.DISCUSSION...
Temps this morning around the area look to be lower than expected
so have extended the area for the Frost Advisory as it looks like
all but the southeast TX Panhandle will see temps between 33 and
36 degrees with clear skies across the region. Some places have
already fallen to 36 or below. After 8 to 9 AM this morning, temps
will warm up quickly with abundant sunshine and rising mid-level
heights as low pressure pushes northeast away from the area.
Downsloping southwest winds will warm the Panhandles up over the
next few days back into the mid 80s. The next main player in the
weather will be Friday night through Saturday night as a front
tries to push into the area, backs up a bit, then gets another run
at us during the day, and finally makes it through by Sunday
morning. This front will bring some milder temps and chances for
showers and thunderstorms. The beginning of next week dries out
again as high pressure builds back into northwest Mexico and
forces the Panhandles into dry northwest flow aloft.
