.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 933 PM CDT MON MAY 2 2016/
AS OF 0230Z...THE BASE OF AN UPPER TROUGH IS MOVING INTO SOUTHEAST
MISSOURI WITH A COLD FRONT NEARLY STATIONARY DRAPED SW TO NE FROM
NEAR BIRMINGHAM UP THROUGH THE NORTHEAST ALABAMA CORNER. LINGERING
SHOWERS ARE CONTINUING ALONG IT AND SLOWLY DISSIPATING AND SHIFTING
SOUTHEAST WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING. A SLIGHTLY DRIER AND
COOLER NW FLOW IS RETURNING BEHIND IT WHICH IS ALSO EVIDENT IN THE
LATEST WATER VAPOR IMAGERY. THIS WILL KEEP SHOWERS AT A MINIMUM
TONIGHT BUT WITH THE UPPER TROUGH STILL TO THE NORTHWEST AND DEW
POINTS REMAINING IN THE UPPER 50S/LOWER 60S...WILL MAINTAIN A SLIGHT
CHANCE POP. THUNDER CHANCES TONIGHT WILL BE LESS THAN 15% SO WILL
NOT INCLUDE IN THE FORECAST AT THIS TIME.

LINGERING MOISTURE AND COOLING TEMPS WILL KEEP LOW CLOUDS OVER THE
AREA TONIGHT. HOWEVER SOME AREAS THAT SEE SOME CLEARING COULD SEE
SOME POCKETS OF FOG BUT CURRENTLY CONFIDENCE IS TOO LOW TO INCLUDE IN
THE GRIDS AT THIS TIME.
