.AVIATION...
/00Z TAFS/

VFR conditions are expected for the remainder of the TAF period.
Some breezy conditions may persist until sundown across the
terminals before becoming weaker. However, the low level jet may
kick in later tonight bringing in breezy conditions and possibly
some winds gusts across KSJT and KABI tonight beginning around 5Z.
Otherwise, a cold front is expected to pass through the region on
Tuesday. This will cause a wind shift that will leave behind
gusty northerly winds.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 245 PM CST Mon Nov 20 2017/

SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Tuesday)

Gusty south winds continue across West Central Texas this afternoon,
with temperatures climbing well into the mid and upper 60s. Most
areas will lose the wind gusts after sunset, but wind speeds will
remain high enough to keep overnight temperatures from bottoming out
as they have the last several mornings. Looking for readings in
the 40s for most areas, with just a few of the most cold-air
drainage prone locations dropping into the 30s.

Warm again on Tuesday, despite the passage of a cold front right
around noon. Biggest concern with this front will be gusty north
winds. Wind speeds will be high enough to combine with the dry air
mass in place to produce elevated fire weather conditions,
especially across the area roughly west of a San Angelo to
Sweetwater line. These areas will need to be monitored to make sure
they don`t need to be upgraded for Tuesday afternoon.

LONG TERM...
(Wednesday through next Tuesday)

Dry and benign weather continues...

The upper level ridge over the western half of the CONUS will keep
West Central Texas in a dry, northwest flow over for the next
seven days. Dry weather with near to slightly above normal
temperatures will continue through the holiday weekend. By
Wednesday morning, a surface high will move into central Oklahoma.
Winds will be out of the north during the day on Wednesday and
the cold air intrusion will keep temperatures below normal. Highs
on Wednesday will be in the upper 50s to low 60s. Overnight lows
on Wednesday will range from the low to mid 30s across the I-10
corridor with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s across the
rest of the area.

By Thanksgiving Day and Friday, temperatures will climb into the low
to mid 70s under mostly sunny skies. During the day on Saturday, a
dry cold front will move across the area, and will knock
temperatures back into the upper 60s to low 70s over the weekend.
Southerly flow returns on Monday and temperatures will once
again, warm back into the low to mid 70s for Monday and Tuesday.
