Area Forecast Discussion
760 FXUS64 KHUN 311602 AAB AFDHUN Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Huntsville AL 1102 AM CDT TUE MAY 31 2016 .UPDATE... Morning update. && .DISCUSSION... Current radar trends show that the showers and thunderstorms in NE MS continue to slowly move NNE and are weakening as they get closer to the AL border. Temps have climbed up into the 80s but dewpoints have fluctuated over the past few hours around 60 degrees. The higher pool of PWATS (1.5 inches) is currently to our west as we are still slightly drier. The outflow boundary from the batch of convection in MS is currently moving into NW AL and could be a lifting mechanism for a few showers or storms. The combination of the outflow boundary, weak shortwave and isentropic lift will allow for development of isolated showers and thunderstorms though this afternoon. Therefore, have updated the POP/wx grids to reflect this thinking. With the additional cloud cover, high temps will be near or just below yesterday`s highs...so look for temps around 90 degrees. JMS && .AVIATION... (Issued 652 AM CDT TUE MAY 31 2016) For 12Z TAFs: VFR conditions are expected to continue across N AL/S Middle TN for the next 24 hours. Isolated -TSRA are possible over NW AL, but have not included in KMSL TAF due to uncertainty with storms over N MS and further development later this afternoon.
