(TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY) ISSUED AT 256 AM EST MON NOV 24 2014 WRAPPED UP AREA OF LOW PRESSURE HAS NOW PUSHED OFF TO THE NORTH INTO THE GREAT LAKES. A TRAILING COLD FRONT EXTENDS SOUTH ACROSS ILLINOIS INTO ARKANSAS. PRESSURE GRADIENT REMAINS VERY STRONG ACROSS THE AREA THIS MORNING ALLOWING FOR GUSTY WINDS. AS THE FRONT TO THE WEST CROSSES THE AREA TODAY...THESE WINDS SHOULD ONLY INCREASE AND THUS...THE WIND ADVISORY WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT. OUTSIDE OF ADJUSTING THE GUSTS UP SLIGHTLY...MADE VERY FEW CHANGES TO THE WINDS. A WEAK WAVE WILL CROSS NEAR OR JUST NORTH OF THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY AS THE FRONT PUSHES EAST TODAY. HOWEVER...BETTER MOISTURE AND FORCING WITH THIS FEATURE WILL REMAIN JUST TO OUR NORTH. WITH A GLANCING BLOW...AND BASED ON MODEL SOUNDINGS SHOWING ONLY SHALLOW MOISTURE...CANNOT IMAGINE WE WILL SEE ANYTHING MORE THAN A FEW SPRINKLES. THUS...HAVE BACKED OFF POPS TODAY. AFTER A MILD START...TEMPERATURES WILL FALL THROUGH THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON HOURS AS THE FRONT CROSSES THE AREA. WHILE SOME MOISTURE WILL LEAD TO SOME CLOUD COVER BEHIND THE FRONT...IT APPEARS BETTER MOISTURE WILL STAY JUST OFF TO OUR NORTHWEST TONIGHT. THIS SHOULD ALLOW FOR PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES DEVELOPING TONIGHT. FLOW NEVER BECOMES NORTHWEST ENOUGH TO SUPPORT MOISTURE HANGING ON INTO THE HIGHER TERRAIN...SO IT LOOKS LIKE LESS CLOUD COVER IS THE WAY TO GO. WITH SURFACE RIDGING BUILDING INTO THE AREA...THE CLEAR SKIES COULD ALLOW FOR WINDS TO GO FAIRLY LIGHT IN THE SHELTERED VALLEYS...ALLOW FOR LOWS IN THE LOWER 30S. RIDGING WILL HOLD THROUGH TUESDAY...PROVIDING MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES...BUT A COOLER DAY WITH HIGHS INTO THE 40S. .LONG TERM...(TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY) ISSUED AT 256 AM EST MON NOV 24 2014 LONG TERM DISCUSSION TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.
