AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
223 PM CDT Thu Mar 26 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A nice and quiet weekend is expected with a dry northwesterly flow
aloft regime in place. Much above normal temperatures are expected
for most areas due to the formation of surface lee troughing with
downslope flow and mostly clear skies.

An upper level trough digging across the the plains will push
a cold front south into the forecast area either Sunday or
Monday. Obviously this front could impact the high temperature
forecast for Sunday, so later shifts will need to monitor.
Either way temperatures will only get bumped back to near
normal values by Monday. A weak and quick southern stream Pacific
storm system looks in the offing late Monday resulting in a
slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Behind this system zonal flow is forecast with much above normal
temperatures developing again next Tuesday through Thursday as
another surface lee trough forms with downslope and low
level thermal ridging anticipated.
