EVENING UPDATE.

.DISCUSSION...
NOT MUCH CHANGE TO THE FORECAST IS NEEDED FOR THE UPDATE THIS
EVENING. OFF/ON SHOWERS CONTINUE TO PUSH NE ACROSS THE CWFA IN
RESPONSE TO WAVES OF ENERGY ROTATING AROUND THE UPPER LOW OVER THE
CENTRAL PLAINS/SFC LOW OVER THE ARKLAMISS. TEMPS ARE HOLDING STEADY
IN THE UPPER 40S/LOWER 50S ACROSS THE AREA, AND ARE ON TRACK WITH
FORECAST VALUES FOR THE REST OF TONIGHT (REMAINING NEARLY STEADY
THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT WITH THE BLANKET OF CLOUD COVER/SHOWER ACTIVITY
EXPECTED).

A FEW LIGHTNING STRIKES HAVE BEEN NOTED ON THE REGIONAL RADAR DISPLAY
SO FAR THIS EVENING, BUT THEY`VE BEEN PRETTY FEW/FAR BETWEEN. WILL
RETAIN THE SCHC THUNDER THRU MIDNIGHT/CHC THUNDER 06-12Z AS AN
ADDITIONAL WAVE APPROACHES FROM CENTRAL MS. SEVERAL CONVECTIVE BANDS
ARE NOTED DEVELOPING UPSTREAM (TO OUR SW) AND THIS TREND WILL
CONTINUE OFF/ON THRU DAYBREAK. EVENING SOUNDINGS STILL SUGGEST THE
MAIN THREAT FROM ANY STORMS OVERNIGHT WOULD BE SMALL HAIL WITH MEAGER
LAPSE RATES IN THE MID-LEVELS, SO WILL RETAIN THE MENTION OF THIS
THREAT IN THE HWO.

WILL FRESHEN WORDING IN THE ZONES AND RESEND THEM SHORTLY.
