.DISCUSSION...
WEAK COLD FRONT CONINTUES TO MAKE ITS WAY SLOWLY SWD UNDER NWLY
FLOW ALOFT THIS AFTERNOON...AND HAS AIDED OUR TEMPS ACROSS THE
I-20 VC AND SWD IN REACHING INTO THE UPPER 70S SO FAR. THE FRONT
WILL LIKELY WASH OUT SOMEWHERE ACROSS OUR REGION THIS EVENING
AHEAD OF ANOTHER STRONGER COLD AIR PUSH EXPECTED TO COME EARLY
FRIDAY. WITH DEWPOINTS RECOVERING INTO THE LOW TO MID 40S TONIGHT
ACROSS OUR SRN AREAS...LIGHT WINDS...AND CLEAR SKIES
EXPECTED...SOME PATCHY FOG WILL BE POSSIBLE AROUND SUNRISE.

FRIDAY`S COLD PUSH WILL KEEP US NEAR SEASONAL NORMALS FOR
SATURDAY...BUT WILL BE SHORT-LIVED. DEEP UPPER TROF FCST TO MOVE
OFF THE E COAST LATE SATURDAY/EARLY SUNDAY...WHICH WILL ALLOW FOR
MORE WNWLY FLOW ALOFT AHEAD OF A SHORTWAVE. SLY SFC FLOW WILL
QUICKLY RETURN TO THE REGION SUNDAY AS A SFC LOW DEVELOPS OVER THE
TX PANHANDLE IN RESPONSE TO THE APPROACHING SHORTWAVE...WHICH WILL
ALLOW FOR TEMPS TO WARM BACK UP ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE SRN HALF OF
THE REGION. ADDITIONALLY...THE RETURN FLOW WILL HELP TO INCREASE
LL MOISTURE AHEAD OF THE DISTURBANCE/COLD FRONT. A FEW SHWRS WILL
BE POSSIBLE AS A REUSULT ON SUNDAY...BUT THE BETTER CHANCES WILL
COME IN ON MONDAY AS THE TROF DEEPENS AND THE COLD FRONT BECOMES
MORE DEFINED AS IT MOVES ACROSS OUR REGION. SOME DISCREPANCIES
BETWEEN THE GFS/EURO EXIST WITH REGARD TO TIMING/POSITION OF THE
TROF...SO HAVE CONTINUED WITH THE MORE-CONSERVATIVE-THAN-GUIDANCE
50 POPS. WITH REGARD TO ANY SEVERE WEATHER THREAT...INSTABILITY
STILL LOOKS TO BE THE LIMITING FACTOR FOR A RISK OVER OUR REGION.
WE WILL LIKELY STRUGGLE TO SEE ANY BETTER THAN ISOLD THUNDER.

RAIN IS FCST TO COME TO AN END BY MONDAY NIGHT...LEAVING US WITH
NW FLOW ALOFT AND HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SFC ONCE AGAIN...WHICH WILL
CARRY US PRETTY MUCH THROUGH THE END OF THE PD. /12/

SFC FRONTAL BOUNDARY HAS JUST ABOUT STALLED JUST NORTH OF THE
INTERSTATE 20 CORRIDOR TERMINALS LATE THIS MORNING. THIS BOUNDARY

TO WSW WIND TODAY AHEAD OF THE FRONT NEAR 10KTS WITH AN OCCASIONAL
GUST TO NEAR 20KTS AT TIMES THIS AFTERNOON. NORTH OF THE FRONT
TODAY AT THE TXK/ELD TERMINALS...A WNW TO NW WIND WILL CONTINUE
