DISCUSSION...
Please see the 00Z aviation discussion below.

AVIATION...
VFR will apply through the forecast period. A few CIGS near
050-060 are expected before sunrise but will dissipate thereafter.
Winds will remain relatively light and northeasterly overnight and
then become southeasterly late tomorrow morning. A few high clouds
may pass overhead but skies will generally remain clear.

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 238 PM CDT SAT AUG 20 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Cooler and drier air will continue to filter south tonight
into Sunday, making for a clear, cool night and pleasant day
tomorrow. Some of the coolest readings since early June expected
next couple of nights. Other than a few lingering showers near
the Red River, the next day or so will also be dry across the
area.

By Monday, the front that moved through the area today will begin
to lift back north as southwest flow develops in the mid-levels.
With the front, low level moisture will return as well as
precip chances. Several minor disturbances will move northeast
across the Southern Plains through the early part of the upcoming
week, and along with weak waa should result in scattered showers
and thunderstorms.

Stronger wave will move through the central and northern plains
by mid-week, which will push another rather strong cold front, at
least for August, south through the area. This will bring perhaps
a round of stronger storms to the area for Wednesday night.

Slightly stronger mid-level flow and continued presence of
abundant low level moisture through the end of the week into next
weekend will keep rain chances in the forecast. Below normal
temps will also continue.
