AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
435 AM CDT Tue Aug 26 2014

.DISCUSSION...
Weak southwesterly upper level flow will continue into tomorrow
bringing low rain chances and slightly above normal temperatures
to west Texas and southeast New Mexico. An upper level low over
Nevada will move east into the Central Plains by Thursday.
Increasing instability ahead of the low will increase rain chances
beginning late Wednesday with low chance PoPs across much of the
area by Thursday. There is still model disagreement as to whether
or not an associated cold front will drop this far south but
consensus seems to keep it north of our CWA. Hopefully this won`t
have too big of an impact as there should be outflow boundaries
from convection along the front along with a surface trough to
provide a low level focus for afternoon storms to develop.
Temperatures will be slightly cooler Thursday and Friday mainly
due to precip and cloud cover with a return of warmer conditions
for the weekend as the upper trough moves off to the east.
