For 06Z TAFs.
(Issued 906 PM CDT WED AUG 31 2016)
Except for a few lingering showers across extreme nw GA into a small
portion of ne AL, early evening convection has all but come to an end
with the loss of daytime heating. Skies were also clearing nicely
across most of the area except where the lingering rainfall is near.
This precip should be ending within the next hr based on the latest
hi-res models, with cloud cover continuing to diminish. Quiet wx
conditions should then prevail heading into the overnight hrs, as
early morning lows fall into the lower 70s for most locations. Cold
front positioned well n of the cntrl TN Valley over the Midwest
states into the OH Valley region will continue to dive swd going into
the daytime hrs Thu, with iso/sct showers/tstms developing along/just
ahead of the approaching sfc boundary. For now though, rain chances
were removed for the remainder of the evening period based on the
current trend. No other major changes to the afternoon forecast are
needed at this point.
For 06Z TAFs: With clouds continuing to diminish across the area, VFR
conds are generally xpcted well into the daytime hrs. Only exception
may be some very brief -br during the early morning period, mainly
near the KMSL terminal. A cold front out of the n should then dive
swd across the region during the day, with iso/sct shra/tsra possible
along/ahead of the front. Confidence is not high enough though to
warrant any mention in the TAFs attm. Sfc winds will increase out of
the n near 10kt with the frontal passage.
