Breezy north winds have started to decrease and will continue to
decrease to around 10 knots and become more northwesterly


.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 251 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2017/

Weather through the forecast period should be relatively quiet. A
surface trough has made its way through the FA this morning and has
brought winds back to the north to northwest. The biggest effect it
will have on today`s weather is giving us breezy conditions. Winds
will drop to less than 10 mph overnight and turn more to the west as
the surface trough pushes further east. Upper level flow will become
more northwesterly this weekend as the Hudson Bay low pushes its way
to the eastern CONUS and the upper ridge to our west expands
eastward. The expanding high in addition to westerly surface winds
will allow temps to warm into the mid 60s to around 70 by Sunday. A
weak front is expected to push southward into the FA by late Monday
but should have minimal impact on temperatures as the transported
airmass will be fairly modified. At best it will keep highs in
the upper 50s and low 60s on Tuesday. Another weaker front will be
possible mid to late next week an upper level disturbance pushes
southward. All fropas are expected to be dry as surface moisture
will stay well south and east of the region through at least the
next week.
