.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 332 AM CDT Thu Apr 26 2018/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday)...
Upper air analysis last evening showed a low over the Central Plains
and a ridge over the west coast with northwesterly flow across Texas.
At the surface, a cold front stretched along the Texas coast and into
Mexico. Winds across our CWA were from the north to northwest.
Northwesterly upper level flow will continue through this period. Dry
air will continue to move in today and the weather will be dry with
slightly cooler temperatures. Friday another cold front will move
through the region, but with little return flow ahead of it there
won`t be much moist air for it to act on and no precipitation is
likely.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday)...
The upper flow over Texas will become zonal Friday night and then a
low amplitude ridge will build in from the west. This will keep the
weather dry over the weekend. Temperatures will rise a couple of
degrees each day. Monday through Wednesday the dryline will become
active with convection developing and moving eastward through our
CWA. Thunderstorms will form each day during the afternoon and move
across the region through the evening.
