Winds during the morning hours will be from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph, then become north during the afternoon, at 15 to 25 mph, with higher gusts.

(Friday night through next Thursday) Issued at 201 PM CST Thu Mar 4 2021 Due to the cold frontal passage mentioned in the short term forecast discussion, cool and dry conditions will continue into this weekend. Look for high temperatures to gradually warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s by the middle part of next week. The next disturbance may develop over the Four Corners Region bringing our next possibility for rainfall. However, this remains highly uncertain at this time. && .AVIATION...
