.DISCUSSION...

Line of storms earlier across portions of West Tennessee and North
Mississippi have decreased as they entered Northwest Alabama with
the loss of heating and boundaries outrunning storms, but will
none the less keep some slightly higher pops in the northwest
counties for the next couple of hours. Spotty activity elsewhere
has decreased overall and should continue that trend. No major
changes in overnight lows, which should be mainly in the lower
70s.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF Discussion.

VFR conditions continue to prevail at all terminals this evening.
A few showers remain across eastern Alabama, but is expected to
remain south of KANB. Trends in latest data and guidance continue
to indicate a low chance of reduced cigs due to the overall lack
of isentropic lift. There`s still a chance of some patchy fog at
KANB due to rainfall that was observed earlier this afternoon but
if any impacts occur they should be minimal and short-lived. VFR
conditions will prevail through the day on Saturday, with
scattered showers and storms expected once again during the
afternoon and evening. Surface winds will prevail from the west
and west-southwest and remain light.

56/GDG

.FIRE WEATHER...

Generally scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected over
the next several days with highs in the upper 80s and low/mid 90s.
Surface winds will be less than 10 mph and generally from the
southwest/west through the weekend. Since surface dew points are
so high, critical fire weather thresholds are not expected to be
met, with no watches or warnings anticipated.
