WILL REMAIN VFR.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 441 AM CDT FRI JUL 25 2014/

DISCUSSION...TODAY THROUGH NEXT FRIDAY

HOT HOT HOT LEADS TO WET WET WET IN THIS FORECAST PERIOD.

TODAY AND SATURDAY...
BOTH THESE DAYS WILL BE VERY HOT AND MOSTLY DRY. HIGHS WILL PUSH 100
IN MOST AREAS, BUT PROBABLY NOT CROSS IT IN THE SW TX PANHANDLE WHERE
THINGS ARE STILL SO GREEN.

SUNDAY THROUGH NEXT WEEK...
PRECIP CHANCES WILL RAMP UP BEGINNING IN THE NORTHWEST PANHANDLES
LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON. BY SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY PRECIP CHANCES
RAMP UP RAPIDLY TO HIGH CHANCE POPS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE AREA BY
MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.  HEAVY RAIN AND FLASH
FLOODING WILL LIKELY BECOME A THREAT THIS WEEK AND ISOLATED SEVERE
WEATHER IS ALSO EXPECTED. IT IS STILL DIFFICULT TO PIN DOWN EXACT
TIMING OF CONVECTIVE ROUNDS, BUT MULTIPLE ROUNDS ARE EXPECTED.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOL AS CLOUD COVER WILL BE EXTENSIVE NEXT
WEEK.
