.DISCUSSION...
The upper level pattern will be remarkably stable and stationary
through next week with a large upper level low over southeastern
Canada and a ridge over the western U.S. That will leave the
South Plains in a period of prolonged northwesterly flow funneling
cool air into West Texas and southeastern New Mexico. Highs will
only reach the 50s today, then a reinforcing shot of cold air
tonight will keep the cool weather into Saturday. The west coast
ridge will try to move east Sunday bringing slightly warmer temps
but a strong trough will push the ridge back west and usher in
another cold front on Monday and a return of the colder temps for
Tuesday and Wednesday. The northwesterly flow will not allow for
much moisture return so despite an active pattern, very little
rainfall is expected the next seven days.
