AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
129 PM CDT Tue Jun 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level disturbance above a surface trough along the eastern
slopes of the mountains is expected to produce isolated to scattered
thunderstorms through this evening across the higher terrain of
southwest Texas including the immediate adjacent plains northward
to the western Permian Basin east of the surface trough. Activity
will likely diminish later this evening with loss of heating.

The main weather maker for the remainder of the forecast package
will be an upper level ridge that is forecast to build over the
forecast area. This ridge should keep precipitation chances on the
low side for the next seven days. There could be some isolated
thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday afternoon and evening across
the orographically favored mountains and the immediate adjacent
plains near the surface trough. Temperatures are expected to warm
to above normal values underneath the ridge the next several days
but will be tempered somewhat by upslope flow
