Southeast Discussion

.SYNOPSIS...WEAK COLD FRONT IS EAST OF TALLAHASSEE. HARD TO FIND IT IN THE WIND FIELD. HOWEVER...LOOKING AT THE 70F ISODROSOTHERM...IT RUNS FROM THE COASTAL SECTIONS OF NORTH CAROLINA SOUTHWEST THROUGH SOUTHEAST GEORGIA EAST OF VLD...THROUGH TLH AND THEN JUST NORTH OF AAF. I BELIEVE THE FRONT SHOULD BE SITUATED ALONG THE 70F DEWPOINT. THE 60F ISODROSOTHERM CUTS ACROSS CENTRAL GEORGIA DOWN ACROSS EXTREME SOUTHEAST ALABAMA. NOT MUCH PUSH BEHIND THIS FRONT. SURFACE WINDS ARE MOSTLY VARIABLE IN THE CWA. TEMPERATURES VARY FROM 70 AT DHN TO THE MID 80S AT CTY IN THE EXTREME SOUTHEAST BIG BEND. BESIDES THE FRONT...SURFACE FEATURES INCLUDE HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE WITH RIDGING EXTENDING DOWN INTO NORTHWEST FLORIDA. ADDITIONAL EAST-WEST RIDGING EXTENDS WESTWARD INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA FROM THE ATLANTIC. BIG WEATHER MAKER IS MAKING LIFE IN COLORADO SOMEWHAT ROUGH AND SNOWY TODAY. A 992MB LOW HAS DEVELOPED IN NORTHEAST NEW MEXICO WITH HEAVY SNOW OCCURRING ACROSS THE COLORADO FRONT RANGE. ALOFT...DEEP TROUGH IN THE FAR WEST AND RIDGING BUILDING IN THE EAST AS AN UPPER LOW MOVES OFF THE NEW ENGLAND COAST ARE THE KEY FEATURES. LAYERED MIDDLE AND HIGH CLOUDS COVER MUCH OF THE DEEP SOUTH ALL THE WAY NORTHWARD TO OFF THE COAST OF NEW ENGLAND. A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE IS SITUATED OF THE FLORIDA EAST COAST.
