.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 345 PM CST Sat Jan 12 2019/ 

SHORT TERM...Tonight...
The upper level low responsible for bringing the OK Panhandle snow 
is moving off to the east. Temps will be colder tonight than last 
night. As surface high pressure settles on the area, winds will ease 
to near calm tonight. This coupled with moisture filtering into the 
western Panhandles at the 700mb level, will bring areas of fog 


LONG TERM...Sunday through Saturday...
Cold surface high pressure ridge will remain in place Sunday.  
Weak isentropic upglide may lead to the development of light rain 
or light snow over far western sections on Sunday.  No 
accumulations of snow are expected. 

Clouds expected to dissipate on Monday, with highs returning to
values near normal.  Tuesday and Wednesday expected to be warmer,
especially across the southern half of the forecast area, where
the impacts of a weak cold front expected to be minimized.  This
cold front expected to slip into north and northeast sections
Tuesday and Wednesday.  

Deep zonal flow on Thursday leads to the warmest day of the
forecast.  Strong cold front Friday expected to bring much colder
conditions Friday night and Saturday.  Pops Friday and Friday 
night offered by Blend were capped at 20 percent.
