... 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. Here is what we know right now:

1) an initial cold front is expected Monday evening before the main
Arctic surge arrives through the day Wednesday. 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) Thursday morning wind chill values could range from 5 to -5 degrees.
A Wind Chill Advisory issuance looks unlikely as surface winds
are expected to be very light across the panhandles.

3) snow is looking more unlikely at this time. However, a few
flurries can't be ruled out across the eastern Oklahoma Panhandle
Wednesday. Winds will be gusty during the day Wednesday across the
panhandles.

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 an extended period of time on
exposed skin.

as on our website at www.Weather.Gov/Amarillo for updates to the
forecast.
