.DISCUSSION...
Temps overnight have dropped into the 40s as clouds have
dissipated. However, with the return of southwest flow at the
surface and downsloping flow with mid-level height rises, the
Panhandles will see the return of the 80s this afternoon. This
trend continues Thursday and brings even warmer temps, 90s. A
frontal passage on Friday due to an upper level short wave passing
through as flow changes from northwesterly to split-zonal will
bring slightly cooler temps for the day and the beginning of
chances for precip to come back to the area. Northerly flow
continues for the beginning of the weekend and showers and
thunderstorms will be possible behind the cold front. The area may
see a slight break in precip activity for Sunday; however, this
will be a short lived break as upper level northwest flow sets up
for the first half of next week, allowing for another couple quick
fronts to blast through and keep precip chances lingering. Models
are not in full agreement on the timing of things after Saturday,
so for now have stuck with a model blend.
