DISCUSSION...

MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE PANHANDLES THIS MORNING. SITES IN
THE OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE AND WESTERN TEXAS PANHANDLE HAVE ALREADY
REACHED THE MID 30S...AND A FROST ADVISORY REMAINS IN PLACE FOR THOSE
AREAS. MAX TEMPS TODAY WILL BE SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL...REACHING ONLY
THE MID 60S TO LOW 70S. ANOTHER COOL NIGHT ON TAP WITH LIGHT WINDS
AND CLEAR SKIES...ALLOWING FOR GOOD RADIATIONAL COOLING AND A FROST
ADVISORY MAY BE NEEDED FOR PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CWA.
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES WILL RETURN THIS EVENING THROUGH THE END OF THE
WORKWEEK WHEN ANOTHER COLD FRONT WILL PASS THROUGH THE AREA...BUT
APPEARS IT WILL PASS THROUGH DRY AGAIN SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY/S FRONT.

MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH THE SHORT TERM. SOUTHWESTERLY
FLOW WILL STRENGTHEN BY SATURDAY WITH THE RETURN OF BREEZY
CONDITIONS THROUGH THE WEEKEND. WILL SEE SOME MOISTURE RETURN OVER
THE WEEKEND. MODELS SHOW POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIFFUSE DRYLINE
BY SUNDAY. ANOTHER COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH THE
PANHANDLES MONDAY...WITH STILL QUITE A BIT OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE
MODELS IN THE TIMING AND STRENGTH OF THE FRONT. FOR NOW KEPT POPS LOW
TO ACCOUNT FOR THIS UNCERTAINTY.
