AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
345 AM CST Wed Nov 26 2014

.DISCUSSION...
Upper ridge centered over CA will build in from the west the next
several days.  The ridge will flatten out by the weekend with near
zonal flow across the country.  This will result in an extended
period of mild wx for the region with sunny days and clear nights.
See no hazards for those traveling across W TX or SE NM the next
few days.

Will start off the morning a little warmer as overnight wind has
kept temps elevated.  A weak front moves through today will be
mainly a wind shift as a surface ridge builds south into the area.
The wind will come around to the north around noon then quickly
veer around to the east by sunset.  The development of a new
leeside trough Thursday will result in a return to a south wind
and slightly warmer temperatures.  By Friday even warmer
conditions expected as highs climb into the 70s and stay that way
through the weekend.  The next cold front blows through Monday
with a return to more seasonable temperatures.

In the extended there is a chance of precipitation moving into the
area with an upper trough next Wednesday.  Until then the forecast
will remain dry.
