AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
917 PM CDT MON JUL 6 2015

.UPDATE...
EVENING UPDATE.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

ISOLATED SHOWERS WERE OBSERVED EARLIER IN THE EVENING...HOWEVER ALL
ACTIVITY HAS DISSIPATED ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. LATEST WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS AN UPPER TROUGH MOVING NORTHEAST ACROSS THE
APPALACHIANS...WITH DRY AIR FILTERING ON THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF
THE TROUGH. MEANWHILE...SEVERAL WEAK UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVES WERE
DRIFTING EASTWARD ACROSS THE PLAINS AND MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. ISOLATED
TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DEVELOPED ACROSS EASTERN ARKANSAS IN
RESPONSE TO THESE DISTURBANCES...AND CLOUD COVER WAS SLOWLY MOVING
SOUTHEASTWARD INTO THE WESTERN PORTION OF THE FORECAST AREA.

FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT PERIOD...EXPECT CLOUD
COVER TO CONTINUE TO MOVE IN...LIMITING THE COOLING OVERNIGHT.
THEREFORE...LOWS WERE RAISED BY A FEW DEGREES ACROSS THE AREA.
ADDITIONALLY...THE DRY AIR ALOFT SHOULD REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE
EAST...AND HAVE TRIMMED THE POPS BACK ACROSS THESE AREAS. WHILE NOT
WIDESPREAD...THE NORTHWESTERN PORTION OF THE FORECAST AREA MAY SEE AN
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS AS THE UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES CLOSER TO
THE AREA.

.AVIATION...
/ISSUED 625 PM CDT MON JUL 6 2015/
FOR 00Z TAFS...

VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH AT LEAST THE FIRST 6 HOURS OF
THE FORECAST PERIOD. SKIES WILL REMAIN PARTLY CLOUDY...WITH CEILINGS
ABOVE 5000 FT. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE REMAINS FAIRLY HIGH...AND PATCHY
MVFR VISIBILITIES ARE POSSIBLE TUESDAY MORNING. FOR NOW...HAVE
MENTION OF MVFR MIST AT KMSL...BUT NOT CONFIDENT ENOUGH FOR THE KHSV
TERMINAL...GIVEN THE LACK OF FOG/MIST THIS MORNING. ANY FOG/MIST THAT
DOES DEVELOP WILL LIFT QUICKLY ONCE THE SUN RISES...LEAVING VFR
CONDITIONS THROUGH THE END OF THE PERIOD.
