Early this morning, a stream of mid-level moisture associated with
strong southwest flow aloft was located from northern Mexico to
Oklahoma. Light rain showers were occurring in this stream, mainly
over parts of the Permian Basin and western Big Country. Around
daybreak, rain chances should come to an end as surface flow becomes
westerly and a mid-level impulse pushes past the area. Clouds
should rapidly clear out by late morning too. In it’s wake,
however, a strong Arctic front will move southward and reach the Big
Country by noon today. As a result, high temperatures will likely
occur before noon for northern areas and by 1 or 2pm for southern
areas. Winds will increase to around 20 MPH and shift out of the
north behind the front this afternoon through tonight. These winds
will advect much colder temperatures into the area overnight and
lows will fall into the upper teens and twenties, thanks to mostly
clear skies. The main axis of an upper trough will pass through the
area tonight, which may bring some light snow or sleet to far
northern parts of the Big Country. No accumulation is expected.
