.DISCUSSION...
While the generally dry pattern will continue tomorrow, south
winds may bring enough moisutre from the Gulf to initiate a few
isolated storms in the southeastern part of the area on Thursday.
Starting Friday the trough over the pacific northwest will deepen
as it moves across the western CONUS. Models are consistent with
increased moisture at both low and mid levels for the South
Plains. Onset of precip is a little delayed for previous runs
with a slight chance possible Saturday for the western half of the
area. Rain chances will become more widespread Sunday into
Monday. With plenty of moisture in place, storms that form could
produce heavy rainfall at times. Extensive cloud cover will keep
temperatures in the 70s on the Caprock starting Sunday. A front is
expected to push through Monday night bringing slightly cooler
temperatures. However, clouds and rain chances will linger through
Wednesday before drying out late in the week.
