DISCUSSION...

VERY QUIET FORECAST CONTINUES...WITH NOTHING IN THE WAY TO WEATHER
HAZARDS TO WORRY ABOUT INTO AT LEAST NEXT WEEKEND.

COLD FRONT THAT PASSED THROUGH THE REGION OVERNIGHT STRETCHES FROM
NEAR THE BIG BEND REGION OF TEXAS...THROUGH NORTH TEXAS...AND INTO
CENTRAL ARKANSAS. THE SURFACE RIDGE AXIS IS POSITIONED JUST EAST
OF THE ROCKIES...AND WILL MOVE TO THE SOUTH AND EAST THROUGH THE
NIGHT AND INTO TOMORROW AS THE COLD FRONT CONTINUES TO PUSH TOWARD
THE GULF OF MEXICO. AS A RESULT...TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER
TONIGHT BY A COUPLE OF DEGREES COMPARED TO LAST NIGHT...AND HIGHS
TOMORROW WILL BE SEVERAL DEGREES COOLER THAN TODAYS. SUNDAY
MORNING TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE THE COOLEST OF THE WEEKEND DUE TO
THE NEAREST APPROACH OF THE SURFACE HIGH.

SOUTH WINDS WILL MAKE A QUICK RETURN FOR SUNDAY AHEAD OF THE NEXT
COLD FRONT...WITH NEAR TO ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES LIKELY BOTH
SUNDAY AND MONDAY. THE FRONT IS LIKELY TO COME THROUGH DRY IN MOST
SPOTS...WITH MOISTURE STILL ON THE LOW SIDE...ALTHOUGH ISOLATED
SHOWERS MAY STILL OCCUR MAINLY NORTH OF INTERSTATE 40. THIS FRONT
WILL FEATURE OUR ONLY EVEN SEMI REAL POTENTIAL FOR RAIN DURING
THE UPCOMING 7 DAYS.

BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES SHOULD PREVAIL THROUGH THE REST OF NEXT
WEEK IN THE WAKE OF THE EARLY WEEK FRONT...AS A SLOW MOVING UPPER
LOW CENTER IN THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES KEEPS COOL HIGH
PRESSURE IN THE REGION THROUGH THIS TIME FRAME.
