.DISCUSSION...
SHOWERS AND STORMS IN THE NORTHERN GULF OF MEXICO CONTINUE TO PUSH
NORTHEAST INTO THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE. AT THE SAME TIME SCATTERED
SHOWERS CONTINUE TO PUSH ACROSS SOUTHERN ARKANSAS AND NORTHERN LA
AHEAD OF AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVING EAST THROUGH EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND NW MISSOURI. OVER NORTHERN AL AND SOUTHERN MIDDLE
TN...THICK MID AND HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS CONTINUE TO PERSIST.
TEMPERATURES IN MOST LOCATIONS HAVE MANAGED TO DROP INTO THE MID TO
UPPER 50S...DESPITE CLOUD COVER. TOWARD MIDNIGHT...BELIEVE THAT WINDS
WILL BECOME SUSTAINED AROUND 5 TO 10 MPH IN MOST LOCATIONS. THIS
ALONG WITH CONTINUED CLOUD COVER SHOULD KEEP LOW TEMPERATURES FROM
DROPPING BELOW THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER/MID 50S. EXPECT LOWER/MID 50
LOWS MAINLY WEST OF I-65. THEREFORE RAISED TEMPERATURES FROM PREVIOUS
FORECAST A BIT. NAM12 AND GFS40 STILL SHOW VERY ISOLATED
PRECIPITATION AFTER 3 AM...MAINLY IN OUR SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES AND
NEAR THE AL/MS STATE LINES...SO LEFT POPS ALONE.
