... Coldest conditions so far this season expected midweek for the
Texas and Oklahoma panhandles...

An Arctic airmass is expected to settle over the Panhandle midweek.
Once in place... our high temperatures will struggle to reach the
freezing mark while our overnight low temperatures drop into the
teens and even single digits. While some uncertainties exist with the
forecast... here is what we know right now:

1) an initial cold front is expected Monday evening before the main
Arctic surge arrives Wednesday morning. The Arctic airmass is
expected to hold high temperatures below freezing for much of the
area Wednesday and Thursday before a moderating trend begins on
Friday.

2) Wednesday night into Thursday morning will bring the lowest temperatures
this season. Single digit lows are expected across the northwest half
of the combined panhandles with teens elsewhere.

3) Thursday morning wind chill values could range from 4 to -9
degrees. A Wind Chill Advisory may be needed on Thursday and/or
Friday mornings for portions of the panhandles.

4) light snow will be possible Tuesday night and Wednesday... mainly
across the northeast half of the combined panhandles. Blowing snow
may also occur on Wednesday.

Overall, we are looking at very cold weather this week. Take action
to ensure pets and livestock have ways to stay warm and access to
water. Be prepared to dress warmly as sub-freezing temperatures
could result in frostbite over a short period of time on exposed
skin.
