.UPDATE...
Evening Update.

.DISCUSSION...

One last batch of showers/storms moving across the northern tip of
Cherokee County. After that moves out to the northwest, within the
next hour, we should -- should -- be rain free for the rest of
the night. No major changes are expected to the ongoing forecast,
aside from the end of the precipitation.

.AVIATION...
00Z TAF Discussion.

Cumulus clouds scattered about central Alabama will dissipate
with the setting sun, with fair weather through tonight
characterizing VFR flight conditions. Surface winds will range
from calm to very light.

On Saturday, cumulus clouds will develop and grow in coverage into
the afternoon hours. Some will tower and mature into isolated
showers and thunderstorms afternoon to early-evening, mainly
across far northern Alabama; thus, many airports will continue
with VFR conditions through the day. Chances for precipitation are
low enough to preclude mention in the TAFs at this time, though an
early `best approximation` suggests possible proximity activity
for BHM-ASN-ANB. ~Easterly surface winds will increase to around
7-knots.

.FIRE WEATHER...

only low rain chances at times. Temps will remain near or slightly
above normal thru early next week. Critical fire weather
conditions are not expected.
