AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

.DISCUSSION...(This afternoon through Saturday)
Issued at 1014 AM CDT Sun Oct 25 2020

Updated to bump down temperatures a degree or two for late
morning and heading into the afternoon/evening as cold air
advection is quite strong. This will effectively keep all precip
frozen across the CWA (snow/freezing drizzle), except for the far
southeast reaches of the CWA for parts of southeastern Mitchell
County in Kansas this afternoon. Besides this minor shift,
forecast is on track.
