.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 246 PM CST Sat Jan 13 2018

Forecast is still mainly on track with a few nudges made. I
increased POPS and snow amounts a bit as there seems to be
increasing agreement in short term models. We could even see a few
three inch reports, but this depends on where the mid-level jet
streak axis winds up being with the associated low-amplitude wave.
The bulk of any snow should be late evening and early overnight.
Lows tonight will be in the 11-14 range early and will rise
overnight as anticipated as a warm front approaches. Our quick
break from the cold still on track for Sunday with highs in the
mid 30s to lower 40s, but I went a bit more pessimistic for highs
and with with CONSshort.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Saturday)
Issued at 246 PM CST Sat Jan 13 2018

Arctic air make another return with more snow possible with the
cold push, with possibly some brief sleet in transition from rain
to snow. Snow amounts do not look like a whole lot, but wind
chills could be pushing -30 Monday morning. Wind chills look like
they will be in the -15 to -20 range Tuesday morning. Another
modest warmup is on the way toward the end of the long term.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Sunday)
Issued at 1156 AM CST Sat Jan 13 2018

Main issue will be the next round of snow with a mid-level jet
streak tonight. Best guesses have been made for overall
visibility, but this could vary quite a bit with small-scale snow
bands.
