DISCUSSION...
DRY AND SEASONABLE CONDITIONS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO THE PANHANDLES.
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT MUCH OF THE SNOW FROM
YESTERDAYS STORM HAS SINCE MELTED AWAY. WITH THE SNOW MOSTLY GONE
AND WINDS STAYING OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST OVERNIGHT, WE SHOULD STAY
ABOVE THE 20 DEGREE MARK FOR OVERNIGHT LOWS.

THE WARMING TREND CONTINUES FRIDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER
50S ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA. HIGHS IN THE 60S AWAIT US OVER THE
WEEKEND EVEN WITH A WEAK COLD FRONT SLATED TO MOVE THROUGH THE
PANHANDLES. TEMPERATURES REBOUND QUICKLY FOR THE START OF THE WORK
WEEK AND WE COULD BE LOOKING AT 70S FOR THE MIDDLE PART OF NEXT
WEEK. AS FAR AS THE CHANCE FOR PRECIP (FROZEN OR OTHERWISE) LOOKS TO
BE VERY LOW FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS.

.AMA WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
