AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
356 AM CDT WED JUN 24 2015

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER RIDGE CENTERED OVER OK THIS MORNING WILL SLIDE EAST DURING
THE DAY.  THE CENTER OF RIDGE WILL REFORM BACK TO THE WEST ON
THURSDAY NEAR 4 CORNERS REGION AS HIGH PRESSURE STRENGTHENS OVER THE
WESTERN U.S AND A TROUGH DEEPENS OVER THE EAST.  THIS LOOKS TO PUT
THE AREA INTO NW FLOW ALOFT WHICH COULD BRING A CHANCE OF STORMS TO
THE REGION OVER THE WEEKEND.

TEMPERATURES WILL BE ON A SLOW CLIMB THROUGH FRIDAY AS WILL HAVE A
SLIGHT INCREASE IN 850 MB TEMPS THE NEXT FEW DAYS.  MODELS CONTINUE
TO BRIDGE A WEAK FRONT INTO THE AREA SATURDAY SO IT SHOULD BE A FEW
DEGREES COOLER OVER THE WEEKEND AS THE WIND COMES AROUND TO THE
EAST.  WARMER TEMPS RETURN EARLY NEXT WEEK.

WILL HAVE A CHANCE OF STORMS THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS MAINLY OVER THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS.  A SOUTHEAST WIND TODAY WILL RESULT IN A SOMEWHAT
UPSLOPE FLOW... AND GIVEN GOOD LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND DAYTIME
HEATING SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO GENERATE STORMS OVER AND NEAR THE
MOUNTAINS.  MODELS DEVELOP DECENT AMOUNTS OF QPF SO THOSE WHO SEE
STORMS MAY HAVE LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN.  RAIN CHANCES INCREASE FOR THE
PLAINS OVER THE WEEKEND AS POSSIBILITY OF DISTURBANCES MOVING DOWN
THE EAST SIDE OF THE UPPER RIDGE AND INTO THE REGION.
