VENTILATION TO BE GENERALLY GOOD TO EXCELLENT WEST...BUT LOWER
OUT EAST DUE TO LOW MIXING HEIGHTS DESPITE THE WIND POTENTIAL.

EXPAND EASTWARD ACROSS THE NORTH THIRD AND TO LESSER DEGREE THE
CENTRAL THIRD TONIGHT. EXPECT A FEW TO SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW

BETTER SOUTHEAST. LIGHTER WINDS AND GENERALLY WORSE VENTILATION
