PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 222 PM CST Wed Nov 14 2018/

No significant changes to the previous forecast with fairly quiet
weather expected for much of the next 7 days. The warming trend
will continue the next few days as the cold surface high pressure
shifts east and surface winds slowly return to the south. Low
temperatures look to remain above freezing for many areas tonight
then warm into the 60s Thursday afternoon. Expect temperatures a
few degrees warmer Friday before a cold front arrives Saturday,
knocking temperatures back into the 50s for Sunday and Monday. The
general consensus of the forecast models show the front arriving
in northern areas by mid afternoon. Areas farther south should
have enough time to warm into the 60s, or perhaps into the 70s for
some, before the front moves through those areas. That being
said, high temperatures Saturday will be highly dependent on the
timing of the front. Conditions will remain dry through the
remainder of the work week and this weekend so no precipitation is
forecast at this time. Temperatures will begin to rebound Tuesday
through midweek with rain chances potentially returning during
this time as a southern stream upper trough approaches the region
from the west.
