.DISCUSSION...

WE`VE STILL GOT A FEW SNOW SHOWERS OR FLURRIES OUT THERE THIS
EVENING ACROSS CHEROKEE COUNTY AND NORTHEAST ALABAMA. MOST RETURNS
ARE VERY LIGHT...AND WE`RE NOT EXPECTING ANY ACCUMULATIONS FROM
THIS ACTIVITY. THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY HAS EXPIRED AS WE`RE
NOT EXPECTING ANY ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOWFALL THROUGH THE
OVERNIGHT HOURS. NORTHWEST WINDS CONTINUE TO PERSIST THIS EVENING
WITH A FEW GUSTS UP TO 20 KNOTS AT TIMES. THAT`S PUSHING THE WIND
CHILL VALUES WELL DOWN INTO THE UPPER TEENS TO LOWER 20S AT THIS
HOUR. THE WINDS WILL EVENTUALLY DIMINISH AFTER MIDNIGHT
TONIGHT...BUT THERE WILL STILL BE ENOUGH WIND TO PRODUCE DOWNRIGHT
FRIGID CONDITIONS OUTSIDE. TEMPERATURES ARE STILL EXPECTED TO DROP
DOWN INTO THE UPPER TEENS ACROSS THE FAR NORTH TO THE LOWER 20S
ALONG THE I-20 CORRIDOR. MIDDLE 20S CAN BE EXPECTED
ELSEWHERE...AND THE FORECAST IS CURRENTLY ON TRACK FOR THE
OVERNIGHT HOURS. CHILLY TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED ONCE AGAIN
TOMORROW WITH NORTHWEST FLOW AT THE SURFACE CONTINUING FOR ONE
MORE DAY.
