AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
134 PM CDT Fri Oct 31 2014

.DISCUSSION...
An upper ridge moving over the area will continue the mild wx for
the region the next few days.  Out west the next upper trough moving
over the California coast today will bring a chance of storms to the
area late in the weekend as it moves east.  Once this trough slowly
passes by high pressure will return for the end of next week.

An East wind this afternoon will slowly veer around to the SE
overnight.  Have had windy conditions at GDP all day as the pressure
gradient pushes through.  Tonight expect mostly clear skies and a
light wind that may result in significant radiational cooling.
Could see portions of the northern CWA along with the Marfa Plateau
drop into the 30s by morning.  Should see some high clouds overnight
for SE NM and western Permian Basin that will help keep temps from
falling too far.  Expect lows in the 40s along and south of the
Pecos river.  Temps recover quickly Saturday into the 60s and 70s as
the wind returns to the South.  Temperatures continue to warm Sunday
and Monday before the next cold front blows throw the area early
Tuesday.  This will knock highs back into the 60s before warming
toward the weekend.

Have rain chances entering the forecast Sunday for the west with the
approach of the upper trough... with chances spreading east across
the area the next few days.  Currently Monday night and Tuesday
looks to have the best chance of rainfall.
