DISCUSSION...
THE PANHANDLES HAS BEEN RELATIVELY VOID OF STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AS A
COLD FRONT HAVE MOVED SOUTHWARD INTO NORTHWESTERN TEXAS. AS RESULT,
PRECIP CHANCES HAVE BEEN TRIMMED BACK TO ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR
STORMS MOVING IN FROM THE EASTERN NEW MEXICO PLAINS LATE TONIGHT.

UPPER LEVEL FLOW BECOMES MORE NORTHERLY ON SATURDAY WHICH SHOULD KEEP
THE MAJORITY OF THE PANHANDLES RAIN FREE EXCEPT FOR THE FAR WESTERN
PANHANDLES. INSTABILITY WILL BE LIMITED SO ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS
SHOULD REMAIN BELOW STRONG LEVELS BUT AN ISOLATED STRONG STORM CAN
NOT BE RULED OUT. SUNDAY WILL REMAIN MOSTLY DRY BEFORE A COLD FRONT
MOVES THROUGH THE AREA LATE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY. SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE FRONT AS IT MOVES THROUGH
THE PANHANDLES. RESIDUAL SHOWERS SHOULD EXIT THE SOUTHERN TEXAS
PANHANDLE BY MONDAY AFTERNOON. OFF AND ON STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY AS SHORTWAVES ROTATE AROUND THE
PERIPHERY OF THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE.
