AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
150 PM CDT Sun Mar 22 2015

.DISCUSSION...
As the upper low that brought rain to the area moves off to the
east... high pressure aloft will build into the region.  This will
provide warm and dry wx for the region the next few days.  The next
upper trough will swing across the Southern Rockies on Thursday
and into the area early Friday.

Sunny skies stretch across the area this afternoon as temperatures
climb rapidly into the 70s.  Temps will fall tonight into the 40s and
50s.  With wet ground from recent rain and clear skies overnight could
see patchy fog Monday morning mainly east and along the Pecos River
Valley.  The combination of an upper ridge and W/SW surface wind
will push temps up into the 80s Monday.  These warm readings will
continue Tuesday and Wednesday.  Guidance looks a little too warm
after rain so have gone slightly under.  A cold front moves through
late Wednesday so should be cooler Thursday... but conditions warm
quickly Friday through the weekend.  Fropa may be pretty windy...
will have to monitor possible high wind event through GDP.

Forecast looks dry through most of the week... long range models try
to skirt the area mid week with a few showers or storms but not
expecting much.  Will have to watch next trough to see if becomes a
rain producer or not.
