AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AMARILLO TX
301 PM CDT TUE MAY 19 2015

.DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TONIGHT
ACROSS MUCH OF THE PANHANDLES. COLD FRONT REMAINS IN THE AREA
ALONG WITH PLENTY OF MOISTURE. WIND SHEAR ALOFT WILL ALSO HELP OUT
TO PRODUCE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. SEVERE STORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE TONIGHT GIVEN THE DYNAMICS. WILL LET THE FLOOD WATCH
EXPIRE ON TIME AS THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE MORE
SCATTERED WHICH MAY CUT DOWN ON THE CHANCES OF WIDESPREAD FLOODING.

CHANCES OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL WANE SOME WEDNESDAY...
BUT THEN THEY WILL RETURN THURSDAY ON THROUGH THE REST OF THIS
FORECAST. AN UPPER TROUGH WILL AGAIN MOVE SLOWLY EAST ACROSS THE
WESTERN U.S. THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. THIS WILL KEEP THE
PANHANDLES UNDER A SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WHICH WILL ENCOURAGE A
DRYLINE TO MOVE BACK AND FORTH ACROSS THE REGION.

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THIS FORECAST GIVEN
THE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND OCCASIONAL CLOUD COVER AND RAIN.
