.DISCUSSION...

GOT A COUPLE OF LONE SHOWERS POPPING UP IN SOUTHEASTERN ALABAMA
THIS AFTERNOON...OTHERWISE RAINFREE CONDITIONS GOING INTO THE
EVENING HOURS.

SOME DRIER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO FILTER INTO THE AREA WITH LOWER
HUMIDITY VALUES THAN IN RECENT DAYS. NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT IS
BRINGING IN SOME WEAK LIFT TO THE DEEP SOUTH AND MIGHT BE ABLE TO
SQUEEZE OUT A FEW SPRINKLES OR AN ISOLATED SHOWER THURSDAY BUT
MOISTURE REMAINS TOO LIMITED TOO INCLUDE POPS AT THIS TIME.

SOME MOISTURE TRIES TO PUSH INTO EASTERN ALABAMA ON FRIDAY WITH A
BACKDOOR FRONT. AGAIN...WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE AND ISOLATED
SHOWER OR TWO BUT CHANCES STILL TOO SMALL TO INCLUDE AT THIS TIME.

ANOTHER FRONT PUSHES IN FROM THE NORTH EARLY NEXT WEEK BUT TOO
LITTLE LIFT AND TOO LITTLE MOISTURE TO INCLUDE ANYTHING HIGHER
THAN SLIGHT CHANCE WORDING.

TEMPERATURES LOOK SEASONABLE WITH HIGHS MAINLY IN THE 80S AND LOWS
RANGING FROM THE MID 50S TO MID 60S DEPENDING ON MICRO-CLIMATE
EFFECTS.
