DISCUSSION...
Temperatures were in the lower 80s to upper 70s across the Four
State Region ahead of a approaching cold front off to our west.
Winds will range from 10 to 15 mph with higher gusts before
falling to 5 to 10 mph by sunset. As the front moves into the area
overnight rain and patchy light drizzle my develop out ahead of
the boundary.

 Wednesday, isolated to widely scattered showers will continue
over Deep East Texas and northern and central Louisiana. Showers
should exit the four state region quickly allowing for cooler air to
filter in from the northwest. Wednesday night clear skies with a
northwest wind of 5 to 10 mph, along with overnight lows ranging
from the 30s to near 40.

During the extended period surface ridging will persist over the
area providing cool temperatures with highs in the 50s and overnight
lows in the 30s, along with dry conditions.
