.DISCUSSION...
No major changes have been made to the forecast.  Welcome relief
from the heat will be felt across the Texas and Oklahoma
Panhandles today and Monday thanks to the cold front which passed
overnight.  Brisk northeast winds this morning will diminish
during the day as post-frontal pressure gradient relaxes.
Morning clouds will assist in holding temperatures into the lower-
to mid-80s most sections.

Light east and southeast winds on Monday as post-frontal surface
high sets up to our east, with slowly modifying airmass still
allowing pleasant conditions and near-normal highs in the mid-80s
to lower 90s.

All good things come to an end with temperatures rising again as
mid-level ridge over southwest CONUS broadens.  Mid- to upper-90s
will be common on Tuesday, with Heat Advisories possibly being
needed again Wednesday and Thursday.  Afternoon and evening
thunderstorms may slip into mainly western sections Tuesday
through Wednesday night, if not being squashed by mid-level
temperatures flirting with values around -5 degrees Celsius.

Still some support to expect another relief-providing cold front
on Friday, especially in light of the intrusion being made by
today`s cold front.  Today`s forecast calls for Saturday highs to
rise only the 80s for most sections, and for another chance for
thunderstorms Friday night and Saturday.
