.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 234 PM CST Thu Dec 7 2017

Today was not much of a surprise, although we did not quite top
off quite as high as predicted, falling a couple degrees short.

A trough is on its way tonight and during the overnight, we could
get a skiff of snow as it passes through. I even threw in a 20 POP
in for liquid accumulation, although any snow amounts will be
nearly negligible. Temperatures will be noticeably warmer tonight
with increased sky cover, with lows generally around 20.

Wind speeds will kick up a bit stronger than models are indicating
and went closer to CONSMOS, and even kicked it up a couple more
miles an hour. Lowered temps a couple degrees for highs Friday,
considering we didn`t quite realize our temps today.

Friday may wind up feeling colder than today, despite technically
warmer temperatures, as wind gusts will probably be in the 20-30
mph range with our highs near 40 to the mid 40s.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday)
Issued at 234 PM CST Thu Dec 7 2017

Northwest flow for the long term, and still anticipating a warmup
for the weekend with 50s for most of us for highs Sunday. Mainly a
dry forecast, except for a slight POP for rain in our northeast
with a passing wave within north/northwest flow. Generally, our
temperatures will be a bit above normal for the extended forecast.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Friday)
Issued at 1140 AM CST Thu Dec 7 2017

Main issue will be the passage of a surface trough overnight
tonight, with some light snow showers/flurries. Wind will pick up
a bit more by late morning Friday.
