.DISCUSSION...

Moisture will linger for one more day before drying out for the
remainder of the week. A frontal boundary draped across the Oklahoma
and northern Texas Panhandle will help serve as a focus for showers
and thunderstorms today. While most of the activity will stay to our
north, several high-res models are showing showers and thunderstorms
this afternoon so have included a slight chance or rain mostly for
the far southwestern Texas Panhandle and western South Plains.

Starting on Tuesday a large upper level high will begin to
strengthen over the west coast. With dry air moving in PoPs will be
low through the remainder of the week. Surface winds will be
southerly to southwesterly which combined with less cloud cover will
allow highs to warm back to the upper 90s across the area. By
Thursday the high will be centered over the four corners region,
with temperatures warming to the triple digits into the weekend. The
forecast high for Lubbock on Thursday and Friday is 101, which is
about 8 degrees above normal.
