AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AMARILLO TX
252 PM CDT WED JUL 29 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY FORM ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST HALF OF THE
TEXAS PANHANDLE DUE TO THE INSTABILITY FROM THE HEAT OF THE DAY.
BUT BELIEVE THE BEST CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
OVERNIGHT WILL BE ACROSS THE NORTHWEST HALF OF THE CWA CLOSER TO
THE UPPER LEVEL DYNAMICS AND SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE PLUME.

AN UPPER LEVEL SHORT WAVE TROUGH OVER CENTRAL NEW MEXICO IS
EXPECTED TO SLOWLY LIFT NORTH AND NORTHEAST AND THEN IT WILL
SLIDE EASTWARD ACROSS OUR NORTHERN CWA THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO
THURSDAY NIGHT. SO A BETTER CHANCE OF RAIN WILL BE FOUND ACROSS
THESE AREAS DURING THIS TIME FRAME.

UPPER FLOW BECOMES MORE NORTHWESTERLY FRIDAY AND BEYOND...SO DAILY
CHANCES OF MOUNTAIN CONVECTION HEADING THIS WAY IS IN THE CARDS
THROUGH THE END OF THIS FORECAST.
