.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 409 AM CDT THU APR 17 2014/

DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVING ACROSS THE AREA TODAY WILL
RESULT IN INCREASING MID AND HIGH LEVEL CLOUDINESS. THE LOWER
LEVEL AIRMASS WILL REMAIN DRY SO RAIN WILL BE HARD TO COME BY. THE
BEST CHANCE FOR A FEW SHOWERS TO REACH THE GROUND WILL BE IN THE
NORTHWEST PART OF THE FORECAST AREA THIS AFTERNOON. IF ANY RAIN
DOES FALL...AMOUNTS WILL BE VERY LIGHT...A TRACE TO A FEW
HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH.

WARMER WEATHER WILL RETURN FRIDAY AND TEMPERATURES WILL THEN BE
SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL THIS WEEKEND THROUGH MOST OF NEXT
WEEK. A SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES WILL BRING SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY BUT
THE SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL LOOKS RELATIVELY LOW. ANOTHER CHANCE
OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR AROUND THURSDAY OF NEXT
WEEK AND A BETTER CHANCE OF SEVERE STORMS MAY EXIST AT THIS TIME
DEPENDING ON THE TRACK OF AN UPPER LOW THAT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE
PLAINS.

HAVE STAYED CLOSE TO GUIDANCE TEMPERATURES FOR THE MOST PART THE
NEXT COUPLE DAYS BUT DID GO A BIT COOLER FOR LOWS TONIGHT AND A
BIT WARMER FOR HIGHS FRIDAY.
