Discussion...
a frontal boundary continues to move slowly south and east across the
southern sections of the forecast area late today. Expect this cold
front to push south out of the panhandles early tonight with some
isolated convection mainly this evening across the west and southern
sections. An upper ridge over the intercontinental region with a
northwesterly upper flow across the panhandles will allow for an
upper trough to track across the forecast area through early tonight.
A surface ridge will build into the forecast area tonight and
Saturday before moving east away from the panhandles Saturday night
and Sunday.

The upper ridge to build east across the central and southern
rockies and across the panhandles this weekend and then tracking off
to the east early next week as another upper trough approaches the
forecast area by late Monday into Tuesday and Tuesday night. Lee side
surface trough develops by early next week through the middle of next
week which may allow for isolated convection to impact the western
and portions of the central panhandles Monday through Tuesday night.
Another cold front pushes into the panhandles by Thursday night and
Friday morning.
