SUBSIDE THIS EVENING INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

COLDER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO FILTER INTO THE REGION BEHIND THE
FRONT TONIGHT. THE COMBINATION OF THE COLD AIR AND SOME NORTH
WINDS WILL CAUSE WIND CHILLS TO DROP DOWN BETWEEN ZERO AND 10
ABOVE LATE THIS EVENING INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

THE POTENTIAL FOR WINTRY WEATHER AND POSSIBLY SOME TRAVEL IMPACT
REMAINS POSSIBLE FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK...

AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DIVE DOWN INTO THE
REGION IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY. AS IT
DOES...A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL PLUNGE SOUTH THROUGH THE PLAINS IN
ADVANCE OF THE SYSTEM. THE LATEST DATA CONTINUES TO INDICATE THAT
THERE WILL BE ENOUGH MOISTURE AND LIFT BACK BEHIND THE FRONT IN
THE COLD AIR TO PRODUCE PRECIPITATION. A WINTRY MIX IS POSSIBLE AT
ONSET...WITH A CHANGE OVER TO SNOW LIKELY WEDNESDAY NIGHT MAINLY
NORTH OF INTERSTATE 40. THE HIGHEST POTENTIAL FOR SNOW ACCUMULATION
AND POSSIBLY SOME MINOR TRAVEL IMPACT WILL BE ALONG AND NORTH OF
HIGHWAY 412 AND EAST OF HIGHWAY 75. HOWEVER...THE FORECAST DETAILS
ARE LIKELY GOING TO CHANGE SOME AS WE CONTINUE TO GET A BETTER IDEA
ON HOW THINGS WILL EVOLVE. STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECAST UPDATES.
