Assignment: Predict the 24 hr maximum temperature (deg F) for Midland, TX (KMAF)

When we talk about record-breaking temperatures, usually we mean the coldest low temperatures or the hottest high temperatures for a particular date. But Wednesday's high temperature in Midland, Texas ("The Tall City") could be well below the coldest high temperature for that date. The NWS says that the record coldest low is 53 F, but the forecasts are in the mid-40's. Let's forecast Midland's Tmax for Wednesday and see if they break that record.

Question of the Day: What do you see in the weather situation in West Texas that could cause such low temperatures?
