GUSTY SOUTHERLY WINDS CONTINUE ACROSS MUCH OF CENTRAL ALABAMA IN THE WAKE
OF THE DEEPENING SURFACE LOW THAT WILL QUICKLY MOVE INTO THE GREAT
LAKES STATES BY MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. MEANWHILE...SOUTHERLY SURFACE
FLOW WILL KEEP MOISTURE LEVELS RELATIVELY HIGH AND INCREASE CLOUD
COVER OVERNIGHT. THE CLOUDS WILL BASICALLY CAUSE TEMPERATURES TO
BE STEADY IN THE UPPER 50S AND LOWER 60S...AND HAVE RAISED
OVERNIGHT LOWS AREAWIDE. DUE TO THE LOW STRATUS DEVELOPMENT...HAVE
KEPT PATCHY FOG IN THE FORECAST DUE TO THE LOW CLOUDS CAUSING
OCCASIONAL VISIBILITY RESTRICTIONS. THE CLOUDS SHOULD EVENTUALLY
MIX OUT MONDAY MORNING AS THE COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE WEST.
UPDATES ARE ALREADY OUT.
