.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AMARILLO TX/

DISCUSSION...

AFTER QUITE THE WARM DAY ACROSS THE SOUTH PLAINS...A WEAK COLD
FRONT IS MAKING ITS WAY SOUTH ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THIS
AFTERNOON. BEHIND THIS COLD FRONT...SURFACE WINDS WILL TURN TO
THE NORTH WITH SOMEWHAT COOLER AIR FILTERING IN ACROSS THE AREA.
HIGH CLOUDS WILL REMAIN THIS EVENING AND INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS
BEFORE DISSIPATING BY SUNRISE WITH LOWS IN THE 40S AND LOWER 50S
EXPECTED.

COOLER AND CONTINUED DRY WEATHER CAN BE EXPECTED BEHIND THE COLD
FRONT ON FRIDAY BEFORE CLOUD COVER BEGINS TO INCREASE ON SATURDAY.
HIGHS NEAR TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS CAN BE EXPECTED ON
FRIDAY. MOISTURE WILL SLOWLY RETURN TO THE AREA ON SATURDAY AS AN
UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES ACROSS THE REGION. IF ENOUGH
MOISTURE CAN MAKE ITSELF AVAILABLE...THINK A FEW SHOWERS COULD
DEVELOP ON SATURDAY MAINLY WEST OF INTERSTATE 27. THE CHANCE FOR
ANY PRECIPITATION WILL BE BRIEF AS CHANCES WILL DECREASE
SIGNIFICANTLY SATURDAY NIGHT.

QUIET AND DRY WEATHER LOOKS TO REMAIN OVER THE AREA SUNDAY THROUGH
AT LEAST TUESDAY AS AN UPPER LEVEL LOW OVER BAJA CALIFORNIA SLOWLY
BEGINS TO MOVE TOWARDS THE AREA. DURING THIS TIME FRAME...BOTH
HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOVE NORMAL WITH HIGHS IN THE
70S AND LOWS IN THE 50S. THE NEXT BEST CHANCE OF RAIN LOOKS TO BE
WEDNESDAY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK AS THE ABOVE MENTIONED UPPER LOW
WILL HELP SPARK SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE AREA.
