DISCUSSION
 
 
UPPER TROUGH PUSHING THROUGH THE CENTRAL PLAINS AS IT MOVES EAST  
HIGH PRESSURE WILL START TO BUILD IN FROM THE WEST. THIS WILL PUT  
THE REGION INTO NW FLOW ALOFT. ANOTHER TROUGH WILL REINFORCE THE  
FIRST ONE OVER THE EASTERN US LEAVING THE REGION STUCK INTO BETWEEN  
THE RIDGE TO THE WEST AND TROUGH TO THE EAST MOST OF THE WEEK.  
TOWARD NEXT WEEKEND A TROUGH MOVING DOWN ACROSS THE ROCKIES WILL ACT  
TO PUSH THE RIDGE OFF INTO THE PACIFIC.  
 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE ON A ROLLER COASTER OF UP AND DOWN AS MULTIPLE  
FRONTS MOVE THROUGH. THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF COLD FRONTS CAME  
THROUGH LAST NIGHT RESULTING IN A CHILLY MORNING WITH SUNNY... COOL  
AND DRY CONDITIONS TODAY. THE NEXT COLD FRONTS WILL BE MONDAY NIGHT  
AND THURSDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL RESULT IN TEMPERATURES GETTING  
KNOCKED DOWN FREQUENTLY THEN WARMING UP BETWEEN THEM AS THE SOUTH  
WIND RETURNS. COULD SEE A HIGH WIND EVENT AT GDP LATE MONDAY NIGHT  
SO WILL GO AHEAD AND ISSUE A WATCH. RADIATIONAL COOLING SHOULD  
ALLOW TEMPS AT MRF TO FALL INTO THE 30S NEXT FEW NIGHTS WITH 30S  
BECOMING MORE WIDESPREAD ACROSS NORTHERN CWA SATURDAY MORNING IN  
POST FRONTAL CONDITIONS.  
 
NO RAIN EXPECTED MOST OF THE WEEK... MODELS THROW SOME SHOWERS IN
