.DISCUSSION...

AN UPPER-LEVEL VORT MAX IS SWINGING ACROSS THE TENNESSEE VALLEY
WITH AN ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT MOVING QUICKLY ACROSS ALABAMA. THIS
CAUSED SOME VERY LIGHT RAIN IN A FAST MOVING BAND EARLIER THIS
EVENING...BUT THE ACTIVITY HAS SINCE DISSIPATED. TEMPERATURES ARE
RUNNING WARMER THAN FORECAST BUT COLD ADVECTION SHOULD KICK IN
BEHIND THE FRONT AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN FROM THE NORTHWEST.
USED A BLEND OF RAW 2 METER TEMPS FOR OVERNIGHT LOWS SINCE WINDS
SHOULD REMAIN STEADY IN THE 5-10 KNOT RANGE OVERNIGHT.

THE INITIAL FROPA HAS MOVED THRU MOST OF CENTRAL ALABAMA EXCEPT
THE SOUTHEAST COUNTIES. THE WIND DIRECTION WILL GENERALLY BE FROM
THE WEST THRU 15Z AND THEN BECOMING NORTHWEST AFTER 15Z. AS THE
MAIN SHORT WAVE TROF ROTATES THRU THE AREA BETWEEN 12Z AND 18Z...
AN AREA OF LOWER CLOUDS WILL PUSH ACROSS NORTH ALABAMA...BUT CIGS
WILL LIKELY REMAIN ABOVE 3000 FEET AGL.
