AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
340 AM CST Fri Nov 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...
Will start the day with an upper ridge centered over the western
U.S. with an upper trough along the East Coast.  This ridge will
build east the next few days flattening out with flow becoming zonal
across the county.  Look for unseasonably mild wx to continue
through the weekend.

Have removed mention of patchy fog this morning... not looking
likely as temp/dewpt spread too large as wind has stayed up and
limited nocturnal cooling.

A surface trough extending down from CO across the area will produce
a warm S/SW wind today across the area.  The combination of sunny
days... clear nights... and dry air will result in large diurnal
temperature swings today through Sunday... lows in the 30s/40s and highs
in the 70s.

A mid level trough moving across the Rockies Monday will push a cold
front through the area bringing colder wx to the region.  Fropa
looks windy with a tight pressure gradient...  have increased winds
and decreased temps.  Front should hit northern CWA around
midnight... push well into the area by sunrise Monday and then be
pushing toward the Mexican border by midday.  Temperatures begin to
recover quickly Tuesday as the wind comes back around to the south
with conditions warming through the end of the week.
