AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
214 PM CST Sun Feb 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...
Upper low has tracked well to the s of the Rio Grande and will stay
there for about the next 48hrs. Meanwhile a cold front is moving
thru the CWFA attm with gusty ne winds and drier air in its wake.
7h-5h LR`s of 6.5-7 C/km across the far sw today still suggest isold
tstms are possible, especially with a minor shrtwv evident on water
vapor lifting ne toward the BB region. As the front moves into the
mtns areas of low clouds and fog will be possible on the east slopes
overnight. Surface ridging toward morning and dry air will favor a
cold morning, in fact probably the coldest morning since Jan 23
across the PB. Pressure falls will make the way for warmer temperatures
across the wrn 1/3 of CWFA, elsewhere temps will be similar to
today`s. Warmer wx will be more noticeable and widespread Tue/Wed
when 85h temps suggest highs back into the 60s and 70s, respectively.
Tue the said upper low will finally lift newd nearing the far Lower
Trans Pecos with a few SHRA possible there. A cold front will pass
quickly thru the area Wed night with breezy/windy conditions. It will
be much cooler Thur PM. Interesting that the ECMWF/Canadian 85h temps
are much colder than GFS. Another cold morning on Fri, widespread 20s.
Next Sat looks to be an unusually the warm day with 85h temps as high
as 18-20C, followed by a weak dry front Sun and a little warmer
Mon.
