AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
928 AM CDT WED OCT 29 2014

.UPDATE...
MORNING UPDATE.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
CONDITIONS RANGE FROM CLOUDY/OVERCAST IN OUR EASTERN ZONES TO SUNNY
SKIES IN NORTHWESTERN ALABAMA THIS MORNING, THANKS TO A COLD FRONT
PASSING THROUGH THE REGION AS OF THIS WRITING. THIS FRONT EXTENDED
FROM THE CAROLINAS SWWRD THROUGH NRN AL, AND DOWNWARD TO JUST SOUTH
OF THE ARKLAMISS. A BIT OF POST-FRONTAL LIGHT RAIN/DRIZZLE IS JUST
NOW BEGINNING TO EXIT THE EASTERN COUNTIES, WITH THE BACK EDGE OF THE
CLOUD COVER DISSECTING THE CWFA FROM SW TO NE ALONG A LINE FROM
FAYETTEVILLE TO ATHENS TO MOULTON AND RUSSELLVILLE.

THE TREND FOR TODAY WILL BE CLEARING SKIES, BUT THE BIG QUESTION IS
JUST HOW WARM HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL GET LATER TODAY. LOOKING
UPSTREAM, OBSERVATIONS HAVE REBOUNDED FROM THE UPPER 40S INTO THE
LOWER 50S OVER THE PAST HOUR OR TWO IN W TN/ERN AR, BUT WITH COOLER
AIR UPSTREAM, AM NOT EXPECTING TEMPS TO REACH CURRENTLY FORECASTED
HIGHS OF UPPER 60S TO AROUND 70 DEGREES. AS SUCH, HAVE OPTED TO
DECREASE AFTN HIGHS DOWN A COUPLE OF DEGREES, WITH NW AL TOPPING OUT
CLOSER TO 65F AND NE AL IN THE LOWER 60S (DUE TO REDUCED INSOLATION
IN THOSE LOCATIONS).

OTHERWISE, ASIDE FROM A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS TO SKY COVER TO MATCH
UP WITH OBSERVATIONAL TRENDS, THE ONLY CHANGE THIS MORNING WAS TO ADD
SPRINKLES IN THROUGH MIDDAY FOR THE EASTERN ZONES AS THE CLOUDS CLEAR
OUT. NO ADDITIONAL CHANGES WERE WARRANTED WITH THIS UPDATE.

UPDATED PRODUCTS WILL BE SENT SHORTLY.

/ISSUED 609 AM CDT WED OCT 29 2014/
FOR 12Z TAFS...A CDFNT HAS MOVED PAST THE TAF SITES AND THE LIGHT
RAIN ASSOCIATED WITH THE CDFNT WILL CONTINUE TO TAPER OFF THIS MRNG.
A MUCH COOLER AND DRIER AIRMASS WILL PUSH ACROSS THE TN VALLEY TODAY

OCCASIONAL IFR CONDITIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE UNTIL ARND 14Z. AFTER 14Z
EXPECT MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FCST PERIOD.
