AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN ANGELO TX
337 AM CDT WED SEP 2 2015

.SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

Very little change expected from yesterday`s weather. An upper level
ridge stretching from northern Mexico into the southern plains will
remain in place, and possibly strengthen just a bit. With that in
mind, have gone with highs similar to Tuesday, and kept the forecast
dry. The Texas Tech WRF tries to generate some very isolated
convection this afternoon, and while this can`t be completely ruled
out, with basically no change in the pattern, think this scenario is
pretty unlikely. Similar reasoning was applied to overnight lows,
will go with persistent lows around the 70 degree mark.

.LONG TERM...
(Thursday through next Tuesday)

Near seasonal temperatures and dry conditions will continue
across the forecast area into the first of next week as an upper
level ridge continues to dominate our weather picture. An upper
level low over the Pacific Northwest toward the end of the week
will work its way over northern California by late Friday before
lifting northeast over the northern Rockies through this weekend.
An associated cold will push south into the Southern Plains by
early next week but should remain north of the forecast area
before dissipating. Have however introduced a slight chance of
convective activity over the extreme northwestern Big Country on
Tuesday to cover the southern extent of any frontal induced
convective activity over the Panhandle that may survive this far
south.
