.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 500 AM CST Fri Dec 6 2019/ 

SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

..Another Cold Front and Cooler...

Another cold front has moved across Texas, and it's producing 
gusty winds, from the north, early this morning. This front will 
result in much cooler temperatures today. Although winds will 
diminish later this afternoon, cool air will remain in place 
tonight, as temperatures fall into the lower to mid 30s.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday through Thursday)

..Possible Rain and Temperature Swings...

Temperatures rebound for this weekend, before another cold front
early next week brings cooler air and the potential for rain.
Another cold front still looks likely for Monday, and it's
associated upper disturbance may help initiate showers beginning
Monday. The flow aloft by Monday will shift and be mainly from the
southwest. As the upper trough axis moves across West Central
Texas Tuesday into Wednesday, rain chances increase. Then rain
chances diminish, as the upper system moves farther east. Cooler
temperatures, with the early-week cold front, will rebound by 
late week, as low-level flow returns to West Central Texas, from 
the south.
