.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 447 AM CST THU FEB 11 2016/

DISCUSSION...
A FEW AREAS REPORTING SOME LIGHT FOG ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS AND
SOUTHERN LOUISIANA THIS MORNING. OTHERWISE... SOUTHERLY FLOW HAS
PUSHED DEW POINTS UP INTO THE UPPER 50S ALONG THE COAST... TO
NEAR 50 ALONG THE I-10 CORRIDOR... TO MID 40S AROUND THE LAKES IN
SOUTHEAST TEXAS AND CENTRAL LOUISIANA.

AROUND THE COUNTY... MINNESOTA IS LIVING UP TO ITS NAME AS ONE
OF THE COLDER LOCATIONS WITH -15 TO -24 BELOW ZERO ALONG THE
CANADIAN BORDER.

BACK AT HOME... HIGH PRESSURE HAS SETTLED IN THE GULF AND THIS
IS THE REASON FOR THE SOUTHERLY WINDS AND THE HIGHER DEW POINTS.
THIS TREND WILL CONTINUE INTO TOMORROW AHEAD OF THE NEXT SYSTEM
THAT WILL MOVE THROUGH LATE IN THE DAY. THIS NEXT SYSTEM WILL ALSO
BE DRY AND JUST REINFORCE THE DRY WEATHER PATTERN INTO THE
WEEKEND. ON MONDAY... ANOTHER STILL STRONGER FRONT LOOKS TO MOVE
THROUGH DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. THIS FRONT WILL BRING
SHOWERS AND A FEW ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. NOT LOOKING FOR VERY
HEAVY RAINFALL AND TOTALS WILL BE LESS THAN AN INCH... AS THIS
FRONTAL PASSAGE WILL BE RATHER QUICK.

FOR TODAY THOUGH... LOOKING FOR TEMPERATURES INTO THE MID 70S
MOST LOCATIONS ON SOUTH WINDS AND MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES. TOMORROW
NIGHT WILL BE A REPEAT OF TONIGHT ALTHOUGH A BIT WARMER AND A BIT
MORE FOG.

SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY WILL BE MOSTLY CLEAR WITH MILD TEMPERATURES...
GREAT FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES.
