PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 323 PM CDT THU OCT 22 2020/  
 
SHORT TERM.../TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/  
 
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO REMAIN ACROSS THE REGION TONIGHT,  
WITH OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S AREA-WIDE ALONG WITH  
SOME LOW CLOUDS NEAR DAYBREAK. HOWEVER, LOOK FOR CONDITIONS TO  
CHANGE ACROSS THE REGION OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS.  
 
OUR NEXT WEATHER MAKER WILL BE MOVING TOWARDS THE REGION OVERNIGHT,  
AS AN UPPER TROUGH CONTINUES TO DIG SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE  
CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS THEN EVENTUALLY INTO OUR REGION. THE  
TROUGH WILL BRING A COLD FRONT THROUGH REGION ON FRIDAY. EXPECT A  
CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION AREA-WIDE AS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
WILL DEVELOP ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY AS IT MOVES  
THROUGH. PREVIOUS MODEL RUNS HAD THE BOUNDARY STALLING ACROSS THE  
CWA, BUT NOW IT APPEARS IT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE ENTIRE REGION.  
NORTHWESTERLY WINDS IN WAKE OF THE BOUNDARY WILL BRING IN  
NOTICEABLY COOLER AND DRIER CONDITIONS. TEMPERATURES BY SATURDAY  
MORNING SHOULD FALL TO NEAR CLIMATIC NORMALS. /20/  
 
LONG TERM.../SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/  
 
WEEKEND TO BE CHARACTERIZED BY MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS WITH WEAK  
NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT BECOMING ZONAL AND THEN SOUTHWEST AS THE  
ATMOSPHERE TRANSITIONS INTO A MORE UNSETTLED PATTERN. AT THE  
SURFACE, HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILING AT THE START OF THE PERIOD WILL  
SHIFT EAST WITH LOW-LEVEL SOUTHERLY FLOW RETURNING ON SUNDAY.  
TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY TO RANGE FROM HIGHS IN THE LOWER 60S  
NORTH OF I20 TO THE LOW TO MID 70S SOUTH. OVERNIGHT LOWS ON SATURDAY  
TO FALL INTO THE 50S. HOWEVER, BY SUNDAY, EXPECT MUCH WARMER  
TEMPERATURES WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOWER 80S.  
 
A COLD FRONT WILL LINGER ACROSS THE REGION ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY  
BRINGING INCREASED RAIN CHANCES WITH SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS  
POSSIBLE EACH DAY. DEPENDING ON WHERE THE FRONT SETS UP,  
TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM HIGHS IN THE UPPER 50S BEHIND THE FRONT  
TO THE MID 70S AHEAD OF THE FRONT. ADDITIONALLY, A DEEP UPPER-LEVEL  
TROUGH LAGGING BEHIND THE FRONT WILL MAINTAIN A CONTINUED FETCH OF  
MOISTURE WITHIN SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT ACROSS THE ARKLATEX. MOISTURE  
ABOVE THE COOLER AIRMASS BEHIND THE FRONT WILL LEAD TO  
WIDESPREAD POSTFRONTAL RAINFALL THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT INTO  
WEDNESDAY. BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, THE UPPER TROUGH DEEPENS FURTHER,  
BECOMING A CLOSED LOW MAINLY ACROSS NORTHEAST TEXAS AND MOVES EAST,  
BRINGING DRIER CONDITIONS TO THE REGION BY LATE WEEK. /05/
