.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 249 AM CDT SUN SEP 18 2016/

DISCUSSION...
A strong upper level jet over the South Plains created favorable
shear and instability Saturday for a rather large severe weather
event for our CWA, especially given the time of year. However this
jet is moving off to the east and will be replaced by a building
ridge which will greatly diminish rain chances this upcoming week.
Highs today and Monday will be well above normal, then will
decrease by midweek as a deepening west coast trough weakens the
ridge over Texas. The trough will move into the Rocky Mountains
Friday and could bring our next decent rain chances by next
weekend.
