Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lubbock TX
1129 PM CST Thu Feb 23 2017

.AVIATION...
VFR. Cold front with generally light N winds will reach CDS
shortly, then PVW and LBB around 3 and 5 A.M., respectively. This
front should stall from near Clovis to Seminole by late A.M.,
before drifting NE thru LBB and possibly PVW ahead of 15 to 25
knot WNW winds in the afternoon.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 616 PM CST Thu Feb 23 2017/

Quick update to account for a much faster cold front that is
already exiting the eastern OK Panhandle ahead of stout northerly
winds. Present indications and select high resolution models
support this front reaching Childress from 11 PM-midnight, and
clearing the Lubbock area well before sunrise. Low temps were also
lowered a touch for this expedited arrival. Unfortunately, such
an aggressive front raises doubt over the credibility of the Fire
Wx Watch and blowing dust forecast for Friday, but this will be
revisited in later forecasts.

Otherwise, fire personnel this evening and overnight should be
alert to this looming northerly wind shift which could rekindle
any hotspots leftover from earlier fires.
