REGION TODAY. ALSO...SATELLITE LOOP SHOWING HIGH AND MID CLOUDS
STREAMING INTO THE REGION FROM THE GREAT LAKES AT THIS TIME. GIVEN
CLOUD COVER TODAY HAVE GONE BELOW MOS GUIDANCE FOR MAX
TEMPERATURES TODAY. HAVE USED THE LOWER TEMPERATURES THAT THE GFS
LAMP GUIDANCE HAS FOR TODAY FOR MAX TEMPERATURES. MOST OF THE
PRECIPITATION FROM THE LOW MOVING EAST FROM THE GREAT LAKES WILL
HOLD OFF UNTIL TONIGHT...BUT HAVE BROUGHT SLIGHT TO LOW CHANCE

LOCATIONS TONIGHT...WITH SLEET BE THE MAIN PRECIPITATION TYPE.
HAVE OPTED TO HOLD OFF ON ANY WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES AT THIS
TIME...AS NEIGHBORING OFFICES ALSO DOING THE SAME...AS NOT MUCH IN
THE WAY OF FREEZING RAIN IS INDICATED TONIGHT. HOWEVER...ANY
FREEZING RAIN OR ICE ACCUMULATION TONIGHT AND EARLY WEDNESDAY
MORNING WILL ONLY PUT MORE STRESS ON TREE LIMBS AND POWER
LINES...AND COULD LEAD TO POWER OUTAGES. EXPECTING MAINLY A CHANCE OF

SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN BUILD EASTWARD INTO THE AREA AND
DRY WEATHER WILL RETURN THROUGH EARLY SUNDAY. THOUGH GFS AND ECMWF
SHOW DIFFERENCES FROM THIS POINT ONWARD...BOTH DO SHOW REGION
BEING AFFECTED BY LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVING INTO THE AREA FROM
THE SOUTHWEST. HAVE GONE SLIGHTLY ABOVE SUPERBLEND POPS FOR SUNDAY

COUNTRY FROM THE SOUTHWEST LATER IN THE DAY. TIMING AROUND 20-00Z

CONDITIONS ARE INITIALLY UNSATURATED ALOFT. WINDS BECOME
SOUTHEASTERLY (EXCEPT NORTHEAST AT MSS) UNDER 10 KTS. HAVE GONE
AHEAD WITH PREVAILING LIGHT FZRA AND SLEET AT ALL SITES BY ABOUT
04Z, THEN SWITCHING TO RASN SOMETIME BEFORE 12Z.
