.DISCUSSION...
LOW PRESSURE OVER NORTHERN FLORIDA SPENT TODAY MOVING EVER SO
SLIGHTLY ENE. TEMPERATURES WERE ABLE TO REACH 69 THE LAST HOUR IN
SPITE OF THE MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES, SO STILL A PLEASANT DAY OUT MINUS
THE FEW LIGHT SHOWERS FROM THIS MORNING. THIS EVENING IS EXPECTED
TO BE DRY WITH LOW TEMPERATURES AROUND 50 DEGREES. CLOUDS SHOULD
ERODE FROM THE WEST AS THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED LOW TIGHTENS AND
CONTINUES TO MOVE NORTHEAST...PULLING ANY PRECIP CHANCES ALONG
WITH IT. EXPECTING A PLEASANT WEEKEND AS WE AWAIT THE NEXT SYSTEM.
MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WILL ALLOW TO TEMPERATURES
TO WARM INTO THE MID TO UPPER 70S.

A STRENGTHENING SURFACE LOW WILL TRACK ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES
REGION MONDAY AND TUESDAY INTRODUCING OUR NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN AND
THUNDER. STRENGTHENING SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL ALLOW TEMPS TO REMAIN
RELATIVELY WARM SUNDAY NIGHT...THEN PRECIP CHANCES INCREASE
THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON MONDAY AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT.
SOME THUNDER IS POSSIBLE WITH THIS SYSTEM DURING THE DAY ON
MONDAY... THEN SOUNDINGS BECOME SATURATED AFTER 00Z TUESDAY INDICATING
SOME PERIODS OF MODERATE RAINFALL AS THE SYSTEM MOVES THROUGH
OVERNIGHT. THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO CLEAR THE MID STATE BY TUESDAY
AFTERNOON. MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE ALLOW FOR
SEASONABLE OR JUST ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURE FROM TUESDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY. WPC 5 DAY QPF INDICATES ONLY 0.25 TO 0.50 INCHES OF
RAINFALL FROM NOW THROUGH NEXT THURSDAY. ANOTHER FRONTAL SYSTEM
WITH SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY.
DIDN`T STRAY TOO FAR FROM MOS TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST.
