.DISCUSSION...
Shower and thunderstorm chances look best across the northwest half
of the panhandles through tonight. This area is in the best
diffluence aloft and is under the best dynamics.  We certainly can
not rule out a shower or thunderstorm elsewhere, but they should be
less organized.

The middle of the subtropical moisture plume that has shifted off to
the east of the panhandles will slowly move back over the panhandles
this weekend and then more toward the western panhandles or eastern
New Mexico by mid week next week.

Showers and thunderstorms should be a daily occurrence through this
forecast across parts of the panhandles. Not everyone will get wet
everyday, but the chances of everyone receiving some rain over the
next 7 days looks fairly good.

A storm system and its associated moisture over the Gulf of Mexico
now will also be brought toward the panhandles by early to the
middle part of next week. So this will only add to the moisture
already in place and it will add extra lift for showers and
thunderstorms.
