forecast period, with another upper trough forecast to move from the
Southwest over the southern Plains and eventually the Southeast from

surface-based thunderstorms along/near the TX Coast Friday
afternoon/evening, and from the central Gulf Coast to FL/GA on
Saturday. Predictability regarding instability being sufficient for

will amplify and strengthen around Day 7/Sunday into Day 8/Monday
across the western states and Southwest. As this system ejects over

low-level moisture should occur across parts of TX and the lower MS
