National Weather Service Huntsville AL
502 AM CST Wed Mar 1 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is expected to move
eastward across the area today. Some storms will be capable of
producing damaging winds and large hail. A cold front will follow
the line of storms and exit the area to the east this evening.
Winds ahead of the front will be out of the south around 15 to 20
MPH with higher gusts today before shifting to the north and
diminishing this evening with the frontal passage. High pressure
out of the west will then build into the region tonight into Thu,
with cooler and drier weather in tow. Dry and mild weather
conditions will prevail into the weekend period as the surface
high gradually makes its way eastward across the region.

Fog potential over the next few days: None at this time.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
