PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 440 PM CDT Thu Oct 20 2016/

Not much change to the forecast package as the dry weather looks to
continue until Tuesday evening, and only the far eastern Panhandles
look to get a shot at the precip before ridging takes over again.

Ridging will continue to build in from the west and start to warm
temps up as well as swing winds back to the south. Wind the return of
southerly flow, feel that temps will stay up just enough and just
long enough to not need a frost advisory for tonight. A shortwave
ripple will pass through the area Monday while a shortwave trough
passes to the south of the area. Another shortwave ripple will pass
through Tuesday with enough vorticity ahead of a cold front that will
bring moisture to our eastern neighbors, and just clip the far
eastern Panhandles. Ridging builds back in midweek. For now, fire
weather does not seem to be a big concern due to winds not being
strong enough where minimum relative humidity values meet criteria
