Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lubbock TX
1143 PM CDT MON MAY 23 2016

.AVIATION...
Decaying TSRA at CDS before midnight will be replaced by a gradual
onset of MVFR ceilings from east to west affecting all terminals.
Stratus should hold through mid-morning before drier and breezy SW
winds overspread the region behind a dryline. Earlier threat for
afternoon TS at CDS appears greatly diminished at this time, but
later forecasts will adjust this as necessary.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 820 PM CDT MON MAY 23 2016/

UPDATE...
Thunderstorms that were slow to get going earlier in the evening
have cranked up a notch at sunset. We are seeing an increase in
weak energy from northern Mexico into southwest Texas, and a
typical diurnal increase in low level southeasterly flow. The
dryline has retreated a bit further west but is fairly quiet at
the moment. Two zones have become relatively more active as we
anticipated: one around Caprock Canyons now spreading through Hall
towards Childress. And the other in the Southland to Post and just
north of Justiceburg areas. We have updated for a flash flood
watch for Hall and Childress Counties until midnight, as we are
seeing a tendency for some right turning and slowing and this is
the area that received excessive rainfall last evening. RMcQueen
