.DISCUSSION...

LATEST RADAR IMAGERY SHOWS INITIAL LINE OF LIGHT SHOWERS ABOUT TO
EXIT THE CWA TO THE EAST. SURFACE OBS SHOW COLD FRONT REMAINS WELL
TO OUR NORTH OVER CENTRAL MO/IL...BUT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA
TONIGHT. ANOTHER ROUND OF LIGHT SHOWERS OR SPRINKLES IS POSSIBLE
WITH THE MAIN FRONTAL BOUNDARY...BUT DOES NOT APPEAR TO WARRANT
EVEN A SLIGHT CHANCE POP AND WILL JUST MENTION SPRINKLES OVER THE
NORTHEAST HALF. TIME HEIGHT PLOTS SHOW LOW LEVEL MOISTURE
REMAINING OVER EASTERN HALF OF THE MID STATE...SO SCATTERED LOW
CLOUDS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE THROUGH THE NIGHT. WHERE CLOUDS
CAN CLEAR...PATCHY FOG WILL BE LIKELY LATE TONIGHT ESPECIALLY
NEAR RIVERS/LAKES.

REMAINDER OF FORECAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND LOOKS DRY AND
SPECTACULAR...WITH LOWS IN THE 30S/40S AND HIGHS IN THE 60S
THROUGH THURSDAY WHICH IS RIGHT AROUND AVERAGE. A SERIES OF QUICK
MOVING UPPER RIDGES/TROUGHS WILL BRING A GRADUAL WARMING TREND AND
ABOVE-NORMAL TEMPERATURES OVER THE WEEKEND...WITH LATEST MEX
GUIDANCE EVEN SHOWING PARTS OF THE AREA NEAR 80 BY SUNDAY...BUT
DID NOT GO QUITE THAT WARM JUST YET. 12Z GFS/ECMWF CONTINUE TO
DEPICT A STRONGER COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE AREA AROUND
TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK...WHICH WOULD KNOCK TEMPS BACK TO NORMAL AND
POSSIBLY BRING OUR NEXT SMALL CHANCE FOR RAIN.
