.DISCUSSION...
WILL GO AHEAD AND CANCEL THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY WITH THIS
FORECAST. IT APPEARS THAT THERE WAS TOO MUCH OF A WARM NOSE
ACCORDING TO LAST NIGHT/S AMA SOUNDING TO GET MUCH FROZEN
PRECIPITATION. THIS WARM NOSE WILL ONLY GET DEEPER AND WARMER
TODAY...SO HAVE SWITCHED ALL OF THE PRECIPITATION OVER TO
LIQUID. SOME SNOW MAY TRY TO MIX WITH THE RAIN ACROSS MUCH OF THE
AREA EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...BUT WE ARE NOT EXPECTING ANY
ACCUMULATION AS THE PRECIPITATION SHOULD BE COMING TO AN END BY
THEN.

A NORTHERN STREAM SHORT WAVE TROUGH WILL PASS BY TO OUR NORTH
SENDING A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE AREA EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...SO
EXPECT GUSTY NORTHERLY WINDS FOR MUCH OF SUNDAY. A NORTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT WILL BRING ANOTHER COLD FRONT THROUGH THE REGION ON
WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK...BUT NO PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED WITH
THIS FRONTAL PASSAGE. TEMPERATURES WILL GET BACK UP ABOVE
NORMAL BY TUESDAY BEFORE GETTING KNOCKED DOWN AGAIN FOR
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL THEN REBOUND AGAIN BY
NEXT WEEK FRIDAY AS UPPER HEIGHTS RISE A LITTLE AS THE UPPER
RIDGE TO OUR WEST TRIES TO NUDGE IT/S WAY EAST.
