.DISCUSSION...
A northwest flow aloft will bring another short wave trough
southeast through the central plains tonight. This will help to
drive through another cold front across the Panhandles.

Upper level heights will rise on Wednesday ahead of the next strong
short wave moving southeast out of Canada. This should help to push
highs back above normal.

On Thursday, another strong cold front will move south across the
region in association with the short wave trough moving into the
northern plains and Midwest.  Much colder air will spill into the
region Thursday night. Some very light wintry precipitation may be
possible in the western Panhandles Thursday night and early Friday
morning. Some lift does move across the region during this time, but
there will be limited low level moisture. So, at this point, it does
not look like much more than flurries will fall.

Temperatures will be below normal on Saturday and then they will
rebound to around normal by Sunday.
