.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 314 PM CDT SAT OCT 22 2016/

Little changes in the weather are expected to round out the
weekend and the start of next week. A short wave aloft will skirt
just to the south tomorrow afternoon. The only impact will be some
high level clouds spreading over the region. This may be enough to
keep temperatures down a few degrees off the caprock. Furthermore,
full mixing potential may not be realized as well keeping winds
down a bit as well for the Rolling Plains where cloud cover is
expected to be thickest. Temperatures overall will continue to be
well above seasonal averages on Sunday ahead of a cold front
stalling out in the southern Texas Panhandle.

Models continue to swing a shortwave out into the Central Plains
on Tuesday but are trending both weaker and further north with the
system. This has resulted in the models also pulling precipitation
chances out of the forecast for late Tuesday afternoon into
Tuesday night by shifting the bulk of the precipitation north and
east of the area. A weak cold front will slowly mix south through
the day Wednesday which will keep temperatures in check and not
really provide much in the way of cooling. Last half of next week
will be dominated by a ridge building across the Desert Southwest
while gradually sliding east towards the forecast area. This will
result in a gradual increase in temperatures by a degree or two
per day through the end of next week along with dry conditions.
