I just saw this weather statement online concerning the weather forecast and thought everyone on the list should be informed

...COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON WILL ARRIVE EARLY WEDNESDAY... 

AN ARCTIC AIRMASS WILL SPREAD SOUTH THROUGH THE PLAINS STATES ARRIVING IN THE PERMIAN BASIN EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. THIS AIRMASS WILL LIKELY BRING THE COLDEST TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION SO FAR THIS SEASON. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE FORECAST FOR WEDNESDAY ACROSS WEST TEXAS CONTINUES TO DECREASE. LATEST FORECAST DATA INDICATES THAT HIGH TEMPERATURES ON WEDNESDAY WILL NOT MAKE IT OUT OF THE 20S ACROSS THE PERMIAN BASIN. ACROSS THE TRANS PECOS...HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN THE 30S...WHILE NEAR THE RIO GRANDE TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB INTO THE 50S BEFORE THE ARCTIC AIR PUSHES THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS BY WEDNESDAY EVENING. IN THE WAKE OF THE ARCTIC COLD FRONT...NORTHEAST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 15 TO 25 MPH RESULTING IN WIND CHILL READINGS FROM NEAR ZERO TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE ZERO. 

WINDS SHOULD DIMINISH BY WEDNESDAY EVENING. HOWEVER...THE COLD AIRMASS SHOULD REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA THROUGH AT LEAST THURSDAY NIGHT BEFORE A SLOW MODERATION OCCURS INTO THE WEEKEND.
