AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AMARILLO TX
258 AM CST SAT NOV 22 2014

.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL LOW OVER NORTHERN MEXICO WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE
EAST TODAY AND TONIGHT ACROSS SOUTHERN TEXAS. THINK THAT MOST
OF THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS FEATURE
WILL STAY SOUTHEAST OF OUR CWA. WILL KEEP DENSE FOG ADVISORY
GOING FOR THE EASTERN THIRD OF THE AREA THIS MORNING. LIGHT
WINDS AND MOISTURE ADVECTION WILL CONTINUE IN THIS AREA...SO
WOULD EXPECT TO SEE FOG EXPAND SOME.

AFTER THIS UPPER LOW MOVES OFF TO THE EAST OF TEXAS ANOTHER FAST
MOVING SHORT WAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE AREA. THIS
SHORT WAVE MAY BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF RAIN OR SNOW SHOWERS WITH IT
SUNDAY AND SUNDAY EVENING. MUCH COLDER AIR WILL FILTER INTO THE AREA
AS WELL BEHIND A CANADIAN COLD FRONT. HIGH TEMPERATURES MAY BE
REACHED SUNDAY MORNING WITH FALLING TEMPERATURES IN THE AFTERNOON.
THE LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE COMBINED WITH THE UPPER LEVEL LIFT MAY BE
JUST ENOUGH TO SQUEEZE OUT SOME LIGHT PRECIPITATION.

THE FLOW ALOFT WILL REMAIN NORTHWESTERLY THROUGH THE REST OF THIS
FORECAST WITH VERY LITTLE IF ANY DISTURBANCES MOVING THROUGH THE
FLOW. SO DRY LOOKS LIKE THE WAY TO GO. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL
MODERATE SOME NEXT WEEK TO AROUND OR JUST ABOVE NORMAL.
