.DISCUSSION...
THE UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM THAT HAS BROUGHT CLOUDS AND OCCASIONAL
SHOWERS TO THE AREA IS CURRENTLY LOCATED OVERHEAD AND SLOWLY
DROPPING TO THE SOUTHEAST. THIS WILL KEEP THE AREA UNDER CLOUDS
FOR THE REST OF THE DAY AND COULD GENERATE A FEW ADDITIONAL SNOW
SHOWERS. CHANCES FOR WETTING PRECIPITATION WILL BE DIMINISHING
OVERNIGHT AS SKIES START TO CLEAR. BRISK TRANSPORT WINDS AND
DECENT MIXING UP TO AROUND 5000 FEET WILL RESULT IN GOOD TO VERY
GOOD VENTILATION THIS AFTERNOON. HOWEVER LOWERING MIXING HEIGHTS
AND WEAKER TRANSPORT WINDS WILL BRING VENT RATES BACK INTO THE
POOR CATEGORY FOR FRIDAY.
