.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1113 AM CST Thu Jan 18 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Another frigid start this morning with widespread teens for lows,
but we`re seeing a much faster recovery in temperatures compared
to yesterday with very little snowpack left to slow temperatures
from climbing. Therefore, the Hard Freeze Warning expired at 9 AM
as readings continue to climb into the lower 30s already at 17Z.
We should add another 10 degrees on average to these temperatures
to end up in the lower to mid 40s for afternoon highs. Most areas
will continue to see full sunshine this afternoon, but broad area
of stratocu clouds will begin moving into deep east Texas after
the noon hour so expect partly to mostly cloudy skies to prevail
in our SW sections later today. So for this update, have adjusted
sky cover to account for these clouds and temperatures accordingly
as southerly winds begin to increase this afternoon. Otherwise, no
other changes are needed to the forecast at this time. All updated
text products have been issued.
