.DISCUSSION...
The upper level pattern will continue to be dominated by a trough
over the eastern U.S. with a ridge over the western U.S. through
this forecast.  A short wave trough will occasionally move down the
back side of the eastern U.S. trough and across the Panhandles
through this forecast.

One such short wave trough will move across the region on Thursday.
Another shot of colder air will move into the region in association
with this trough. A few flurries can not be ruled out tonight into
Thursday with this system, but at this point it looks like the lower
layers of the atmosphere will be too dry to allow many flakes to
make it to the ground, so will leave the mention of them out of this
forecast.

On Friday, afternoon highs are expected to warm some and the winds
will get stronger as the pressure gradient tightens. This may allow
for some elevated fire weather conditions mainly across the western
Panhandles where relative humidity values may drop to around 20
percent.

Highs will warm into the 60s for Saturday and Sunday and then they
should fall back into the 50s for Monday and Tuesday as another
short wave trough helps to drive a cold front southward through the
Panhandles.
