SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED NORTHEAST OF THE AREA HAS PROVIDED
AN ABNORMALLY DRY AND COOLER AIR MASS TO CENTRAL ALABAMA.

TEMPERATURES HAVE DROPPED QUICKLY AFTER SUNSET IN MANY LOCATIONS.
MADE SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO THE TEMPERATURE TRENDS. SOME HIGH CLOUDS
AND POSSIBLE A FEW LOWER CLOUDS WILL DRIFT IN FROM THE WEST...BUT
WITH THE ATMOSPHERE SO DRY...THESE CLOUDS WILL NOT ADD UP TO MUCH.
WENT AHEAD AND LOWERED OVERNIGHT LOWS IN A FEW SPOTS. FOG SHOULD
NOT BE A PROBLEM OVERNIGHT.
