.DISCUSSION...
Upper low pressure system continues to slowly migrate to our east
and was located across West Central Miss late this evening. Radar
continues to indicate some patchy light rain across our eastern
zones but amounts are very light if still measurable. IR imagery
showing the cloud cover has cleared most of NE TX but will
continue taking its time clearing the remaining portions of our
region. Would not be surprised to see the cloud cover hang on
through the morning hours on Wed across our eastern zones.

For the update...have lowered pops to slight chance category...
changed precip type to light rain and kept the mention along and
east of a line from Prescott, Ar...to just east of Bossier City...
to east of Many, Louisiana. Temps will be tricky as overnight lows
will greatly depend on the progression of the clearing line.
Believe fcst min temp forecast is in the ballpark so made no
additional changes concerning temps.

Update out shortly...13.
