.DISCUSSION...

The remnants of Cindy are interacting with a southward moving cold
front this morning with much of the area experiencing shower
activity. This general scenario should continue today with the
highest rain chances shifting southward through the day. The front
should have enough upper-level support to continue moving
southward tonight for rain chances to be confined to the far
southern portion of the area on Sunday. A slightly stronger push
from northerly flow will probably lead to a dry forecast for the
entire CWA for Monday and Tuesday. Rain chances may return for
Wednesday through Friday as high pressure shifts eastward,
allowing higher moisture content to move inland.

.AVIATION...
12Z TAF Discussion.

Scattered to numerous showers and MVFR to IFR cigs are currently
present in the moist air mass ahead of a cold front moving into
northwest AL. Cigs should rise to VFR by midday with showers
continuing. Confidence in thunder at any particular terminal is
too low to include in the TAFs at this time due to weak lapse
rates and uncertainties related to timing. Amendments will be made
if necessary. Conditions dry out this evening behind the front.
Will have to monitor for any low clouds/fog at TOI near the front
overnight tonight, while elsewhere low-levels will dry out with
only mid to high level clouds.

.FIRE WEATHER...

High rain chances will continue through today with rain chances
decreasing for Sunday and Monday behind a cold front. Soggy
conditions will preclude any fire weather concerns.
