PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 340 PM CDT Mon May 25 2015/
(Tonight and Tuesday)
Busy with QLCS convection most of the day so discussion will be
Area of convection has pushed east and southeast and out of
the area this afternoon. Thus, have canceled the Tornado Watch
and Flash Flood Watch early. Should be a relatively quiet evening
and overnight. Weak dryline and a weak shortwave pushes into the
area on Tuesday afternoon. Low level moisture will remain
plentiful and instability will not be a problem, but getting any
convergence on the dryline or enough might be. Area is outlooked in
the SPC day 2 outlook for the risk and not going to argue with
that one today. Have kept the slight chance PoPs in place.
(Wednesday through Monday)
Chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue through much of
the week. Mean upper trough remains to the west, with a series of
shortwaves rotating across the Southern Plains. Given the unstable
air mass and not much in the way of any capping, will be hard to
rule out storms on just about any time period. However, appears
the best chances will be Thursday, Thursday Night, and Friday as
the next strong shortwave comes out across West Central Texas.
Looks to be a potent wave, with widespread convection possible and
the potential for severe weather and flooding once again.
