FRONT TO PUSH SOUTH OUT OF THE PANHANDLES EARLY TONIGHT WITH SOME
ISOLATED CONVECTION MAINLY THIS EVENING ACROSS THE WEST AND SOUTHERN

ROCKIES AND ACROSS THE PANHANDLES THIS WEEKEND AND THEN TRACKING OFF
TO THE EAST EARLY NEXT WEEK AS ANOTHER UPPER TROUGH APPROACHES THE

SURFACE TROUGH DEVELOPS BY EARLY NEXT WEEK THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK WHICH MAY ALLOW FOR ISOLATED CONVECTION TO IMPACT THE WESTERN
AND PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PANHANDLES MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT.
