.DISCUSSION...
COLD FRONT HAS PUSHED ALL THE WAY INTO THE SOUTHEAST TEXAS
PANHANDLE EARLY THIS MORNING. THIS FRONT WILL CONTINUE ITS
SOUTHWARD JOURNEY AND NORTH WINDS IN THE 15 TO 30 MPH RANGE WITH
HIGHER GUSTS WILL SPREAD ACROSS THE PANHANDLES TODAY. WINDS WILL
THEN DECREASE FAIRLY QUICKLY WITH SUNSET AND THEY WILL START TO
TURN AROUND TO THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST IN RESPONSE TO A NEW LEE-
SIDE TROUGH DEVELOPING TO OUR WEST. GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS ON
MONDAY WILL HELP TO SEND TEMPERATURES BACK TO AROUND NORMAL AND
THEN TEMPERATURES WILL SOAR TO 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FOR
TUESDAY AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT MOVING SOUTHWARD FROM CANADA. THE
COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE PANHANDLES ON WEDNESDAY. AT THIS
POINT IT LOOKS LIKE THE BEST CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION WITH THIS
FRONT WILL STAY NORTH AND EAST OF OUR AREA. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL
THEN START TO REBOUND BACK INTO THE 60S FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
AS AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE TO OUR WEST NUDGES EASTWARD A LITTLE AND
HEIGHTS RISE.
