.DISCUSSION...
Cold front has now cleared our extreme southeast zones but not
before isolated showers and thunderstorms developed along the
boundary from Monroe south and west to near Alexandria earlier.
Cloud cover has cleared the region as well along with the front
and we should keep clear skies for the remainder of the night.

Strong pressure gradient remains in place in the wake of the front
and while one would say that sufficient mixing in place overnight
could help to hold temperatures up slightly...strong cold air
advection filtering into the region should allow our region to see
advertised minimums overnight.

For this reason...no update is necessary to the forecast tonight.
