.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 955 PM CST THU JAN 29 2015/
COLD FRONT IS JUST ABOUT THROUGH THE AREA THIS EVENING...WITH NW FLOW
PRETTY WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE WAKE OF THE SFC BOUNDARY. LOW CLOUDS
HAVE ALSO SPREAD EWD ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA BEHIND THE DEPARTING
FRONT. THESE CLOUDS...ALONG WITH THE INCREASING WIND...HAVE KEPT TEMP
TRENDS FROM DROPPING QUICKLY...EVEN WITH THE PASSAGE OF A COLD FRONT.
HOWEVER...THE INFLUX OF DRIER AIR SHOULD ALLOW FOR TEMPS TO STEADILY
FALL MORE INTO THE 30S OVERNIGHT...AS SFC WINDS GRADUALLY DIMINISH.
SOME LIGHT RETURNS ON AREA RADARS N OF THE AREA MAY SKIRT THE FAR ERN
ZONES LATER THIS EVENING AS WELL IN THE FORM OF SOME VERY LIGHT RAIN
OR DRIZZLE...ALTHOUGH THE INFLUX OF DRIER AIR MAY KEEP ANY OF THIS
LINGERING MOISTURE FROM REACHING THE SFC. IN ANY CASE...THE PROB FOR
ISO SHOWERS LOOKS TO HAVE ENDED FOR AREAS ALONG/E OF I-65 WITH THE
PASSING FRONT...AND AS SUCH HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE FORECAST THIS
EVENING. WINDS/GUSTS HAVE ALSO BEEN REFRESHED BASED ON THE LATEST
TRENDS...BUT OVERALL NO MAJOR CHANGES ARE NEEDED WITH THE AFTERNOON
FORECAST PACKAGE AT THIS POINT.
