Since no significant rainfall is expected for
most areas within the WGRFC forecast area through the next 5 days, no
runoff is expected.

                 VALID OCTOBER 23 THROUGH OCTOBER 28

...A BRIEF SPELL OF WARM DRY WEATHER EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND
WITH SOME RECORD HIGHS POSSIBLE...

                   ...METEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

As an upper level disturbance passed through the WGRFC from west to
east over the past 24 hours, some light rainfall amounts were
recorded. Offshore rains in deep south Texas left heavier amounts of
rainfall around Brownsville.  Scattered showers associated with this
passing short wave trough will continue eastward throughout the
morning eventually exiting Texas later today.

As this system exits the area, a subtropical high nudges in from the
desert southwest.  This strong dome of high pressure will be centered
over New Mexico by Friday afternoon. Friday through the weekend looks
mostly dry for the WGRFC area as this upper level ridge builds from
the west. With this high pressure ridge, unseasonably warm
temperatures are expected over the next three days with record
temperatures possible on Saturday.

As an upper level trough located off the Oregon coast moves east, it
will begin to impact the western portions of WGRFC forecast area.  A
transition to cooler weather is expected from this system as a cold
front pushes into New Mexico perhaps as early as Sunday evening. This
weak front is expected to pass slowly through the area bringing
increased chances for rain to north and far east Texas late Tuesday
into Wednesday evening.  The progress of the system will be monitored
and updates provided throughout the forecast period.

                    ...PRECIPITATION FORECAST...
For Today into Friday morning, no significant Mean Areal
Precipitation (MAP) amounts are forecast for the WGRFC area.

For Friday into Saturday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.

For Saturday into Sunday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.

For Sunday into Tuesday morning, no significant MAP amounts are
forecast for the WGRFC area.

Moderate or worse drought conditions continue to be observed over
parts of New Mexico and Texas.  In Texas, about half the state is
experiencing moderate or worse drought (48%) and 11% has extreme to
exceptional drought. In New Mexico, nearly two thirds of the state
is experiencing moderate or worse drought (63%) and 8% has extreme
to exceptional drought. No significant rainfall is expected for most
areas within the WGRFC forecast area through the next 5 days.

                     ...HYDROLOGIC DISCUSSION...
...Remainder of WGRFC Basins...
Rainfall continues around the Rio Grande area but the isolated nature
of the rainfall is keeping the threat of flooding to a minimum.  All
other WGRFC river forecast points are at or below bankfull conditions.
Rainfall forecasted in the next five days will not cause
mainstem river flooding in the WGRFC area.
