/12Z TAFS/

No major concerns for the current set of TAFs. There are low
clouds at MVFR CIG heights developing south of KJCT, and may have
to insert a TEMPO or prevailing group to address these. Otherwise,
light and variable winds becoming southerly overnight with mainly
just some mid and upper lever clouds streaming in from the
northwest. 20

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 347 AM CDT THU OCT 27 2016/

(Today and Tonight)

An upper level trough that pushed a weak front into the area
yesterday has moved off to the east. Upper level ridging will
expand from the southwest back into our area. This will result in
another warm day with highs mainly in the mid 80s. Currently,
winds are light and variable across the area with a weak remnant
boundary/surface trough running from Sanderson County,
north/northeast into southwestern Oklahoma. Light and variable
winds, clear skies, and abundant low level moisture may result in
the development of some fog. With fog already being observed along
the Red River south to near Mineral Wells, will go ahead and
insert Patchy Fog for areas mainly north of I-20 through the mid
morning hours. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies by this
afternoon. There may be a few isolated showers in our
southeastern counties later today, but the coverage is not
expected to be enough to mention in the forecast. Expect another
quiet night tonight with light south winds, and lows near 60.


(Friday through Sunday night)

With a high pressure ridge will be firmly in place over Texas
through the coming weekend, the weather for our forecast area
will continue to be dry and unseasonably warm. Afternoon highs
will be in the low to mid 80s and morning lows will be upper 50s
to he lower 60s.

(Monday through Wednesday)

The high pressure ridge will begin to drift east of the forecast
area on Monday with our winds aloft becoming southwesterly. Models
are bringing an upper trough over California by early Tuesday and
eastward over the Four Corners by late Wednesday. Ahead of the
upper trough low to mid level moisture will begin to increase
over the forecast area. Precipitation chances will begin over our
southeastern counties by late Tuesday, and spread over the entire
CWA during the day on Wednesday. As cloud cover and rain chances
increase, afternoon highs will only get to the upper 70s over our
southern counties on Tuesday and remain in the upper 70s over
all of the forecast area on Wednesday.
