.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 1052 AM CDT FRI AUG 28 2015/
THIS MORNING WAS CLEAR AND SEASONABLY COOL WITH OVERNIGHT LOWS IN
THE LOWER 60S FOR MOST. CURRENT VISIBLE SATELLITE SHOWS CLOUD COVER
FROM NW GA AND CENTRAL AL MOVING INTO THE AREA. HOWEVER...RADAR IS
CLEAR AND WILL HOLD ONTO A DRY FORECAST FOR ANOTHER DAY.

THE UPPER LEVEL LOW IN THE GULF...RESPONSIBLE FOR STREAMING CLOUDS
INTO THE EASTERN GULF COAST REGION...WILL CONTINUE TO ADVECT CLOUD
COVER THROUGHOUT THE DAY. THEREFORE...ADJUSTED THE TREND OF CLOUD
COVER FOR THE DAY AND LOWERED THE TEMPS BY A DEGREE OR SO. NORTHWEST
AL HAS SEEN MORE SUNSHINE THUS FAR TODAY AND EVEN THOUGH THE OTHER
HALF OF THE FORECAST AREA IS NOT LAGGING FAR BEHIND ON TEMPS...CLOUD
COVER WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE AND PROGRESS NW THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
TEMPS WILL BE WARMER TODAY REACHING THE UPPER 80S.

.AVIATION...
FOR 18Z TAFS...

VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE FIRST 12 TO 15 HOURS OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. SCATTERED MID LEVEL CLOUDS WILL CONTINUE TO STREAM
INTO THE AREA...WITH WINDS BECOMING MORE SOUTHEASTERLY BY THE
OVERNIGHT PERIOD. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO
INCREASE...WHICH WILL LIKELY LEAD TO REDUCED VISIBILITIES EARLY
SATURDAY MORNING. AS OF NOW...CONFIDENCE IS ONLY HIGH ENOUGH TO
INCLUDE MVFR MIST...GIVEN THE DRY AIRMASS THAT HAS BEEN IN PLACE OVER
THE LAST FEW DAYS. VISIBILITIES WILL IMPROVE AFTER DAYBREAK...AS THE
MIST BEGINS TO MIX OUT.
