morning along the I-10 corridor. However, will keep the TAFS VFR
for now. The winds will be south with gusts to 20 knots.
.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 451 AM CDT Sun Jul 5 2015/
(Today and Tonight)
An upper high was located over eastern New Mexico and western Texas
this morning, with the forecast area under weak northerly flow
aloft. The weather looks quiet the next 24 hours. Highs will be in
the lower to mid 90s with lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
(Monday through Saturday)
Rain chances will remain in the forecast for the first part of
the extended period. An upper level short wave will move across
the Northern Plains on Monday and will send a weak cold front
across northwest Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle during the day.
The front is expected to stall across northwest Texas Tuesday and
Tuesday night, before washing out on Wednesday. Showers and
thunderstorms will be possible along and ahead of the front, with
best rain chances favoring the Big Country counties, especially
Tuesday and Tuesday night. Additional storms may also develop farther
south along any outflow boundaries. The potential exists for locally
heavy rainfall, as precipitable waters range between 1.5 and 2.0
inches. The stalled front will wash out on Wednesday but still
cold see a few showers or storms mainly across northern counties
during the day.
Dry weather returns to the area late next week into the following
weekend as the upper ridge dominates.
