.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 339 AM CST MON FEB 8 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Will start the day with an upper ridge over the western half of the
country with a large trough centered over the Great Lakes.  The
ridge will slowly slide east as the trough moves toward the
Atlantic.  This will result in mild wx for the region into next
week.

After another unseasonably warm day yesterday looking for a
noticeably cooler day today in post frontal conditions.  highs today
should be in the 50s as a north wind and cold air advection
continues through the day.  Wind should become westerly/downslope
Tuesday as temps quickly recover into the 60s.  Warming temps
continue through the week as highs in the 70s return Wednesday and
hang around through next weekend.

Should have lots of high clouds today but forecast will remain dry.
Gusty NE wind at GDP should decrease throughout the day.
