.DISCUSSION...
IT LOOKS TO BE A FAIRLY QUIET NEXT 7 DAYS ACROSS THE PANHANDLES.
THE COLD FRONT WHICH PASSED THROUGH THE AREA EARLIER TODAY HAS
BROUGHT CONSIDERABLE NORTH WINDS...LOW CLOUDS AND NOTABLY COOL
TEMPERATURES FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR...WITH NORTHERN PARTS OF THE CWA
SEEING TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S AT 4 PM ON A JULY AFTERNOON. THE
AIRMASS APPEARS TO BE TOO STABLE TO SEE ANY FURTHER CONVECTION WORK
ITS WAY INTO THE PANHANDLES THIS EVENING...SO HAVE ONLY CARRIED VERY
SLIGHT POPS WHERE INSTABILITY GREATEST THIS AFTERNOON. AN UPPER-LEVEL
RIDGE TO OUR WEST AND NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL DOMINATE THE SYNOPTIC
PATTERN ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH THE WEEKEND...WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE
FOR MOUNTAIN CONVECTION TO MAKE IT INTO THE WESTERN PART OF THE
PANHANDLES EACH AFTERNOON/EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY. THEN THE RIDGE
FLATTENS OUT AND SPREADS EASTWARD THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.

AT THE TAIL END OF THIS FORECAST PACKAGE...FORECAST MODELS HINT AT A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE WEST AND BRINGING ANOTHER SHOT
AT RAIN AND COOLER TEMPERATURES FOR THE SECOND HALF OF NEXT WEEK.
TEMPERATURES WILL WARM THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND REMAIN NEAR SEASONAL
NORMS.
