401 PM CDT Wed Mar 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...No significant fog development is
expected Thursday morning and Friday morning. Despite the cold front passage,
warmer than normal temperatures will continue through the end of the week. A
closed low will track east across the central plains and increase
rain chances over our area Friday that will continue through
Saturday night. Sunday will be mostly dry but a second closed low will
bring additional rain chances Monday into Tuesday.
