a thunderstorm or two may try to make a run at the dht and Guy taf
sites this evening. But confidence is not high enough to insert any
mention of thunderstorms and rain at this point. Southerly winds will get gusty by middle
morning and then they will slow again with the setting sun. Skies
will remain VFR.

Discussion...today through next Friday
Hot hot hot leads to wet wet wet in this forecast period.
Today and Saturday...
both these days will be very hot and mostly dry. Highs will push 100
in most areas, but probably not cross it in the SW Texas Panhandle where
things are still so green.
Sunday through next week...
precipitation chances will ramp up beginning in the northwest panhandles
late Sunday afternoon. By Sunday night and Monday precipitation chances
ramp up rapidly to high chance probability of precipitation for the majority of the area by
Monday night and Tuesday through Wednesday. Heavy rain and flash
flooding will likely become a threat this week and isolated severe
weather is also expected. It is still difficult to pin down exact
timing of convective rounds, but multiple rounds are expected.
Temperatures will be cool as cloud cover will be extensive next
