Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lubbock TX
335 AM CDT WED JUL 20 2016

.SHORT TERM...
Very little change is in store for the weather over the next 24
hours.  The upper ridge centered over Oklahoma is expected to
intensify slightly with thickness values and temperatures aloft
warming a ever so slightly.  As such have bumped afternoon high up 2
degrees from what we saw Tuesday.

.LONG TERM...
Models are beginning to back off with pushing a weak front through
the region late Saturday as the upper level ridge begins to flatten
Models only allow the front it to make it as far as NE NM before
dissipating. Another weak front is progged to push through early
Monday, this one possibly bringing precip to the region. The high
will then begin a retreat to the northwest which will place us under
northwesterly flow aloft thus also increasing precip chances for mid
next week. Slight chance PoPs have been placed in across the FA
starting early next week as models are beginning to agree with the
forecast pattern. Highs will be on a slight downward trend
(low to upper 90s) starting Sunday as thicknesses decrease do to
the flattening/retreating high.
