.DISCUSSION...
Another cold night is in store with temperatures dropping to near
10 degrees in the north and the lower 20s in the south with the
coldest temperatures of the season thus far expected in many
areas. The upper pattern will remain nearly zonal through the
central U.S. over the next week with various shortwaves moving
over the area. One approaching wave will bring low chances of
precipitation to the southeast late Saturday/Sunday, but moisture
return looks meager. A more significant trough will move through
the Canadian prairies and northern plains early/mid week next week
and help to nudge a cold airmass south into the plains. The medium
range models continue to differ from model to model and from run
to run how much of this cold air will push into the forecast area
next week. Unlike yesterday, today it is the GFS that is more
aggressive with the cold air and the ECMWF keeps things warmer. So
there is not a lot of confidence in the forecast approaching days
6 and 7.
