.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 00Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 00Z Friday)
Issued at 519 PM CST Thu Dec 7 2017

Looking at IR Sat seeing some cirrus working into the area. An
upper disturbance will move in after midnight and will bring a
chance for some flurries to maybe a dusting of light snow. Went
VCSH for -SN now, will put a mention in the 6z Tafs for -SN. Also
seeing some MVFR ceilings moving into GRI around sunrise, EAR is
on the edge so only went FEW to SCT for 2,500ft clouds.
