THE FIRST FULL DAY OF WINTER WILL BE NOTED WITH A CHANGE IN THE

THE THREAT OF SNOW WILL END TONIGHT...BUT STRONG NORTH WINDS ON
TUESDAY WILL MAKE FOR A COLD AND BLUSTERY DAY.  WINDS GUSTING ABOVE
50 MPH ARE EXPECTED ON TUESDAY ACROSS MUCH OF THE TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA
PANHANDLES WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES ABOUT TEN DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.

THESE CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE WIND CHILL VALUES IN THE SINGLE DIGITS
AND TEENS ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA DURING THE TIME OF THE MORNING
COMMUTE ON TUESDAY.  THE STRONG WINDS DURING THE DAY WILL KEEP WIND
CHILL VALUES MAINLY IN THE TWENTIES THROUGH MOST OF THE DAY.

THE COLD AND WINDY CONDITIONS WILL COME TO AN END TUESDAY NIGHT.

DEGREES CAN BE EXPECTED.
