Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Amarillo Texas
327 PM CDT Friday Jul 31 2015

Discussion...
no major changes have been made to the forecast. Primary concern
remains threat of heavy rain with possible flooding issues. Flash
Flood Watch will be expanded in area to include all of Texas and
Oklahoma panhandles...and will be extended in time to run through the
day on Saturday.

Deep...rich moisture remains in place across forecast area. Strengthening
southerly low-level flow tonight will promote additional moisture
return and warm air advection for sustained thunderstorm development.

Otherwise...increased probability of precipitation slightly most sections Saturday and
Saturday night as modest upper support traverses moist and unstable
lower levels. Low probability of precipitation retained Sunday through Monday night. Dry
thereafter.
