Area Forecast Discussion

307 AM CST Mon Dec 11 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Dormant weather pattern will continue for the seven day forecast
period as a blocking ridge of high pressure over the western CONUS
remains. Dry northwest flow will prevail as a result. As cold
modified arctic air masses continue to barrel down the central and
eastern CONUS, occassional cold fronts will clip the Panhandles.
As is stands current model guidance suggest these will be weak
cold fronts and therefore highs will fluctuate between mid to
upper 50s on the cooler days and mid 60s to lower 70s on the
warmer days. Thursday will be the exception as stronger but quick
moving cold front will push through and leave highs in the upper
40s to lower 50s. By Friday temperatures will rebound into the
upper 50s to lower 60s.
