.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1033 AM CST Sat Feb 25 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Temps across the region range from low 40s over our nrn sections
to low 50s across our srn areas, and nly winds 5-10 kts continue
the ongoing CAA. Wind speeds are expected to diminish as we move
into the afternoon, which, when combined with abundant sunshine,
will allow for us to warm into the upper 50s at most sites.
Current fcst package seems to be reasonably on track, so will not
be making any changes attm. /12/
