.DISCUSSION...
Any lingering light freezing drizzle and light snow across the 
Panhandles will end by mid to late morning. Drier air will allow
for decreasing cloudiness across the forecast area by this
afternoon. With a southern stream shortwave expected to remain
south of the Panhandles around mid week, dry and seasonably to
unseasonably warm conditions are expected through the end of the
week after today. A surface trough will push across the Panhandles
Monday briefly shifting the winds to the north with winds quickly
returning to the south once again Monday night into Tuesday. 
Lee surface low will develop over eastern Colorado by mid to late
this week with surface trough extending south across eastern New 
Mexico. This surface low will deepen and allow for increasing 
south and southwest winds during the latter half of this week with
unseasonably warm and dry conditions expected, especially for 
Thanksgiving Day, as max temps climb into the 60s. Another surface
trough or surface boundary to push across the Panhandles Thursday
night and Friday morning. Cold front to move through the forecast
area Saturday night bringing much colder conditions and chances 
for precip late in the weekend as a northern stream upper system 
approaches the Panhandles Saturday night and Sunday.
