LOW STRATUS MOVING W OUT OF W CNTRL GA HAS FOR THE MOST PART STAYED S
OF THE LOCAL AREA...AND STARTED TO GRADUALLY DIMINISH OVER THE PAST
HR OR SO WITH THE ONSET OF DAYTIME HEATING. THIS FOR THE MOST PART
SHOULD BE THE TREND HEADING INTO THE LATE MORNING HRS...ALTHOUGH A
FEW OF THESE LOW CLOUDS MAY STILL MAKE THEIR WAY INTO PARTS OF NE AL
OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF HRS BEFORE LIFTING. OTHERWISE...IT SHOULD BE
A FAIRLY NICE AND SEASONABLY WARM DAY FOR THIS TIME OF THE YR. THE
MESOSCALE/SHORT RANGE MODELS ARE SHOWING SOME WEAKNESS IN THE UPPER
AIR PATTERN ACROSS THE MID SOUTH REGION PERHAPS DEVELOPING LATER THIS
AFTERNOON...WITH A FEW SHOWERS/TSTMS POSSIBLE. THIS ACTIVITY THOUGH
LOOKS TO REMAIN WELL TO THE NW OF THE LOCAL AREA IN CLOSER PROXIMITY
TO THE ONCOMING UPPER TROUGH AXIS INTO THE EARLY EVENING HRS. OTHER
THAN TO GO WITH AN OPTIMISTICALLY MOSTLY SUNNY FORECAST FOR THE
REMAINDER OF THE DAY...NO CHANGES WERE NEEDED TO THE GRIDS ATTM.
