DISCUSSION...  
GENTLE BREEZES WILL PREVAIL TODAY AS A SURFACE TROUGH PASSES  
THROUGH. TEMPERATURES WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ABOVE NORMAL.  
 
A LEE-SIDE TROUGH WILL STRENGTHEN SOME OVERNIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING  
AHEAD OF ANOTHER COLD FRONT WHICH WILL MOVE THROUGH THE REGION  
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. DOWNSLOPE WARMING AHEAD OF THE FRONT  
MAY BE JUST ENOUGH TO SEND HIGH TEMPERATURES INTO RECORD TERRITORY.  
 
HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE BACK DOWN IN THE 60S FOR SATURDAY BEHIND  
THE FRONT.  
 
TEMPERATURES WILL START TO REBOUND SOME ON SUNDAY AND ESPECIALLY  
MONDAY AS ANOTHER LEE-SIDE TROUGH ENCOURAGES DOWNSLOPE WINDS AGAIN.  
WINDS MAY GET A LITTLE BREEZY ON MONDAY AND THE FIRE DANGER MAY BE  
ELEVATED, BUT THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON HOW STRONG THE WINDS MAY BE  
AS THE MODELS DO NOT AGREE ON THE STRENGTH OR THE TIMING OF THE NEXT  
DRY SHORT WAVE TROUGH THAT WILL BE CROSSING THE PANHANDLES EARLY  
NEXT WEEK. AT ANY RATE, THIS SHORT WAVE TROUGH SHOULD HELP TO DRIVE  
A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE AREA, KNOCKING TEMPERATURES BACK CLOSER TO  
NORMAL FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.
