.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 336 PM CDT WED SEP 28 2016/

DISCUSSION...Radar depicting just isolated showers over the near
coastal waters, dry elsewhere. Satellite showing just a few cu
dotting the area with lower dewpoints area-wide, and some thin
cirrus aloft. Have seen temperatures again warm to or just above
late September norms, but lower relative humidity values has
yielded a rather pleasant day. A shot of cooler and drier air
on the way.

Deep low currently positioned over Indiana progged with associated
cold front arcing through the mid-Mississippi valley and across the
south plains. Low progged to ease slowly south over the next 24
hours, hanging up over the lower Ohio valley Thursday and Friday,
then ejecting northeast over the weekend. Cold front will be
rocketing across the area late tonight and early Thursday
ushering in the driest and coolest temperatures thus far this
season. Front will come through dry with moisture availability
limited. PWATs then plummet to below one inch through the
remainder of the week on an incoming northerly flow through the
column.

Tropical storm Matthew is currently advancing across the Windward
Islands. Matthew is expected to maintain on a westward track over
the next few days while gradually strengthening.

MARINE...A dry cold front will advance across the northwest gulf
Thursday morning followed by a brief moderate offshore flow.
