AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
236 PM CST Mon Nov 17 2014

.DISCUSSION...
Visible satellite photos from this morning showed a band of snow
extending from central Culberson County, east along the southern
Ector and Midland County lines. Other areas of snow were along
I-20 east of Colorado City, near Andrews, and of course northern
Lea County and extreme northern Eddy County which may have seen
amounts exceed one inch. Clear skies though have made short work
of the snow as it all appears to have melted all but a few shaded
and drifted areas.

Increasingly zonal flow will keep skies clear for the next
several days and allow for temperatures to warm back to near
normal by late in the week. A weak upper trough will move across
the area Thursday but a stronger one will develop and move east
along the U.S./Mexico border arriving on Saturday. It is this
trough that will be the one to watch with models developing
showers and storms across the eastern Permian Basin and western
low rolling plains Friday night into Saturday. The trajectory from
this low will be west to east from southern California into Texas
so it will not bring much if any cooler air as it passes east. The
next shot of significantly colder air may not arrive until next
Monday when a ridge redevelops over the west coast and a central
plains trough deepens bringing a stronger front.
