STRATUS BLANKETING DE KALB...JACKSON AND MARSHALL COUNTIES IN ALABAMA
THIS MORNING. THE CLOUD DECK SHOULD REMAIN ACROSS THESE EASTERN
ZONES TODAY PER THE LATEST HRRR/RUC/NAM RUNS...WHICH WILL KEEP TEMPS
ON THE COOL SIDE FOR THOSE AREAS. THE CLEAR SKIES ELSEWHERE HAVE
ALLOWED TEMPERATURES TO WARM RAPIDLY AND WE ARE CURRENTLY SITTING AT
THE HIGHS FROM YESTERDAY THIS EARLY IN THE DAY. WENT AHEAD AND NUDGED
TEMPS UP 4 TO 5 DEGREES FOR AREAS THAT REMAIN CLEAR TODAY AS WELL AS
ADJUSTING SKY GRIDS TO ACCOUNT FOR LATEST TRENDS. THE REST OF THE
