.DISCUSSION...
 (Issued 845 PM CDT FRI MAY 27 2016)

A line of storms developed along a weak surface boundary across
portions of NE AL. This activity has remained in the same general
area, and has finally made a more northward progression. Latest radar
trends shows the storms weakening as they move out of AL and into TN,
with the loss of daytime heating. This activity will more than
likely be dissipated within the next hour or two. To our west, a
line of storms over W MS was also weakening as it moves into a
slightly more stable airmass. This activity was the result of a
shortwave that will continue to move northeast, and may reach western
AL after midnight. However, given the trends and the diminishing
instability, not confident on the eastward extent of the precip.
Therefore, have reduced pops for areas E of I-65. Otherwise,
temperatures have dropped a degree or two more, but with incoming
dense cirrus, the forecast low temperatures are reasonable.
Therefore, only additional changes to the previous forecast was to
update the hourly trends.

into the 8 to 10 kt range on Saturday. Light rain may impact the

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Saturday,
however confidence is too low to add mention in the forecast, as the
