A Warm Start To February 2/4/13
Monday Morning Weather Update
Greg Morgan – Chief Meteorologist
A warm day is expected across the Permian Basin. At least by February standards! Highs will reach into the upper 60’s and lower 70’s. Winds will be out of the northwest at 5-15mph. Skies will be partly cloudy.
Even warmer conditions will be in the offing for the area on Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will reach into the 70’s for most. Skies will still remain partly cloudy. A weak disturbance will move over the region on Wednesday afternoon. This will provide a narrow window of opportunity for a sprinkle or two. However, very little in the way of rainfall is expected.
A large storm system will move into the Great Basin on Friday. A dryline will set up across the region in response to this storm. Moisture will surge into the area on Saturday morning. As the dryline sharpens and moves into the area on Saturday afternoon, a few thunderstorms are likely. Some storms could become strong. The best chance of rain will be in the eastern Permian Basin. West of the dryline, breezy west winds and dry conditions are likely.
