.DISCUSSION...

A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP THROUGH THE MIDSOUTH FROM THE

ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONT BEGINNING THIS MORNING WITH ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ALONG AND SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 40. WINDS

DRY AND VERY COLD WEATHER IS FORECAST MONDAY WITH SKIES BEGINNING TO
CLEAR BY AFTERNOON.

AS LOW PRESSURE MOVES ALONG THE NORTHERN GULF AND AN ARCTIC COLD
FRONT MOVES INTO THE REGION FROM THE NORTH.
