AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN ANGELO TX
340 PM CST Wed Feb 25 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A broad upper trough continues across the central us with a series
of weak shortwaves rotating around the trough. Temperatures today
have rebounded back into the 60s with clear skies and westerly
winds. for tonight...another shortwave trough will head southward
across the Central Plains bringing a cold front through the area
tonight. Temperatures will drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s
tonight with gusty north winds. A little light snow may develop
across the Panhandle and western New Mexico late tonight...but
confidence is low that it will make it this far south. Any snow
that develops will likely be very light and not cause any
significant travel issues. Highs will be cooler on Thursday with
cold air advection and increased cloud cover.

An active pattern continues through the weekend into early next
week. Another weak shortwave will bring a chance of precipitation
to mainly northern areas again Thursday night. Temperature
profiles show snow as the predominant precipitation type. Expect
amounts to be relatively light...possibly a half inch or less
across the far north. Light snow will continue Friday and Friday
night with total accumulations up to 1 inch possible. Temperatures
start to warm up for the weekend with highs in the 50s and 60s by
Saturday. Will continue with a slight chance of precip through
Tuesday as weak disturbances continue to move across the area in
the southwest flow aloft. With temperatures above
freezing...expect the precipitation to fall as light rain.
