.DISCUSSION...
A surface trough across eastern Colorado and eastern New Mexico
will result in gusty southeast to south winds across most of the
forecast area through tonight. An upper trough tracking east out
of the central and southern Rockies will allow for isolated to
widely scattered convection mainly over the northwestern portions
of the Panhandles early but then spreading south and east across
the remainder of the forecast area by 12Z Monday. A surface low
will develop on the surface trough Monday as frontogenesis occurs
by late Monday. The cold front will track across the Panhandles
Monday night as convection lingers across much of the Panhandles
through Monday night. Cool surface ridge to build in across the
forecast area behind the front Tuesday as drier air works in
behind the departing upper trough and with gusty northerly winds.
some lingering showers will be possible across the southern
portions of the Texas Panhandle. Warmer and drier conditions
during the latter half of the week into the upcoming weekend as
the surface ridge builds south and east away from the Panhandles
as surface low pressure develops once again to the lee of the
Rockies. Convection chances return by Saturday night and Sunday as
a northern stream upper trough tracks south and east across the
central and northern Rockies.
