NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
142 PM CDT THU APR 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A DRY COLD FRONT IS MOVING THROUGH THE TN VALLEY TODAY. WEAK HIGH
PRESSURE DEVELOPS TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY AND WILL ALLOW FOR RH VALUES
TO DROP INTO THE 30 PERCENT RANGE ON FRIDAY. THIS WILL BE SHORT-LIVED
THOUGH AS A SYSTEM DEVELOPS TO OUR WEST SENDING MOISTURE BACK INTO
THE REGION FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. RAIN AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES
INCREASE FROM FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY. A FEW STRONG STORMS ON
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY ARE POSSIBLE WITH GUSTY WINDS, HAIL, AND HEAVY
RAIN THE PRIMARY IMPACTS. WE MAY HOLD ONTO RAIN AS WE ENTER EARLY
NEXT WEEK BUT THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY IN HOW LONG RAIN CHANCES
WILL CONTINUE NEXT WEEK. BY THE MIDDLE OF THE NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE
UNDER A COOLER AND DRIER NW FLOW.
