AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AMARILLO TX

.DISCUSSION...
A COLD FRONT LOCATED ACROSS THE NORTHERN TEXAS PANHANDLE EARLY THIS
MORNING WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SLOWLY SOUTH TODAY. SOME LOW CLOUDS
AND PATCHY FOG WILL ONCE AGAIN BE POSSIBLE THIS MORNING UNTIL AROUND
15Z OR SO TODAY ACROSS MAINLY THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE TEXAS
PANHANDLE. THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO PUSH SOUTH OF THE FORECAST AREA
BY TONIGHT AS A COOL SURFACE RIDGE BUILDS SOUTHWEST INTO THE
PANHANDLES. THE SURFACE RIDGE WILL BRING SOME DRIER AND MORE STABLE
AIR INTO THE PANHANDLES FROM THE NORTHEAST ALLOWING FOR ANY
CONVECTION TODAY TO END FROM NORTHEAST TO SOUTHWEST TONIGHT. AN UPPER
RIDGE WILL BUILD IN OVER THE PANHANDLES TODAY AND TONIGHT WHICH WILL
DEAMPLIFY MONDAY AS AN UPPER TROUGH APPROACHES FROM THE ROCKIES EARLY
THIS WEEK. THIS SHOULD KEEP A FAIRLY ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS
THE FORECAST AREA FOR MUCH OF THIS WEEK WITH CHANCES FOR CONVECTION
POSSIBLE THROUGH AT LEAST THE END OF THE WEEK. THE UPPER FLOW
TRANSITIONS TO NORTHWESTERLY BY THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK AS THE UPPER
RIDGE REBUILDS OVER THE INTERMOUNTAIN REGION. A SURFACE LOW AND
ASSOCIATED TROUGH DEVELOPS OVER THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES BY TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY WHICH WILL DEEPEN BY MID WEEK. BREEZY DOWNSLOPING
SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS TUESDAY AND AGAIN POSSIBLY BY FRIDAY AND
SATURDAY.
