.AVIATION...

VFR conditions will prevail next 24 hours, as SW flow veers
slightly, with a few high clouds.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 303 PM CST Tue Dec 12 2017/

DISCUSSION...

An amplified flow regime with positive (negative) height anomalies
over western (eastern) North America will persist through the next
seven days. Minor short wave troughs embedded within the mean flow
will maintain a parade of cold frontal passages over west Texas
and southeastern New Mexico. Temperatures behind each front are
not expected to be especially cold. Lastly, a lack of any
significant moisture precludes mention of significant weather for
the foreseeable future.
