.DISCUSSION...
A few showers and thunderstorms are making their way into the
western part of our CWA associated with a weak low pressure
system. These storms are non-severe but are producing a few
strikes of lightning just north of I-20 and west of I-55. As the
night progresses these showers and isolated thunderstorms will be
moving east into the metro area and exiting out of the northeast
near Columbus by mid-morning. The POPs were cleaned up to reflect
the timing of system moving through, otherwise no major changes
were made with this forecast update/12/
