NO MAJOR CHANGES WERE NEEDED FOR THE EARLY EVE UPDATE AS REMAINING SHOWERS WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH AS TEMPS FALL BELOW CONVECTIVE THRESHOLDS AND SUBSIDENCE INCREASES. COLD FLOW OFF THE SURFACE SHOULD SUPPORT CONTINUED STRATOCUMULUS FORMATION...ESPCIALLY OVER THE NORTHERN ZONES TONIGHT. ELSEWHERE...ANY FULL CLEARING WILL BE TEMPORARY AS UPPER AND MID LEVEL MOISTURE IS ALREADY STREAMING ACROSS THE WESTERN OHIO BORDER AHEAD OF A SHORTWAVE DIGGING TOWARD THE BASE OF THE UPPER TROUGH ENTRENCHED OVER THE EASERN CONUS. WARM ADVECTION IS ADVANCE OF THAT DISTURBANCE WILL SUPPORT A MONDAY WARM UP TO WITHIN A FEW DEGREES OF THE AVERAGES...BUT RAIN CHANCES WILL ALSO INCREASE AS EVENING APPROACHES.
