Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED

.UPDATE...
For 18Z Aviation.

.DISCUSSION...

Main changes to today`s forecast are to raise high temperatures a
couple of degrees. Satellite is showing some scattered cumulus
development across Central Alabama. Even beginning to see a few
tiny showers on radar. Latest data continues to suggest only
isolated activity today with no decent focus, and anything that
does pop up should be short lived. However, we are warming nicely
and that could help a few heat induced pop ups.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAF Discussion.

VFR tafs are expected for the most part with some fair weather
cumulus clouds building this afternoon SCT-BKN from around
4500-6000 FT. There is a very low chance that with daytime heating
we come have some small short lived showers but chances are too
low to mention in tafs. Toward morning, did tempo in some 4SM BR
at ASN/ANB/TOI but didn`t go any further across Central Alabama
and low level moisture will be limited.

.FIRE WEATHER...

Look for only low to minimal rain chances for the remainder of the
weekend into the first half of this week. Temperatures are
expected to remain above normal through much of the week. There
are no fire weather concerns at this time.

.PREV DISCUSSION...
/Issued 220 AM CDT SUN MAY 29 2016/

No real changes are expected with this forecast package, as the
flow tries to turn a bit more northwest today bringing some
limited drier air to the state. The extent of the drying further
east will be in question due to the tropical system along the East
Coast, so any remnant moisture convergence should be across the
eastern sections of the CWA. Left a slight chance of a
thunderstorm or two east of I65, however, coverage is expected to
be minimal.

As the week continues, showers and thunderstorms will be mainly
driven with the typical summer afternoon diurnal pattern,
although with the upper level ridging building back overhead,
coverage will remain only isolated to scattered. Later in the
work week, that pattern looks to relax as a remnant cold front
tries to move in from the northwest, which would increase rain
chances starting on Thursday or Friday. This appears to be the
next possibility to a more widespread rain event for much of the
south.
