.DISCUSSION...
Abnormally increased heights over the western US and abnormally
lowered heights over the eastern US will dominate the weather for
the next week leaving fairly uneventful weather for West Texas.
Several short waves will be rotating around the large trough over
the eastern US but will have little impact except for sending a few
cold fronts through the area. The next of these fronts will be on
Thursday with cold surface ridging on Friday morning. The next front
after that will be on Monday and looks to be a bit stronger than the
Thursday front with stronger winds and colder temperatures. Models
are depicting some light precipitation on Saturday as one of the
stronger short waves passes overhead. However, a deeper dive into
this situation is not promising for measurable precipitation.
Moisture will be fairly sparse with some low level moisture
available. A strong upper level jet will be nearby just to the south
across central Texas. But this will result in little lift for the
South Plains and rolling Plains.
