AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BIRMINGHAM AL
1141 PM CST SUN NOV 23 2014

.UPDATE...
FOR 06Z AVIATION.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

GUSTY SOUTHERLY WINDS CONTINUE ACROSS MUCH OF CENTRAL ALABAMA IN THE WAKE
OF THE DEEPENING SURFACE LOW THAT WILL QUICKLY MOVE INTO THE GREAT
LAKES STATES BY MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. MEANWHILE...SOUTHERLY SURFACE
FLOW WILL KEEP MOISTURE LEVELS RELATIVELY HIGH AND INCREASE CLOUD
COVER OVERNIGHT. THE CLOUDS WILL BASICALLY CAUSE TEMPERATURES TO
BE STEADY IN THE UPPER 50S AND LOWER 60S...AND HAVE RAISED
OVERNIGHT LOWS AREAWIDE. DUE TO THE LOW STRATUS DEVELOPMENT...HAVE
KEPT PATCHY FOG IN THE FORECAST DUE TO THE LOW CLOUDS CAUSING
OCCASIONAL VISIBILITY RESTRICTIONS. THE CLOUDS SHOULD EVENTUALLY
MIX OUT MONDAY MORNING AS THE COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE WEST.
UPDATES ARE ALREADY OUT.

56/GDG

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF DISCUSSION.

LOW CLOUDS ARE BACK IN THE AREA WITH SOME ISENTROPIC LIFT IN PLACE
FROM THE SOUTH AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT. WINDS WILL REMAIN BRISK FOR THE
NIGHT SO NOT EXPECTING ANY WIDE-SPREAD IFR VIS ISSUES. MODELS HAVE
REALLY HIT HARD AT NOW IFR CIGS DEVELOPING AHEAD OF THE FRONT
OVERNIGHT AND WITH THE EXPECTATION OF THE FRONT NOT MAKING IT INTO
CENTRAL ALABAMA UNTIL 12Z...THAT SEEMS SENSIBLE. SO ADDED IN IFR
FOR ALL SITES EXCEPT TCL AND MGM. THERE MAY BE A BRIEF WINDOW IN
WHICH MGM DROPS BUT NOT LONG. SLOW CLEARING OF THE MVFR CIGS
AHEAD OF THE FRONT WITH EVENTUAL VFR CIGS BY AFTER 18Z AS THE
FRONT CLEARS CENTRAL ALABAMA.
