AT THE SURFACE...A COLD FRONT STRETCHES ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN
SECTIONS OF THE AREA AND IS LOCATED JUST TO THE SOUTH OF I-85
CORRIDOR. AT 10 AM...THE DEWPOINT IS 66 DEGREES AT THE TROY
AIRPORT WITH A DEWPOINT OF ONLY 54 AT AUBURN/OPELIKA AIRPORT. MUCH
LOWER DEWPOINTS WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA TONIGHT.

A CURRENT LOOK AT THE RADAR SHOWS SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWER
AND STORMS ALONG THIS FRONTAL BOUNDARY. MOST OF THE RAIN SHOULD BE
EXITING BY 2 TO 3 PM THIS AFTERNOON. FURTHER TO THE NORTH...DRY
AIR WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA MAKING FOR AN EXCELLENT DAY WEATHER
WISE WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE NORTH ONLY TOPPING OUT IN
THE UPPER 70S/NEAR 80. TEMPERATURES IN THE SOUTHEAST WILL RANGE
QUITE A BIT DEPENDING ON WHEN THE RAIN MAKES IT INTO A SITE. MGM
AT 10 AM WAS 69 DEGREES SO LIKELIHOOD OF STILL GETTING TO THE MID
80S THIS AFTERNOON IS SLIM. HOWEVER TROY AND EUFAULA WERE STILL IN
THE UPPER 70S AND LOW 80S ARE STILL POSSIBLE BY NOON OR 1 PM.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLOW TO RISE AGAIN IN THE SOUTHEAST WHERE
CLOUD COVER WILL CONTINUE....SO DROPPED TEMPERATURES QUITE A BIT
