931 AM CDT WED APR 27 2016

.UPDATE...
CONTINUE TO TRY TO UPDATE THE FORECAST TO ACCOUNT FROM CURRENT
CONDITIONS THIS MORNING IN THE WAKE OF EXTENSIVE MCS/SQUALL LINE.
HAVE DROPPED POPS CONSIDERABLY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...ALTHOUGH
COULD STILL SEE A FEW/SCATTERED SHOWERS DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON.
ALL IN ALL...SHOULD SEE CLEARING SKIES UNTIL CONVECTIVE CUMULUS
FORMS WITH HEATING. TEMPS WILL BE PROBLEMATIC AS RAIN COOLED
AIRMASS IS WELL ENTRENCHED. DIURNAL HEATING SHOULD BE FAIRLY
STRONG TODAY SO HAVE LEFT MAX TEMPS ALONE FOR THE MOST PART WITH
TEMPS REBOUNDING WELL INTO THE 80S FOR MOST AREAS AWAY FROM THE
COAST.
