.DISCUSSION...
The center of the upper level high pressure system is found from the
Texas Panhandle into south central Kansas this morning. This high
should keep any shower and thunderstorm activity to our west again
today. The northwest edge of the upper level ridge will break down
some on Friday. This may allow a few showers and thunderstorms to
move into the northwest sections of the CWA.

The upper level ridge will weaken further Saturday through Tuesday.
Weak upper level short wave troughs will try to move through the
ridge over the panhandles during this time. These may be strong
enough to help produce some showers and thunderstorms.

The upper level ridge will then move to the west and this will put
the panhandles in a northwest flow aloft by Wednesday. This flow will
tend to bring any showers and thunderstorms that form over the
southern Rockies this way. So will keep pops in the forecast.

Temperatures will be the warmest through about Saturday and then
they should decrease a little as the upper level ridge breaks down
and moves back to the west.
