.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 237 PM CDT FRI APR 24 2015/

DISCUSSION...
PRIMARY CONCERN CONTINUES TO BE THE CURRENT THUNDERSTORMS AND
SEVERE POTENTIAL. ALTHOUGH THE PRIMARY FOCI HAVE SHIFTED TO THE
SOUTH /THANKS TO THE PERSISTENT SHOWERS AND STORMS ACROSS NORTH
TEXAS/ AND TO THE NORTH /CLOSER TO THE SURFACE LOW/... THERE HAS
BEEN ENOUGH CLEARING AND DEVELOPMENT OF SOME INSTABILITY TO
SUPPORT THUNDERSTORMS AND A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE
AREA THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. STORMS THAT MOVED
IN FROM NEAR CHILDRESS PRODUCED SOME STRONG WINDS IN SOUTHWEST
OKLAHOMA... ALTHOUGH THESE STORMS ARE MOVING OUT OF THE MAIN
INSTABILITY AXIS. WILL BE WATCHING FOR POTENTIAL OF ADDITIONAL
DEVELOPMENT OVER THE AREA AND FOR THE CHANCE OF STORMS MOVING INTO
OUR TEXAS COUNTIES FROM WEST TEXAS. STORM CHANCES WILL DECREASE
FROM WEST TO EAST THROUGH THE EVENING AS DRIER AIR SPREADS INTO
THE AREA AND UPPER TROF MOVES NORTHEAST.

SATURDAY WILL BE DRY BUT STILL RELATIVELY WARM. A COLD FRONT WILL
MOVE THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY BRINGING COOLER
WEATHER. THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH DRY WITH UPPER
RIDGE STILL OVER THE AREA... BUT STORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE LATER
SUNDAY AS THE NEXT UPPER WAVE MOVES TOWARD THE SOUTHERN HIGH
PLAINS WITH PRECIPITATION CHANCES CONTINUING INTO MONDAY NIGHT AND
TUESDAY.
