AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BIRMINGHAM AL

.DISCUSSION...

NO CHANGES MADE TO THE ONGOING FORECAST. THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF A
BROAD SURFACE RIDGE WILL BRING IN A DRIER AIRMASS THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAYS. OTHER THAN A FEW PATCHES OF CLOUDS...NOT SEEING MUCH IN THE
WAY OF SIGNIFICANT MOISTURE. THERE WILL BE A EASTERLY BACKDOOR
FRONT THAT MOVES INTO THE CWA ON FRIDAY AND MIGHT PRODUCE A FEW
SPRINKLES CLOSER TO THE GEORGIA LINE. THERE IS ALSO ANOTHER FRONT
THAT WILL APPROACH MONDAY AHEAD OF A BROADER EASTERN CONUS
TROUGH...BUT THE MOISTURE REALLY DRIES UP AS THE FRONT REACHES
THE DEEP SOUTH...SO VERY LIMITED POPS THEN.

TEMPERATURES LOOK VERY SEASONAL WITH HIGHS MAINLY IN THE 80S AND
LOWS FROM THE MID 50S TO MID 60S.

88

.AVIATION...
FRONTAL BOUNDARY CURRENTLY BISECTING THE STATE FROM WEST TO EAST
WILL SINK VERY SLOWLY TO THE SOUTH THROUGH THE PERIOD. MID TO LOW
LEVEL MOISTURE REMAINS PREVALENT AND ALTHOUGH SKIES MAY CLEAR
BRIEFLY....CLOUDS SHOULD FILL BACK IN. FRONT WILL BE THE FOCUS FOR
SCATTERED AFTERNOON CONVECTION WITH DRIER AIR FINALLY RETURNING
LATE IN THE PERIOD. WIDESPREAD VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED EXCEPT
EARLY IN THE PERIOD AT KANB AND FOR ALL TERMINALS AROUND SUNRISE
WHEN BRIEF MVFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL. LIGHT NORTH TO NORTHEAST
FLOW IS EXPECTED.
