Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...

Isolated showers and storms, primarily in the south and west
portion of the forecast area, are expected to diminish once we
lose the heating of the day. That will leave clear to partly
cloudy skies for the rest of tonight. Looks like we have one more
similar day tomorrow, with lots of unseasonably warm temperatures
and isolated to scattered convection in the southern half to third
of central Alabama.

The next main feature to watch, early in the work week, remains a
cold front that is forecast to push into our area. The timing of
the cold front`s passage still looks like Monday afternoon through
Tuesday morning. There`s not an overwhelming amount of moisture
associated with this system by the time it gets to us, and it
looks like chance POPs, at most, is the proper play. POPs on
Tuesday will be limited to the southeast section, as drier and
cooler post-frontal air filters in from the north.

High pressure builds into the region for the rest of the week, as
temps actually drop to near (or even slightly below) seasonal
normals.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAF Discussion.

VFR conditions are expected through the period. FEW to SCT clouds
expected today, especially east-central as moisture aloft
increases from the east. A slight chance of SHRA is forecast for
MGM/TOI today, however, chances are too low to mention. No
concerns overnight. An upper low will provide more support on
Sunday for isolated SHRA/TSRA at MGM/TOI from late morning through
the afternoon hours.

.FIRE WEATHER...

Slight chance of isolated showers/storms on Sunday. A front with
better rain chances will move through on Monday into Tuesday
morning. Beginning Tuesday afternoon, drier weather returns for
the remainder of the week. No fire weather concerns are
anticipated.
