.SHORT TERM...Tonight... 
Cloud cover looks to remain in place over the area tonight.  This
should hold overnight temps in the 40s. There could be some spotty
showers along with patchy fog.  A cold front is set to begin 
moving into the OK Panhandle around sunrise as a mid-level 
longwave trough crosses the Great Plains.

.LONG TERM...Friday through Thursday...
Remnants of Tropical Storm Sergio still expected to get caught up
in strengthening southwest flow aloft, crossing Baja and 
northwest Mexico on Friday, and to be poised to cross southern 
parts of the forecast area on Saturday.  Chances for rain 
increase Friday night and Saturday with southern sections expected
to have the best opportunity to receive appreciable rain.  

Cold front expected to make its move late Saturday night and 
Sunday, with chances for accumulating snows Sunday and Sunday 
night.  Northwest sections expected to cool enough early for an 
all-snow precipitation type Sunday morning.  A transition zone of
rain/snow expected to advance southeast across the forecast area 
Sunday and Sunday night.  The far southeast Texas Panhandle is 
expected to stay all liquid.  At this point, snow totals of 2 to 
6 inches look to be possible across northwest sections, generally 
west of a line from Guymon to Dalhart.  East of this line, 
amounts up to 2 inches have been forecast.  Areas east of a line 
from Canadian to Amarillo to Hereford look more likely to have 
totals below one inch. 

Cold weather expected through Monday night, with a hard freeze
likely Sunday night and Monday night across the northwestern 2/3
of the Combined Panhandles.  Respectable warmup expected on 
Tuesday and Wednesday as returning sunshine allows highs to rise 
into the 50s.
