Discussion...
a warming trend will last into the weekend as an upper-level ridge
builds over the Southern Plains. By Monday...a storm system and
associated cold front will arrive in the Central Plains...and
continue to advance southeast. The front should pass through
Oklahoma and North Texas Monday night...bringing our next chance
for rain.

Temperatures will rise to record or near-record values this
weekend...then return to more seasonable numbers on Tuesday.

Beyond the range of this forecast...models have become a little
more insistent that significantly cooler-than-normal temperatures
will arrive around the end of next week...at least briefly.
