.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 918 PM CDT TUE SEP 1 2015/
A SIMILAR FORECAST TO LAST NIGHT...WITH BROAD SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE
SITUATED ACROSS THE OHIO VALLEY CONTROLLING THE WEATHER. CONVECTION
IN PROGRESS EAST OF AN UPPER LOW...EAST OF THE SOUTH-CENTRAL TEXAS
COAST...WAS SENDING A STREAM OF HIGHER ALTITUDE MOISTURE AND CLOUDS
ACROSS THE MID-SOUTH AND CENTRAL TENNESSEE VALLEY. MOISTURE FROM THE
REMNANTS OF TC ERIKA REMAINED FURTHER TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF THE
FORECAST AREA. MID EVENING TEMPERATURE HAVE COOLED INTO THE 70S (NEAR
70 IN RURAL AREAS TO UPPER 70S IN HUNTSVILLE AT UAH).

WITH MORE STABLE CONDITIONS...DRY WEATHER SHOULD CONTINUE FOR THE
OVERNIGHT. DESPITE MORE HIGH ALTITUDE CLOUDS...PLENTY OF LOWER LEVEL
MOISTURE AND LIGHT WINDS WILL BE CONDUCIVE FOR FOG DEVELOPMENT
BEFORE DAYBREAK WEDNESDAY. STAYED WITH THE PATCHY FOG WE ALREADY HAVE
NOTED IN THE MAJOR VALLEYS AND NEAR BODIES OF WATER...BUT ADDED A FEW
MORE SPOTS SUCH AS MERIDIANVILLE AND OTHER RURAL LOCATIONS AROUND THE
REGION. NOT CERTAIN ON HOW MUCH MORE WIDESPREAD OR DENSE THE FOG WILL
BECOME...SO STAYED WITH PATCHY FOG WORDING THIS UPDATE.

.AVIATION...
FOR 06Z TAFS...
DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF SCT/BKN HIGH ALTITUDE CLOUDS...PATCHY FOG IS
POSSIBLE OVER/NEAR THE TERMINALS DURING THE OVERNIGHT. WITH LIGHT
WINDS AND RESIDUAL MOISTURE PRESENT...VFR CONDITIONS SHOULD BECOME
MVFR AFTER 07Z...MAINLY DUE TO THE FORMATION OF FOG/MIST. VIS
REDUCTIONS TO IFR...POSSIBLY LOWER CANNOT BE RULED OUT ESPECIALLY AT
KMSL BEFORE DAYBREAK WED. CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE AFTER 14Z...AS
DAYTIME HEATING AND MIXING HELP DISSIPATE VIS RESTRICTIONS. VFR
WEATHER IS OTHERWISE EXPECTED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE TAF...WITH
LIGHT NE WINDS.
