.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1042 AM CST Wed Jan 17 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Temperatures continue to slowly climb out of the teens late this
morning with all areas reaching into the lower 20s here in the
next hour or so. Of course with snowpack still on ground, rise in
temperatures will be slowed and thus only expecting highs by this
afternoon to make it near the freezing mark in the lower to mid
30s. For this morning`s update, have issued new products to drop
the previous Hard Freeze Warning and Wind Chill Advisory wording
with those expiring at 10 AM this morning. As temperatures crater
once again tonight after sunset, we`ll see hard freeze conditions
return with the warning back in effect once again at 9 PM tonight
through 9 AM Thursday. So other than cleaning up the wording with
these hazard products, no changes are needed to the forecast. All
text products have been updated and reissued.
