.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 927 PM CDT WED MAY 4 2016/
WEAK CDFNT NOW MOVING INTO NE AL AS SHRA/TSRA HAVE JUST ABOUT ENDED
ACROSS THE CWA. ALSO CLOUDS CONTINUE TO QUICKLY MOVE OUT OF THE TN
VALLEY. THUS WENT AHEAD AND ADJUSTED SKY GRIDS TO MOSTLY CLR ACROSS
THE CWA FOR THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AND MADE SOME MINOR TWEAKS TO WINDS.
TEMPS LOOK OK ATTM. WILL NOT MENTION ANY FOG FOR NOW DUE TO VERY
LIMITED RAINFALL TODAY AND A MUCH DRIER AIR MASS MOVING ACROSS THE
AREA.

.AVIATION...
FOR 06Z TAFS...AN UPPER LOW NOW OVER THE OHIO VALLEY WILL MOVE SE TO
THE MID ATLANTIC STATES BY THURSDAY MRNG. THIS WILL PRODUCE 8H WINDS
ARND 30KT WHICH WILL TRANSLATE TO SFC WIND GUSTS ARND 25 KT OR EVEN
A LITTLE HIGHER. ALSO THERE COULD BE A SLIGHT CHC OF SHRA AS THE
UPPER LOW APPROACHES THE REGION. HOWEVER FOR NOW THINKING THAT ANY
PCPN WILL STAY EAST OF THE TAF SITES. ADDED MVFR FOG IN TAFS SINCE WE
ARE RECEIVING SOME REPORTS ARND THE CWA. OTHERWISE EXCEPT FOR MVFR
CONDITIONS BETWEEN 10Z AND 14Z (DUE TO PATCHY FOG)...THE REMAINDER
OF FCST WILL BE VFR CONDITIONS.
