.DISCUSSION...
Only a few minor tweaks to the forecast for this evening update.
Still expecting cold temperatures tonight, and winds should
continue to die off. But there will still be a minor overlap of
the two leading to very cold wind chills, specifically in the
higher terrain of the Southern Appalachian Mountains where a wind
chill advisory is in effect tonight.
