National Weather Service Amarillo TX
615 AM CDT SAT JUL 30 2016

There are a few lingering -shra in far southeast Collingsworth
Co. that will last another hour or so. Can`t rule out -tsra
moving into far OK/TX Panhandles this evening. Don`t expect TAF
sites to be affected as they should remain VFR through the period.
Winds will be out of south-southwest becoming gusty in the late
morning and afternoon hours.



.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 450 AM CDT SAT JUL 30 2016/

A stationary frontal boundary draped across the northeastern
Panhandles today will lift back to the north and east as a warm
front by tonight. Isolated convection will be possible across the
northeastern portions of the forecast area this afternoon and evening
near the frontal boundary. upper high over the Four
Corners Region will maintain a northwesterly flow aloft across the
forecast area today and tonight. Isolated convection will also be
possible over the northwestern portions of the Panhandles this
afternoon and this evening. The upper high forecast to build over the
Panhandles by Sunday and then over the Central Plains States by early
next week.

Drier and warmer conditions expected by late this weekend into early
next week. The Panhandles will be between an upper high over central
Texas and another upper high over the Four Corners during the first
half of next week. Convection should once again be possible across
the northwestern Panhandles Monday afternoon through Tuesday. Upper
high over the Southern Plains States becomes dominate late next week
over most of Texas and Oklahoma. The western periphery of the upper
high across the central and southern Rockies will allow for a more
southwesterly upper flow across the Panhandles late next week.
Convection is expected to develop across the southern Rockies and
should affect much of the western half of the forecast area Thursday
through late next week and also into next weekend.
