.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...
18Z TAF Discussion.

Low level moisture remains plentiful across central Alabama due to
remnants of Tropical Cyclone Cindy. Cigs will continue in the
2000-3000 feet agl range thru 23z, with cigs likely rising above
3000 feet agl or becoming scattered after 23z as drier air works
southward. A weak cold front has pushed into nw Alabama and will
be near the I-59 corridor by 21z. Sct showers and possibly a few
tstms will develop along the front this afternoon and early
evening. Southwest winds 5-8 knots ahead of the front will become
northwest after frontal passage. The front will likely reach the
I-85 corridor by 09z. Continued with chance of shwrs only in the
KTOI TAF after 00z.

58/rose

.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.
