MID/HIGH CLOUDS CONTINUE TO STREAM NWD ACROSS THE ERN GULF COASTAL
STATES...AIDED BY A BROAD UPPER DISTURBANCE DEVELOPING OVER THE
CNTRL/ERN GULF REGION. THIS HAS RESULTED IN SOME LINGERING AREAS OF
SHOWERS/TSTMS OVER CNTRL AL...A FEW OF WHICH ARE APPROACHING THE FAR
SRN HALF OF THE FORECAST AREA. THIS ACTIVITY IS WEAKENING WITH THE
LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING...BUT STILL MAY WORK INTO PORTIONS OF SRN
CULLMAN CO IN THE NEXT HR OR SO BEFORE DIMINISHING. OTHERWISE...SKIES
LOOK TO BECOME PARTLY CLOUDY AT LEAST FOR MUCH OF THE OVERNIGHT HRS
WITH THE INLAND SURGE OF MOISTURE. THE FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED
SLIGHTLY BASED ON THE EXPCTED SKY COVER AND SLIGHTLY HIGHER POPS
SWD. OTHER THAN REFRESHING A FEW OF THE HRLY GRIDS BASED ON THE
LATEST WX TRENDS...NO FURTHER CHANGES ARE NEEDED AT THIS POINT.
