.DISCUSSION...
COLD AIR SURGE IS UNDERWAY AS EARLY SEASON ARCTIC AIR MASS SETTLES
OVER THE REGION THIS WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES DID REBOUND NICELY THIS
AFTERNOON AFTER A COOL MORNING BUT THE COLDEST AIR SO FAR THIS FALL
SEASON WILL RESULT IN FREEZING TEMPERATURES OVER THE NRN THIRD OF
THE REGION ON SATURDAY MORNING...LIKELY EXTENDING DOWN TO THE AR/LA
STATE LINE AND EXTENDING WWRD ACROSS THE I-30 CORRIDOR OF NE TX.
THUS...HAVE EXPANDED THE FREEZE WARNING TO INCLUDE THE REMAINDER
OF SW AR THAT WAS NOT PREVIOUSLY INCLUDED IN THE WARNED AREA. A
REPEAT IS LIKELY ON SUNDAY MORNING AND WE MAY HAVE TO ENTERTAIN
ADDITIONAL FREEZE WARNINGS A BIT FARTHER SOUTH. GOOD ADVICE FOR
BOTH NIGHTS THIS WEEKEND IS TO PROTECT TENDER OUTDOOR VEGETATION
ESPECIALLY IN AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF THE I-20 CORRIDOR AS SOME
PATCHY FROST WILL LIKELY DEVELOP EVEN IN SPOTS THAT DO NOT REACH
FREEZING. AS FOR WINDS...THEY HAVE DROPPED OFF THIS AFTERNOON SO
THE LAKE WIND ADVISORY WILL LIKELY BE CANCELLED EARLY.

WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN THE NEW WORK WEEK WITH OUR TEMPERATURES
RETURNING TO NEAR OR ABOVE NORMAL. BY TUESDAY...A COLD FRONT WILL
BEGIN TO PUSH INTO THE REGION WITH AN UPPER TROF AND DEVELOPING
CUT OFF LOW. THIS IS LIKELY TO EXTEND THE PERIOD FOR SHWRS/TSTMS
THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK BEFORE EXITING LATE THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY.
TEMPERATURES WILL RETURN TO NEAR SEASONAL AVERAGES BEHIND THE
FRONT BY LATE NEXT WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND AS WE BEGIN TO DRY OUT.
