AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
448 AM CDT THU OCT 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...
A COOL START TO THE DAY WITH PATCHY FOG ALONG BODIES OF WATER AND IN
THE VALLEYS THIS MORNING. WITH THE SFC HIGH STRETCHED FROM THE OHIO
VALLEY DOWN TO THE GULF...NORTHERLY WINDS WILL KEEP TEMPS JUST BELOW
SEASONABLE VALUES IN THE MID 60S TODAY WITH DRY CONDITIONS.

AS THE HIGH PRESSURE MOVES SOUTHEAST THROUGHOUT TODAY...A COLD FRONT
WILL CONTINUE TO APPROACH FROM THE NORTHWEST. THIS FRONT WILL MOVE
INTO THE AREA FRIDAY MORNING/AFTERNOON SWEEPING IN THE COLDEST AIR
THUS FAR THIS FALL. THE NORTHERLY WINDS WILL PICK UP BEHIND THE FRONT
TO ALLOW FOR BREEZY CONDITIONS BUT AT THIS TIME NOT ENOUGH FOR A WIND
ADVISORY. WITH THE WINDS STAYING UP THROUGH THE NIGHT...THIS WILL
ASSIST WITH THE REDUCTION OF FROST DEVELOPMENT EVEN WITH TEMPS
DIPPING TO AROUND FREEZING FRIDAY NIGHT/SATURDAY MORNING. EVEN
THOUGH THERE IS NOT MUCH MOISTURE AHEAD OF THE FRONT TO WORK
WITH...KEPT IN A SMALL POP FOR FRIDAY AFTN FOR SLIGHT CHANCE OF A FEW
SHOWERS. THE BEST CHANCE FOR PRECIP WILL STAY TO OUR NORTH/NORTHEAST.

AS THE LOW LIFTS TO THE NE AND HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE
WEST ON SATURDAY EVENING...WINDS WILL SLACK BY SUNDAY MORNING. THIS
WILL AID IN THE CONCERN FOR FROST/FREEZE SUNDAY MORNING AS TEMPS
WILL BE AROUND FREEZING AGAIN. AS THE HIGH PRESSURE ANCHORS OVER THE
SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND...TEMPS WILL HAVE A SLOW WARM UP TO
START THE NEW WORK WEEK BACK IN THE 60S. OUR NEXT SYSTEM WILL MOVE IN
ON TUESDAY NIGHT/WED AS A COLD FRONT WILL BRING A CHANCE OF RAIN
INTO THE FORECAST.
