.DISCUSSION...
Shortwave trof emanating from closed low over Minnesota will make
its final push through Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles this morning,
providing support for showers and a few thunderstorms.  Much
drier low- to mid-level air will filter into forecast area
beginning this afternoon, ending threat of additional
precipitation.  North winds and morning clouds will keep
temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below normal today.  Northwest flow
aloft behind departing trof will prevail through Wednesday.
Near-zonal flow on Thursday becomes more southwest on Friday as
next trof begins to take shape over the Rockies.  Very warm
conditions on Thursday as downsloping winds lead to highs about 10
to 15 degrees above climo.  Could see showers and thunderstorms
as soon as Friday night over northern sections as post-frontal
moisture and instability increases.  No strong signal for
organized severe weather emerges with this forecast.  03

.FIRE WEATHER...
Although relative humidities will fall into the 10 to 20 percent
range on Thursday over all but eastern sections of the Panhandles,and
on Friday across the southwest half of the Combined Panhandles, in
spite of moderately strong southwest winds, no elevated or
critical fire weather conditions are expected due to moist fuels.
