.DISCUSSION...
Nice winter day across the region with temperatures in the low to
mid 60s with strong sun. Temperatures will cool rapidly overnight
with good radiational conditions setting up.

Gradual warming trend expected through Thursday when the next cold
front is expected to move through the area. There may be a few
showers in the coastal waters and in extreme SC Louisiana
Thursday/Thursday night.

Deep trough still expected to gradually move east this weekend
into early next week. This will allow good moisture return to the
region along with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms.
There are still model differences on the start time
Saturday/Saturday night and especially on the ending sometime
early next week. May eventually need to add some POPs to the
daytime forecast Saturday, but choose to wait til model confidence
increases a bit. Front still looks to move through on
Sunday/Sunday night.
