.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 223 PM CST THU JAN 22 2015/

DISCUSSION...
DECREASING CLOUDS AND A SNOWPACK LEFT OVER WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES
TO TUMBLE TONIGHT. BASICALLY WENT ON THE SIDE OF THE COOLER
GUIDANCE. THE SNOWPACK SHOULD AFFECT TEMPERATURES OVER THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS AT LEAST SO HAVE ADJUSTED READINGS ACCORDINGLY. THE
LEAST AMOUNT OF SNOW FELL ACROSS THE NORTHEAST AND THEN THE FAR
SOUTHEAST...SO THESE AREAS SHOULD POP BACK UP IN THE 60S BY SUNDAY.

A NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL KEEP THE PANHANDLES ON THE DRY SIDE
THROUGH THIS FORECAST. IN FACT AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS OVER THE
REGION BY NEXT TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY. BY THIS TIME...THE SNOW
SHOULD BE ABOUT GONE...SO EVEN PLACES THAT GOT A FOOT OF SNOW WILL BE
ABLE TO BENEFIT FROM THE UPPER RIDGE ALOFT THAT WILL WARM OUR
TEMPERATURES ABOVE NORMAL.

.AMA WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...

OK...NONE.
