UPDATE
 
 
ISSUED AT 153 PM CDT FRI APR 16 2021  
 
SNOW HAD ENDED ACROSS THE AREA, SO THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY WAS  
ALLOWED TO EXPIRE.  
 

 
   
DISCUSSION
 
(TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY)  
ISSUED AT 407 AM CDT FRI APR 16 2021  
 
RAIN AND SNOW CONTINUES TO SPREAD ACROSS THE AREA EARLY THIS  
MORNING. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO FALL AND MOST OF THE AREA  
WILL HAVE AT LEAST A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW.  
 
AN UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL MOVE INTO THE FORECAST AREA DURING THE DAY  
TODAY. THE PRECIPITATION WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE FORECAST  
AREA THROUGH THE DAY. THE WEST WILL HAVE SNOW, WHERE TEMPERATURES  
ARE COOLER. WHERE TEMPERATURES REMAIN A LITTLE WARMER, THERE WILL BE  
A MIX. TEMPERATURES DURING THE DAY WILL WARM ENOUGH THAT BY MID DAY,  
THE SNOW WILL CHANGE BACK TO RAIN. WILL LEAVE THE ADVISORY AS IS AT  
THIS TIME.  
 
TONIGHT, TEMPERATURES WILL FALL OFF AGAIN AND THERE WILL BE A MIX OF  
RAIN AND SNOW POSSIBLE, BUT THIS WILL BE MAINLY IN THE NORTHEASTERN  
PART OF THE FORECAST AREA AS THE UPPER LOW MOVES OFF TO THE EAST. BY  
SATURDAY MORNING, THE LOW HAS MOVED FAR ENOUGH EAST THAT THE  
PRECIPITATION WILL BE OUT OF THE AREA. THE ONLY CAVEAT IS SOME OF  
THE MODELS ARE STARTING TO SHOW A WAVE THAT SLIDES INTO THE AREA AND  
THERE COULD BE SOME LIGHT PRECIPITATION. WILL KEEP THE FORECAST DRY,  
BUT WILL NEED TO WATCH TO SEE IF THE MODELS CONTINUE TO BRING IN  
SOME PRECIPITATION. ONCE THIS WAVE MOVES THROUGH THE AREA SATURDAY  
NIGHT, THE SKIES CLEAR OUT AND TEMPERATURES WARM UP A LITTLE.  
 
A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA SUNDAY NIGHT. THERE IS ALSO  
AN UPPER LEVEL WAVE THAT MOVES THROUGH. THIS WILL BRING ANOTHER  
CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION TO THE AREA. AS TEMPERATURES FALL SUNDAY  
NIGHT AND MONDAY MORNING, THERE WILL BE A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW OR  
EVEN TO SNOW. AN UPPER LOW IN THE GREAT LAKES AREA CONTINUES TO SEND  
WAVES THROUGH THE AREA AND THERE WILL BE SOME RAIN OR SNOW,  
DEPENDING ON THE TEMPERATURE. TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY  
SHOULD BE DRY AHEAD OF ANOTHER WAVE THAT MOVES THROUGH THE AREA LATE  
WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.
