AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
247 PM CST Sun Nov 23 2014

.DISCUSSION...As of 2:45 PM CST Sunday...Sunny and breezy/windy
conditions continue across West Texas and Southeast New Mexico this
afternoon. Temperatures are quite mild...mainly in the 60s and 70s
across the Plains with 50s in the mountains. A dry cold front is
moving south out of the Panhandle.

Strong winds will continue thru the aftn in the Plains...therefore
have left the Wind Advisory as is. The High Wind Warnings for the
mountain locations will continue thru the evening hours...however
not very confident with this as the models decrease the winds thru
the evening hours as the sfc gradient relaxes.

A couple of dry cold fronts will keep temps below normal for the
beginning of the work week. Flat ridging...along with lee side sfc
troughing along the Front Range will bring low level southwest
downslope flow to the area starting on Wednesday. Temps will
warm to near normal Wednesday...with above normal temps from
Thanksgiving right thru next weekend. With this pattern no
precipitation is expected for the next week...at least.
