.DISCUSSION...

First of all, we hope everyone is having a Happy Thanksgiving! I
know we are all thankful for the beautiful weather out there today.
Temperatures this afternoon have made it into the 70`s under mostly
sunny skies with very light winds!

A shortwave will help dampen a large upper ridge to our west over
the next couple of days. Ahead of this wave, weak lee troughing will
develop over the area and southwest winds will develop Friday
afternoon. This will in turn bring in well above normal
temperatures, even record highs possibly. The current record for
11/24 at Midland Int`l is 83. A dry cold front arrives early
Saturday morning bringing temperatures back closer to normal.
Upper ridging builds back in across the area late in the weekend
and early next week. Expect temperatures to shoot back well above
normal with more records being threatened, especially Monday.

Our next storm system will move across the West toward the region
early next week. Models disagree with its evolution, but the
trough will bring another front through Tuesday. Nonetheless,
temperatures will again fall closer to normal. On a side note, there
is still no sign of cold air through the rest of the month into
early December.
