AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
338 AM CST Thu Mar 5 2015

.DISCUSSION...
Upper level trough axis approaching the region with precipitation
occurring east of the forecast area across central and east Texas.
Due to the precipitation ending, have canceled the Winter Weather
Advisory that was in effect for southeast New Mexico and much of
west Texas. Have also canceled the High Wind Warning for Guadalupe
Pass due to recent trends.

Strong and cold surface high pressure centered across the
southern high plains will be the main weather feature through
Sunday. NAM guidance indicating considerable cloudiness
with weak upslope flow through Saturday. Temperatures should
continue well below normal through the weekend due to the
influence of the cold surface high and clouds expected.

A weak and slow moving upper level trough will approach the
region Sunday and could provide a slight chance of showers
to the Big Bend. The upper level trough axis will be very
slow to leave the region early next week but precipitation
chances should remain east of the forecast area, east of the
trough axis, next Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures may finally
warm to near normal values by Tuesday due to weak surface
trough formation across northeast New Mexico. Above normal
and dry conditions expected next Wednesday and possibly
Thursday as the surface trough strengthens.
