VFR conditions to prevail for the next 24 hours. Surface winds are
anticipated to remain at or below 10kt throughout this TAF cycle.
These light surface winds will start out from the north and shift out
of the south by this afternoon.

PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 226 AM CDT TUE OCT 18 2016/

The cold front moved through the panhandles overnight will knock
highs down by about 20 degrees from yesterday`s readings. This will
still be above normal for this time of year. Surface winds will
quickly turn back around to the south by tonight. Then another cold
front will move through the region on Wednesday. This cold front
will be a little stronger and it will knock temperatures back closer
to normal for Thursday. In fact we may even have some frost come
early Thursday morning across the western Oklahoma Panhandle.

Upper level heights will rise Friday through next weekend as an upper
level ridge builds over the southern plains. Then another upper
level short wave trough approaches the panhandles early next week.
The models do not agree on how to handle this next system. But at
this time, it looks like conditions will remain dry.
