.UPDATE...
EVENING UPDATE.

.DISCUSSION...

RADAR IS QUIET ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA THIS EVENING AND EXPECT THIS
TO CONTINUE THRU THE NIGHT. NO MAJOR CHANGES NEEDED TO THE ONGOING
FORECAST EXCEPT TO ADD MENTION OF PATCHY FOG AFTER 06Z. SKIES
WILL BE MOSTLY CLEAR WITH TEMPS FALLING INTO THE UPPER 60S AND LOW
70S ONCE AGAIN.

.AVIATION...
00Z TAF DISCUSSION.

ONLY AVIATION CONCERN FOR THIS FORECAST PERIOD IS THE POSSIBILITY OF
MVFR VIS DUE TO LIGHT FOG TONIGHT. ANY REDUCTIONS IN VIS WILL
IMPROVE QUICKLY WITH SUNRISE TUESDAY. OTHERWISE...LIGHT WINDS FROM
THE SOUTHWEST WILL CONTINUE TOMORROW.

14

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...

THE WEATHER PATTERN DURING THE UPCOMING WEEK WILL BE MORE TYPICAL
OF SUMMER ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL BECOME
WARMER AND RAIN CHANCES WILL DECREASE SOMEWHAT AS AN UPPER RIDGE
BUILDS OVER THE SOUTHEAST STATES.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 301 PM CDT MON JUL 6 2015/

VERY LITTLE IN THE WAY OF CONVECTION ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA THIS
AFTERNOON...AS THE UPPER LEVEL LOW FROM THE WEEKEND HAS MOVED FAR
ENOUGH AWAY TO HAVE ANY INFLUENCE. WILL CARRY 10 PERCENT POPS INTO
THE EVENING HOURS TO ACCOUNT FOR ANY ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT...BUT
THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE AREA WILL BE DRY TONIGHT.

MODEL OUTPUT OVER THE UPCOMING WEEK SHOW THE PRIMARY STORM TRACK
STAYING WELL TO OUR NORTH...AND AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE ESTABLISHING
ITSELF ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES. THIS WILL KEEP RAIN CHANCES
AT OR BELOW CLIMO LEVELS FOR THE NEXT 5 TO 7 DAYS. THE UPPER RIDGE
WILL ALSO HELP AFTERNOON TEMPS CLIMB BACK INTO THE 90S.

THE RIDGE APPEARS TO SHIFT SLOWLY TO THE WEST TOWARD THE END OF
THE WEEK AND NEXT WEEKEND...ALLOWING A NORTHWEST UPPER FLOW TO
DEVELOP IN THE EASTERN THIRD OF THE COUNTRY.
