.AVIATION...
/18Z TAFS/ VFR CONDITIONS TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE VALID TAF FORECAST
PERIOD. HAVE LEFT OUT ANY MENTION OF -TSRA AT KGUY/KDHT AS

SATURDAY...AND MAY NEAR THE KGUY/KDHT TERMINALS BY AROUND 15Z. THIS
WILL ONLY RESULT IN WINDS SHIFTING TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST INITIALLY.
STORMS MAY FIRE ALONG THIS FRONT...BUT BEST CHANCES FOR THIS TO OCCUR
WILL BE JUST BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THIS FORECAST.

BOTH THESE DAYS WILL BE VERY HOT AND MOSTLY DRY. HIGHS WILL PUSH 100

THINGS ARE STILL SO GREEN.

SUNDAY THROUGH NEXT WEEK...
PRECIP CHANCES WILL RAMP UP BEGINNING IN THE NORTHWEST PANHANDLES
LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON. BY SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY PRECIP CHANCES
RAMP UP RAPIDLY TO HIGH CHANCE POPS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE AREA BY
MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.  HEAVY RAIN AND FLASH
FLOODING WILL LIKELY BECOME A THREAT THIS WEEK AND ISOLATED SEVERE
WEATHER IS ALSO EXPECTED. IT IS STILL DIFFICULT TO PIN DOWN EXACT
TIMING OF CONVECTIVE ROUNDS, BUT MULTIPLE ROUNDS ARE EXPECTED.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOL AS CLOUD COVER WILL BE EXTENSIVE NEXT
WEEK.
