AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN ANGELO TX
326 PM CDT Sat Jul 4 2015

.SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Tomorrow)

An upper high continues to dominate the southwestern states this
afternoon with the forecast area remaining on its eastern periphery
under a northwest flow aloft. Will  continue with a slight chance of
showers and thunderstorms this evening over the northeast Big
Country. The center of the upper high is forecast to move to the
southeast through tomorrow with its center over West Texas by late
tomorrow. The forecast area will come under a more northerly flow
aloft as the northwest flow aloft shifts a little more to our east
concomitant with the movement of the upper low. Consequently, a dry
forecast is on tap for the area tomorrow.

Overnight lows will be similar to this morning with lower 70s in
most locations. Expect highs tomorrow ranging from the lower 90s
over the southern CWA to the mid 90s over the northern CWA.

.LONG TERM...
(Monday through Saturday)

the pattern begins to change on Monday as the ridge to the west
weakens...allowing a shortwave trough to dive southward into west
Texas. In addition...a weak cold front will make a push southward
into the Panhandle and northwest Texas. We will see a slight
chance of rain for western counties by Monday afternoon....but the
better precip chance will be Tuesday into early Wednesday as the
boundary hangs up just north the area, and storms send outflow
boundaries further south to kick off additional storms. Have kept
the highest rainfall amounts across the Big Country for Tuesday
into Wednesday, but most areas could see at least a little rain by
mid week. Upper ridge builds back into the southern Plains by
Thursday to the end of the week...with warm and dry weather
returning.
