.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 254 PM CST Thu Dec 8 2016/

DISCUSSION...
North winds ushering in cold dry air across the region today with
temperatures unable to climb out of the 30s across the Interstate
30 corridor. Skies to gradually improve from the north through
the evening as drier air deepens through the atmospheric column.
Overnight temperatures to be governed by cold air advection as
surface high becomes established over the region. Temperatures to
range from the upper teens across the interstate 30 corridor to
the mid 20s elsewhere.

Temperatures on Friday to climb into the low to mid 40s. With
surface high pressure centered across the region, expect light
winds throughout the day. Additionally, dry air at the surface
and aloft to allow for mostly sunny skies. Temperatures to quickly
fall to below freezing by late evening before again settling into
the mid 20s by daybreak Saturday morning.

Southerly flow to return on Saturday allowing for a gradual
warming trend with highs forecast to climb to around 50. A surface
low to deepen across the Texas panhandle during the weekend
allowing for increased southerly winds and a chance for light
rain showers Saturday night into Sunday. Rain to clear from the
west on Monday as a weak frontal boundary moves across the region.
Temperatures ahead of the front on Monday afternoon to climb into
the 60s. Not much variation in temperatures behind the front due
to the center of the surface high remaining north of the region.
Otherwise, progressive pattern to persist through Tuesday night
with southerly flow returning ahead of the next front that will
bring showers across the region on Wednesday. High pressure
building behind the front may allow for freezing temperatures
early Thursday morning. /05/
