.DISCUSSION...

ISOLATED ACTIVITY OUT THERE THIS EVENING AS OUTFLOWS HAVE
CONTINUED TO TRIGGER SHOWERS AND STORMS WITH THE ADDITION OF ALL
THAT HEAT OUT THERE THIS EVENING. IT TRULY HAS BEEN A TYPICAL
SUMMER NIGHT FOR CENTRAL ALABAMA. REALLY TWO MAIN OUTFLOWS LEFT
FOR THE NIGHT. ONE IS MOVING ACROSS THE WEST AND IS NOW RAPIDLY
ACCELERATING AWAY FROM THE STORM IN PICKENS COUNTY. WILL STILL SEE
ISOLATED SHOWERS AND STORMS FROM IT THROUGH MIDNIGHT...BUT NOT
EXPECTING MUCH MORE. A SECOND BOUNDARY IS MOVING WEST THROUGH BIBB
COUNTY AND IS THE REMNANT OF THE STORMS THAT DEVELOPED SOUTH OF
THE BIRMINGHAM METRO EARLIER TONIGHT. THAT STORM FORMED ON A
BOUNDARY THAT GENERATED FROM THE STORMS IN WESTERN GEORGIA EARLIER
THIS AFTERNOON. AS WE CONTINUE TO LOOSE THE DAYTIME HEATING THE
ACTIVITY SHOULD DIMINISH FOR THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. THEN ATTENTION
SHIFTS TO THE HEAT WAVE THAT WILL BE IN PLACE FOR FRIDAY AND
SATURDAY.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF DISCUSSION.

CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN VFR FOR MOST OF THE AREA FOR
MOST OF THE NEXT 24 HOURS. WHILE IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET SOME LIGHT
FOG OVERNIGHT...I JUST THINK THE POSSIBILITIES ARE REMOTE ENOUGH
SO THAT WE CAN LEAVE OUT ANY VISIBILITY RESTRICTIONS FOR NOW.

.BMX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
HEAT ADVISORY FROM 11 AM FRIDAY TO 9 PM CDT SATURDAY FOR ALL OF
