.DISCUSSION...
Little change to the weather pattern from what was seen on
yesterday`s numerical weather models. Short and medium range
models are in decent agreement that an upper level ridge of high
pressure will situate itself over the southwest states through
most of this week while an upper level trof of low pressure
persists over the Great Lakes and eastern states. This places our
fcst area in some semblance of northwest flow aloft which is
usually favorable for steering tstorms into our region from sern
CO and nern NM. Have incorporated slgt chc to low end chc pops for
several periods from Tuesday through the end of this fcst cycle
based on latest model consensus. Well above normal temperatures
will also return to the OK and TX Panhandles on Wednesday and
Thursday before another cold front moves across the area on
Friday with cooler temps for the upcoming weekend.
