Discussion...
a progressive flow pattern will reside across the central and
Southern Plains through the weekend. Northwest flow will slowly
become more zonal by Fri/Sat...with rising heights and increasing
afternoon temperatures.

A strong shortwave trough will traverse the region
tonight...bringing another weak front through the area. This will
do little more than promote increased west/northwest winds...and
act to maintain highs in the 50s and low 60s tomorrow. Southerly
flow will resume on Thursday...and last into the upcoming weekend.
With breezy southwesterly surface winds and a dry airmass in
place...expect high temperatures in the 60s and 70s both Friday
and Saturday. The spell of warmer weather will come to an end
Sunday into Monday...as another front moves through the area. At
this time...it looks to be a dry frontal passage...and no rain is
forecast through at least Sunday night.

Long range models then point to increasing rain chances by middle to
late next week as warm advection increases within southwesterly
middle level flow...and a slowly lifting warm front.
