.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 831 PM CST Thu Nov 23 2017/

UPDATE...Thin cirrus clouds continue to move across the combined
Panhandles this evening, though coverage is sparse enough to allow
for sufficient radiational cooling. Have updated our forecast to
take into account current and expected high cloud cover. In
addition, made minor adjustments to account for temperature
trends that are slightly cooler this evening. Otherwise, we could
not ask for a better late November night in the Panhandles with
lows this evening and overnight expected to be in the low to mid
40s.
