Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
1030 AM CDT Thu Sep 29 2016

.UPDATE...To tweak dewpoints lower and increase cloud cover slightly
this afternoon.

.DISCUSSION...
The dry cold front that moved through northern Alabama last night
currently extends from South Carolina southwest into the Florida
panhandle. It was a bit warmer start this morning with lows in the
upper 40s to lower 50s. This was mainly due to northerly winds that
remained around 5 mph overnight, despite limited cloud cover. Expect
some mixing of drier air and wind energy aloft later this afternoon
south of the Tennessee River. Thus tweaked dewpoints and relative
humidity values down slightly and kept wind gusts around 15 mph this
afternoon. Otherwise, a nice day with highs in the lower 70s.
Increasing cloud cover should occur later this afternoon as cloud
cover associated with a larger upper level low sinks south. Models
are painting a few showers approaching Southern Middle Tennessee this
evening, but will leave out of the forecast today. No other changes
made to the forecast.
