.DISCUSSION...
An upper high over the Four Corners and Great Basin Region will
maintain a more northerly or even northeasterly upper flow across the
Panhandles through the latter half of the week. By Friday...the upper
flow transitions back to northwesterly. The upper high builds back to
the east towards the Panhandles this weekend with the upper high
settling in over the central and southern Rockies by late Saturday
and Sunday. Convection chances today through Thursday will be fairly
isolated and the western and southern sections of the forecast area
may have better chances. A frontal boundary is forecast to push south
into the Oklahoma Panhandle or possibly the extreme northern or
northeastern Texas Panhandle and then become stationary by the end
of the week. The front should then lift back to the north and east as
a warm front over the weekend. Chances for convection should increase
by the end of the week and into the early part of the weekend as the
upper flow becomes northwesterly. Drier conditions expected by late
in the weekend as the upper high builds in from the west.
