.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 1048 AM CDT SAT AUG 1 2015/
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS CLEARING SKIES THIS MORNING, AFTER
MID-HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK, MOISTURE-STARVED
SHORTWAVE TROUGH SHIFTED OFF TO THE SOUTHEAST. DEEP-LAYER MOISTURE
IS STILL ANOMALOUSLY LOW (PWATS ARE 0.6-0.8 INCHES, OR 40-50% OF
NORMAL) THOUGH THERE ARE SOME SURFACE DEWPOINTS IN THE MID-UPPER 60S
IN PARTS OF NORTHERN ALABAMA. OTHERWISE, REGIONAL WEATHER IS STILL
DOMINATED BY SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE AND DRY NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT.

DRY CONDITIONS UNDER NORTH/NORTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL CONTINUE TODAY
WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. HIGHS SHOULD EASILY REACH INTO THE LOWER
(EVEN MIDDLE?) 90S WITH SUCH DRY AIR IN PLACE, AND MIXING SHOULD PUSH
DEWPOINTS BACK DOWN INTO THE 50S FOR THE AFTERNOON. ASIDE FROM A FEW
TWEAKS TO TEMPERATURES, DEWPOINTS, AND SKY COVER TO MATCH ONGOING
TRENDS, FEW CHANGES ARE NEEDED TO THE ONGOING FORECAST FOR TODAY.
