DISCUSSION
 
 
EXTENSIVE MCS HAS PUSHED AN OUTFLOW BOUNDARY THROUGH N TX WHILE  
VWP DATA AT KTLX / KFDR SUGGEST THE INFLUENCE OF THE MODIFIED  
AIRMASS IS AROUND 2KFT DEEP. ONGOING CONVECTION WITHIN THE WARM  
ADVECTION REGIME ATOP THE STABILIZED LAYER WILL FURTHER DELAY  
MODIFICATION THROUGH THE DAY. EVOLUTION OF THE MORNING CONVECTION  
IS UNCERTAIN BUT EXPECTATION IS THAT A FESTERING WILL REMAIN  
ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA AT LEAST THROUGH MID MORNING AND POSSIBLY  
LONGER. THE FOCUS FOR AFTERNOON WILL BE THE AFOREMENTIONED OUTFLOW  
BOUNDARY AND THIS FORECAST WILL SIDE TOWARD A MORE SOUTHERN  
PLACEMENT OF THE BOUNDARY THAN SHOWN BY MODELED SOLUTION. WHILE  
CAM SOLUTIONS OFFER THE BEST CHANCE OF HANDLING THE BOUNDARY LAYER  
EVOLUTION THE CURRENT AGGRESSIVE NATURE OF THE OUTFLOW COMPARED  
TO SHORT TERM PROGS SUGGEST THAN EVEN THE HIGHER RESOLUTION MODELS  
MAY BE UNDERESTIMATING THE OUTFLOW DEPTH. REGARDLESS STORMS ARE  
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ALONG THE EVENTUAL BOUNDARY LOCATION AS A  
SUBTLE WAVE PASSES AND ACTS ON A STRONGLY UNSTABLE AIRMASS.  
INHIBITION WILL REMAIN STRONG THROUGH MID AFTERNOON THUS STORM  
DEVELOPMENT WILL BE SOMEWHAT DELAYED AND EXPAND IN COVERAGE  
PRIMARILY THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. GIVEN THE EXPECTED DEGREE OF  
INSTABILITY THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF SIGNIFICANT  
SEVERE WEATHER.  
 
A STRONG WAVE FOR LATE JUNE IS EXPECTED TO QUICKLY RESET THE SFC  
PATTERN BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON. WIDESPREAD STORMS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS  
THE WESTERN PLAINS AND SPREAD E-NE SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING  
AND QUICKLY BECOME SEVERE. THE EXPANDING WARM MID LEVEL TEMPS  
/SAMPLED BY 23/00Z WEST AND CENTRAL TX RAOBS/ WILL OFFER A SHARP  
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY FOR STRONGER STORM DEVELOPMENT AND STORM  
CHANCES WILL BE CONFINED TO NORTHERN AREAS PER MODEL TRENDS. THESE  
WARM TEMPS FURTHER EXPAND ON MONDAY WITH THE TRAILING COLD  
FRONTAL CONVECTION LIKELY STRUGGLING TO BUILD SOUTHWARD INTO THE  
FORECAST AREA.  
 
THEREAFTER UPPER RIDGING INTENSIFIES ACROSS THE PLAINS AND HOT AND  
HUMID CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED. GIVEN THE RECENT RAINFALL THE  
LIKELIHOOD OF EXCESSIVE DAILY DEWPOINTS MAY WELL PUSH PORTIONS OF  
THE AREA INTO HEAT ADVISORY CRITERIA FOR MID NEXT WEEK.
