.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 255 PM CST Mon Jan 22 2018/

DISCUSSION...
The main concerns the rest of this week will be fire weather.

Strong winds this afternoon will continue for a few more hours but
are expected to diminish this evening. With this in mind will make
no changes to the current wind advisory that goes through 0Z.

Models show southerly winds will return to the area Wednesday before
shifting again Friday when another cold front moves across the
region. Moisture will increase across at least portions of the fa
late this week ahead of the cold front. With the increasing moisture
and front, showers and a few storms could be possible in SE portions
of the fa Friday into Saturday. Other than these rain chances, the
forecast will be dry for most through at least early next week.

Temperatures will remain above normal through Friday, with highs in
the 60s late in the work week. The air behind the cold front looks
like it will not be extremely cold but will knock temperatures back
down closer to normal over the weekend.

Fire Weather...
Elevated to Near Critical fire weather conditions are expected
through Friday, mainly across portions of western OK and western
north TX. Minimum RH values will likely drop near and below 20
percent each afternoon. Relatively light NW winds are expected
across the area Tuesday with southerly winds returning Wednesday.
S to SW winds will likely be breezy Thursday and Friday. A wind
shift to the NW will occur Friday. Fire weather concerns are
currently forecast to be low for the weekend.
