.DISCUSSION...
Popcorn showers and thunderstorms have again already started up
over the last hour and a half across the southwestern TX
Panhandle. These storms will mainly be likely over the
southwestern and northeastern areas where cumulus has formed. The
central and southeastern areas have been holding onto some cloud
cover from lingering precip this morning. With very little shear
and instability to work with, these storms should remain below
severe levels. An isolated storm or two may become marginally
severe, as has been the case for a storm near Tulia. Some
storms may linger again in the morning, so have gone with 10 pops
for these. However, for the most part, things should begin to dry
out over this week as the upper level ridge fills in overhead.
Storms will again become possible by Saturday night as the ridge
moves eastward and allows shortwaves to traverse the western edge
of the high pressure.
