.DISCUSSION...

A HOT AND DRY WORK WEEK WILL GIVE WAY TO A MUCH MORE POTENTIALLY WET
PATTERN BY THE FRIDAY INTO NEXT WEEKEND.

THIS AFTERNOON...
RECORD BREAKING TEMPERATURES ARE BEING NOTED IN MANY AREAS WITH
AMARILLO ALREADY HITTING 103F. A DRYLINE FEATURE HAS SET UP FROM
ROUGHLY PERRYTON TO PAMPA. EAST OF THIS LINE...A FEW STORMS MAY FIRE
IN THE NEXT FEW HRS. GIVEN 1000-1500 J/KG MLCAPE AND 30-35 KTS BULK
SHEAR...ANY ISOLATED STORMS WILL HAVE A GOOD CHANCE AT BECOMING
SEVERE WITH SOME HAIL TO THE SIZE OF HALF DOLLARS AND A DOWNBURST OR
2.

MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...
THESE DAYS WILL BE HOT AND MAINLY DRY.

FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...
INCREASING MOISTURE THROUGHOUT THE COLUMN WILL LIKELY LEAD TO ROUNDS
OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WITH ANY WEAK WAVE THAT PASSES THROUGH. THE
TROPICS WILL NEED AN EYE KEPT ON THEM AS ANY SYSTEMS IN THE GULF OR
ERN PACIFIC COULD ADD EVEN MORE MOISTURE TO OUR PATTERN.
