.DISCUSSION...
For tonight, a cold front will plow southward across the OK and TX
Panhandles with strong north winds in its wake. Wind speeds may
reach into wind advisory criteria for a few hours behind this
boundary, and a wind advisory may become necessary for parts of
the fcst area. Slgt chc pops for tstms were retained in the
eastern OK Panhandle for the evening hours. Cooler temperatures
will encompass the area for Sunday, with some slight warming
foreseen on Monday.

Short and medium range models suggest an upper level ridge of high
pressure will situate itself over the southwest states through
much of next week while an upper level trof of low pressure
persists over the Great Lakes and eastern states. This places our
fcst area in some semblance of northwest flow aloft which is
usually favorable for steering tstorms into our region from sern
CO and nern NM. Have incorporated slgt chc pops from Tuesday
through Wednesday night for this package based on latest model
consensus. Above normal temperatures will also return to the area
by the middle of next week.
