&& .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
For the overnight, have removed all pops and made some minor adjustments to cloud cover. Temperatures have been updated with a blend of hires guidance. Very little changes needed for the forecast today. Have continued the idea of leaving pops near the Mason-Dixon line, as surface boundary will remained stalled over Northern West Virginia, and a weak shortwave will ride along the front this afternoon. Have kept higher cloud cover over the south as well. Temperatures again will be above normal.
