.DISCUSSION...
Even with the cloud cover currently moving through, temps are on the
rise this morning reaching into the mid/upper 70s! The upper level
ridge just off to our west will stream in additional cloud cover and
some moisture into the region today. Looking at BUFR soundings,
they moisten throughout the day slowly eroding the large amount of
dry air in the low/mid levels. However, if the showers up to our NW
make it into NW AL today, not expecting any precip to make it to the
surface. Adjusted cloud cover and increased temps a degree or so in
a few locations to accommodate current visible satellite and surface
observational trends. Have high temps reaching the upper 80s by this
afternoon. However, depending on cloud cover temps could go a little
bit warmer...so could we reach 90? We have not reached 90 degrees
thus far in 2016!
