Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lubbock TX
1226 PM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017

.AVIATION...
Strong W winds at will turn NW in the next hour or so, before scaling
back at sunset. Earlier confidence in MVFR visibility at LBB and
PVW from blowing dust is now much less due to recent trends and
short term models that have scaled back on the intensity of winds.
As such, VFR should prevail with only brief windows for MVFR from
blowing dust at LBB and PVW.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 830 AM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017/

UPDATE...
Quick update to insert A.M. clouds and light rain in our SW
Panhandle counties. Bootleg West TX Mesonet recently measured
0.03" rain with this activity. Overall trend is for these clouds
and rain to gradually dissipate with southward extent, however an
impressive cold pocket (-23C at 500mb) may keep these intact
longer than models suggest.
