.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 225 AM CST Thu Nov 23 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Gentle breezes will prevail today as a surface trough passes
through. Temperatures will once again be above normal.

A lee-side trough will strengthen some overnight into Friday morning
ahead of another cold front which will move through the region
Friday afternoon and evening. Downslope warming ahead of the front
may be just enough to send high temperatures into record territory.

High temperatures will be back down in the 60s for Saturday behind
the front.

Temperatures will start to rebound some on Sunday and especially
Monday as another lee-side trough encourages downslope winds again.
Winds may get a little breezy on Monday and the fire danger may be
elevated, but the jury is still out on how strong the winds may be
as the models do not agree on the strength or the timing of the next
dry short wave trough that will be crossing the Panhandles early
next week. At any rate, this short wave trough should help to drive
a cold front through the area, knocking temperatures back closer to
normal for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
