.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL SHORT WAVE OVER FAR NORTHWEST MEXICO EARLY THIS MORNING
WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS IT MOVES TOWARD THE PANHANDLES TODAY AND
TONIGHT. OUR AREA MAY GET GRAZED BY THE NORTHERN EXTENT OF THE PRECIP
IN ASSOCIATION WITH THIS SHORT WAVE. CHANCES OF RAIN LOOK TO BE BEST
ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST AND EASTERN PARTS OF THE CWA. SOME RAIN/SNOW AND
FREEZING DRIZZLE MAY BE POSSIBLE TONIGHT ACROSS THE NORTH.
THERE IS SOME LOW LEVEL LIFT WITHIN AN AREA OF HIGHER SURFACE
MOISTURE ACROSS THESE AREAS. NO SNOW OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS ARE
EXPECTED AS ANY PRECIP WILL BE VERY LIGHT.

NEXT SHORT WAVE TROUGH MOVES THIS WAY THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY.
AGAIN IT LOOKS LIKE MOST OF THE PRECIP WITH THIS WAVE WILL PASS SOUTH
OF THE TEXAS PANHANDLE. HOWEVER...HAVE CONTINUED WITH THE SLIGHT
CHANCE OF LIGHT SNOW AND LIGHT RAIN FOR THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS
WAVE COULD MOVE A LITTLE FURTHER NORTH. AGAIN...NO ACCUMULATION OF
SNOW IS EXPECTED.

WILL LEAVE THE REST OF THE FORECAST DRY. THERE COULD BE A COUPLE OF
SHORT WAVE TROUGHS THAT CROSS THE REGION...BUT THEY LOOK PRETTY
MOISTURE STARVED AT THIS POINT. THEY WILL BE MOVING THIS WAY MORE
FROM THE NORTHWEST...SO MOST OF THEIR PRECIP SHOULD GET WRUNG OUT
OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

AFTER A FEW DAYS OF TEMPERATURES AROUND OR JUST BELOW NORMAL...
TEMPERATURES WILL REBOUND SOME TO JUST ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE WEEKEND
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
