.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 321 PM CST FRI DEC 26 2014/

.DISCUSSION...
A WAVE IS LIFTING NORTHEAST FROM THE ROCKIES INTO THE CENTRAL
PLAINS TODAY. MUCH OF THE PRECIPITATION THAT IS OBSERVED ON RADAR
IN THE EASTERN TEXAS PANHANDLE IS VIRGA AS LOW LEVELS REMAIN DRY
IN THE SOUTHEASTERN PANHANDLE. THERE IS A BIT MORE LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE IN THE NORTHEASTERN PANHANDLES AND NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA
AS EVIDENCED BY THE STRATUS... SO WILL KEEP CHANCE POPS THERE.
WILL ALSO KEEP CHANCE POPS EAST WHERE SOME LIGHT RAIN/DRIZZLE
DEVELOPMENT. BUT OVERALL FOR TONIGHT AND TOMORROW... IT DOES NOT
LOOK LIKE TOO SIGNIFICANT OF AN EVENT OVER THE AREA AND WILL
CONTINUE TO TREND OF DECREASING POPS AND EXPECTED PRECIPITATION
AMOUNTS.

THE OTHER MAIN WEATHER ISSUE IS EXPECTED TO BE THE SIGNIFICANTLY
COLDER WEATHER NEXT WEEK. THE FORECAST STILL LOOKS GOOD WITH THIS
AND DID NOT MAKE ANY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE EXTENDED.
