.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE PARKED OVER THE SOUTHERN TEXAS PANHANDLE WILL BE
RESPONSIBLE FOR ONE MORE HOT DAY. TEMPERATURES WILL AGAIN BE VERY
CLOSE TO OR ABOVE RECORDS. HAVE GONE AHEAD AND ISSUED A HEAT
ADVISORY FOR PALO DURO CANYON AND PARTS OF THE NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS
PANHANDLE AND THE CENTRAL OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE. A FEW THUNDERSTORMS
MAY TRY TO SNEAK INTO THE NORTHWEST SECTIONS OF THE CWA BY LATE
AFTERNOON AND THEN SOME OF THE STORMS MAY TRY TO PUSH FURTHER SOUTH
WITH THE HELP OF A COLD FRONT.

PERIODS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE THE RULE THROUGH MUCH
OF THIS FORECAST BEYOND SUNDAY. THE UPPER LEVEL HIGH BUILDS BACK
TO THE 4 CORNERS REGION BY SUNDAY NIGHT WHILE AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH
CARVES ITSELF OUT OVER THE EASTERN THIRD OF THE COUNTRY. THIS WILL
PUT THE PANHANDLES IN NORTHWEST FLOW. SEVERAL UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCES ALONG WITH AN OCCASIONAL COLD FRONT WILL PUSH SOUTH
ACROSS THE REGION TO HELP SET OFF THESE ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. SOME OF THE RAIN MAY GET HEAVY AT TIMES DURING THE
UPCOMING WEEK...SO FLOODING MAY BE A CONCERN. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS
WILL ALSO NOT BE OUT OF THE QUESTION.

TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO BE TRICKY THIS WEEK. SOME OF THE HIGHS
DURING THE MIDDLE PART OF THE WEEK MAY BE A LITTLE ON THE WARM
SIDE...SO WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF WE CONTINUE TO EDGE THESE
TEMPERATURES DOWNWARD WITH TIME.
