.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 428 PM CST Fri Feb 24 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Cold front continued to move across the Four State Region this
afternoon and the winds associated with it have been rather strong
and gusty. Will let the current lake wind advisory expire at 4 PM
CST. The winds will continue to be gusty but will gradually taper
off during the evening. High pressure and colder air to continue
to spread into the area with cold temperatures over the next
couple of nights and days. For the late half of the weekend, the
surface high pressure bringing the cool weather will shift east of
the area returning gulf moisture and a warm front. A wet period
looks to be in store for next week as the pattern aloft indicated
a series of upper level disturbances riding across the area with
several fronts lifting back across the area followed by cold
fronts as the upper pattern shows a gradually amplifying long
wave trough across the central and southwest sections of the
country. For the later half of next week with the upper trough
passing to the east, riding aloft will be returning dry
conditions. /06/
