AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
329 PM CST Sat Nov 22 2014

.DISCUSSION...

A series of equipment failures during this morning`s thunderstorm activity
(and the needed 0.20" of rain) set things back some, but this is
what we know now. The cold core of the upper low sits just about
overhead. With the exit of the strong lower latitude system and
merger over the Midwestern States, strong cyclogenesis will occur,
and that will entail strong northwesterly winds across much of the
Permian Basin, the upper trans Pecos, and the southeastern New
Mexican plains Sunday. We`ve left the high wind watch up for the
Guadalupe and Davis Mountains areas for now. We`ve also left the
decision to fire up high wind warnings across the plains as well
depending on the strength of the surface pressure gradient. These
winds will subside Sunday night.

After this round of weather...nothing but sunny skies and above normal
temperatures through at least Black Friday. Chances for precip are about
nil and winds will remain out of the west to northwest. In fact, high
temp forecasts for Thanksgiving Day may be warmer than forecast,
if the new incoming data is close to being correct. A beautiful
week, certainly something to be thankful for.
