.DISCUSSION...
(Issued 1029 AM CDT Tue Sep 27 2016)
This morning finally felt like Fall with cooler and drier air in
place, thanks to the passage of the cold front yesterday. Overnight
lows were cooler by several degrees, getting into the lower 60s with
dewpoints continuing to fall.

The combination of a weak disturbance swinging around the upper-
level low anchored across the Great Lakes and slight isentropic lift
in NE AL may contribute to isolated showers/thunderstorms across the
NE AL this afternoon. However, not sure that there will be enough
moisture as the mid and upper-levels dry out pretty quick today so
continued to keep precip out of the forecast for today. Adjusted
cloud cover, with visible satellite showing some bkn/ovc lingering
across NE AL a little bit longer than originally forecasted,
otherwise temps will be substantially cooler across the board with
high temps in the upper 70s to low 80s.
