.DISCUSSION...
COLD FRONT CURRENTLY STRETCHES FROM NORTHERN DEAF SMITH COUNTY
THROUGH AMARILLO NORTHEAST INTO THE FAR NORTHEAST TEXAS
PANHANDLE. HAVE INCREASED POPS FOR THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING
ALONG THIS FRONT GIVEN THE INSTABILITY ALONG IT. POPS WILL BE
HIGHEST ACROSS THE NORTHWEST HALF OF THE CWA OVERNIGHT AS
MOISTURE RETURNS TO THIS REGION ABOVE THE SURFACE BOUNDARY. THE
SUBTROPICAL PLUME WILL ALSO BE FOUND ACROSS THIS REGION. THE BEST
DYNAMICS WILL ALSO BE FOUND ACROSS THE NORTHERN CWA. SOME OF THE
STORMS MAY BE SEVERE WITH LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS THE MAIN
THREATS. HEAVY RAIN MAY ALSO CAUSE AREAS OF FLOODING AS STORM
MOTIONS WILL BE SLOW.

UPPER DYNAMICS WILL CONTINUE TO BE MOST FAVORABLE ACROSS THE
NORTHERN CWA THROUGH THURSDAY...SO WILL KEEP HIGHEST POPS THERE.

FLOW ALOFT THEN BECOMES NORTHWEST FOR FRIDAY AND BEYOND. SO WE WILL
HAVE DAILY CHANCES OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MOVING THIS WAY FROM
THE MOUNTAINS.
