PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 239 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017/

DISCUSSION...
North winds will decrease by late this afternoon as the mixing
ceases and the pressure gradient relaxes. Will allow the wind
advisory to expire on time.

A ridge/trough upper level pattern across the U.S. will keep the
Panhandles in a northwest flow.  This flow will be dry for us and it
will help to bring a couple of cold fronts through during this
forecast.

Temperatures are expected to remain at or above normal through this
forecast as the coldest air will stay to the east of us.
