.DISCUSSION...

AN MCV MOVED ACROSS SOUTH ALABAMA THIS EVENING AND THIS IS WHERE
MOST OF THE RAIN HAS FALLEN SINCE SUNSET. THE IMPULSE IS WEAKENING
AND THE RAIN SHIELD IS BECOMING SMALLER AND LESS DEFINED. SOME
LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS WERE OBSERVED ACROSS NORTH ALABAMA. THE RAIN
SHOULD BECOME MORE FOCUSED ACROSS EXTREME NORTH ALABAMA AFTER
MIDNIGHT AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE AREA. SURFACE
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN STEADY OR POSSIBLY FALL A FEW MORE
DEGREES OVERNIGHT...DUE TO CLOUD COVER AND STRONG INVERSION JUST
ABOVE THE SURFACE.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF DISCUSSION.

WE`VE SEEN SOME HIGHLY FLUCTUATING CIGS THE PAST FEW HOURS BUT IFR
CIGS ARE EXPECTED AT ALL TERMINALS WITHIN THE HOUR. CONDITIONS
WILL LIKELY DETERIORATE TO LIFR AT MOST LOCATIONS LATER TONIGHT
THANKS TO CONTINUED ISENTROPIC LIFT AND LOW LEVEL MOISTURE. THE
LOW CIGS WILL CAUSE RESTRICTIONS TO VIS AS WELL. STILL NOT SEEING
ANYTHING THAT WOULD SUGGEST SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS ON MONDAY SO
WILL MAINTAIN IFR CIGS THRU THE DAY FOR NOW. WINDS WILL REMAIN
LIGHT AND VARIABLE THRU THE PERIOD.
