Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Amarillo TX
426 PM CDT Sat May 26 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Forecast remains largely unchanged.  Very warm conditions
expected with high temperatures 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit above
normal through Wednesday, with Thursday and Friday forecast to be
15 to 20 degrees above climo.  Dry tonight and Sunday morning,
with chances for thunderstorms resuming Sunday afternoon.

Diffluent mid-level flow sets up on Sunday with the departure of
500 mb ridge.  Broad cyclonic flow expected to continue through
at least Tuesday over Panhandles as Great Basin closed low lifts
to northern High Plains.  Mainly afternoon and evening
thunderstorms expected Sunday and Monday as disturbances in
southwest flow aloft may help instability to be released along
dryline.  Low-level jet expected to assist in potential inflow to
thunderstorms during the evenings.

Models disagree with low-level features Tuesday and beyond.
Resulting pops offered by Blend Tuesday and Wednesday have been
reduced and confined to eastern and northwestern sections,
respectively.  Splotchy Blended pops Thursday, Friday and Friday
night have been kept out of forecast, as rising mid-level heights
expected to lead to dry hot weather Thursday and beyond.
