.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will push through the Panhandles overnight. The airmass
behind this front is drier, so not expecting low clouds and fog
behind it.

Fast zonal flow aloft will encourage another lee-side trough to
develop on Thursday and the downslope winds will help to push highs
above normal again.

The models do not agree on the timing of the next short wave trough
that moves from the Pacific Northwest on Thursday night to the
Panhandles by early Saturday morning. This short wave trough helps
to drive a cold front through the region late Friday afternoon or
Friday night. Winds are expected to be pretty strong behind this
front.

After a below normal day for highs on Saturday, temperatures should
slowly modify through early next week as upper heights rise.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
Elevated fire weather conditions will be likely on Friday. Southwest
to west winds are expected to get up into the 20 to 25 mph range and
relative humidity values will get down to around 20 percent across
much of the area. High clouds should keep the Panhandles from
getting into critical fire weather conditions both on winds and
relative humidity values.
