AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
329 AM CST Mon Nov 24 2014

.DISCUSSION...
Winds have finally subsided across the area this morning as a belt
of stronger mid level winds has moved off to the east. A weak
upper trough will move out of New Mexico and across west Texas
today doing little other than briefly shift winds from the north
and bring a weak reinforcement of cooler air.

The trend the remainder of the week will be towards a more zonal
flow providing a steady warming trend into the weekend. Saturday
will likely be the warmest day across the area ahead of a cold
front expected sometime on Sunday. The biggest uncertainty
regarding this front will be that the supporting upper trough will
remain well north of the surface front moving along the
U.S./Canadian border. This is reflected in the ECMWF being slower
than the GFS and it is possible this front doesn`t arrive at all,
becoming stationary in the Texas Panhandle. For now will only show
a modest cooling for Sunday until confidence increases in the
behavior of this front.
