AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX

.DISCUSSION...
THE FORECAST REMAINS LARGELY UNCHANGED FROM THE LAST PACKAGE. APART
FROM A VERY SLIGHT CHANCE FOR A SHOWER OR STORM IN THE FAR WESTERN OK
PANHANDLE THIS EVENING...MOST OF THE TX/OK PANHANDLES SHOULD REMAIN
DRY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. A STOUT UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE WILL BE BUILDING
INTO THE AREA THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK...KEEPING MOST OF THE
MONSOONAL MOISTURE PLUME WELL WEST OF THE REGION DURING THAT TIME.
DRYING AND WARMING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED BENEATH THIS HIGH PRESSURE
SYSTEM...AND MANY PLACES COULD HIT 100 DEGREES BY THURSDAY.

AS THE AXIS OF THE RIDGE SHIFTS SLIGHTLY EAST BY FRIDAY...THE
PANHANDLES WILL BE ON THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE RIDGE UNDER SOUTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT. HAVE SLIGHT CHANCE TO CHANCE POPS ACROSS THE NORTHWESTERN
PARTS OF THE PANHANDLES FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH MONDAY EVENING. AT
THIS TIME...HEAVY RAIN WOULD BE THE MOST LIKELY IMPACT FROM ANY
SHOWERS OR STORMS.

.HYDROLOGY...
ALL FLOOD WATCHES AND WARNINGS FOR THE TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA PANHANDLES HAVE
BEEN ALLOWED TO EXPIRE TODAY. PLAYA LAKES NEAR CAPACITY AROUND THE
AMARILLO AREA CONTINUE TO BE A CONCERN...THOUGH A FEW DRIER DAYS MAY
HELP TO DRY SOILS SOME AND ALLOW PLAYA LEVELS TO DECREASE SOME. WITH
AS MUCH RAIN HAS BEEN RECEIVED BY MANY AREAS HOWEVER...FLOODING AND
FLASH FLOODING WILL BE MORE LIKELY WITH ANY HEAVY RAIN OVER THE NEXT
WEEK.
