.DISCUSSION...

Isolated thunderstorms are possible along the dryline this
afternoon and evening. Some storms may produce gusty winds and
hail but are expected to dissipate after sunset.

Drier air will move in through mid week ahead of the approaching
trough. Moisture will return starting on Friday and will continue
to increase through the weekend. With the deep trough extending
over most of the western US, models are showing a plume of
moisture extending from Minnesota down to New Mexico. This area of
moisture will move east through the weekend as the trough slowly
translates east. PoPs reflect this with 20-40% expected Saturday
for the western half of the CWA with more widespread coverage
(20-50%) on Sunday. There is potential for heavy rainfall with
this system as storms may be efficient rain producers. Models are
less clear on with the through exiting the area with some
moisture will linger through early next week.
