.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL SHIFT EAST OF THE AREA TODAY...WITH SW
FLOW ALOFT HELPING TO KEEP TEMPERATURES A FEW DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. SURFACE HIGH WILL PUSH INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
TONIGHT... WITH COOLER EASTERLY FLOW PULLING TEMPS BACK DOWN TO
NEAR NORMAL FOR TOMORROW. A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MAY
BRING A FEW SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS
LATE TOMORROW AS WELL.

A MORE POWERFUL UPPER TROUGH MOVES INTO THE INTER-MOUNTAIN REGION
BY SUNDAY. WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 30 MPH ACROSS OUR AREA
SUNDAY AFTERNOON WITH HIGHER GUSTS EXPECTED. WINDS WILL DIMINISH
ON MONDAY AS THE TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE AREA. SOME MOISTURE WILL
SURGE NORTHEAST JUST AHEAD OF THE UPPER TROUGH. THIS WILL BRING
ANOTHER CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE AREA SUNDAY NIGHT...MOSTLY
OVER THE SOUTHERN DESERT. THE CHANCES WILL CONTINUE MONDAY INTO
TUESDAY MORNING...MAINLY OVER FAR WEST TEXAS.
