NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
235 PM CDT SAT MAY 23 2015

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE CURRENTLY IN CONTROL OF THE WEATHER ACROSS THE AREA
WILL SLOWLY SHIFT EAST ON SUNDAY. AS A RESULT, AN UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE WILL APPROACH THE AREA FROM THE WEST, BRINGING SLIGHT
CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS TO NORTHWEST ALABAMA TOMORROW.
SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL INCREASE TOMORROW WITH GUSTS UP TO 15-20MPH
POSSIBLE AT TIMES. OTHERWISE, RH VALUES WILL REMAIN AT OR ABOVE
CRITICAL THRESHOLDS WITH THE INCREASE IN MOISTURE THIS WEEK, SO
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE RATHER LIMITED.

SEVERAL OTHER DISTURBANCES WILL TRAVERSE THE AREA THROUGH THE WEEK,
KEEPING IN CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS EACH DAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
