Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
1200 AM CDT SUN JUL 31 2016
For 06Z TAFs.
(Issued 932 PM CDT SAT JUL 30 2016)
Mostly cloudy conditions were continuing across the forecast area at
02z with temps ranging from the mid to upper 70s. Another area of
showers/storms were moving east-southeast out of east Arkansas into
west Mississippi. Will continue to watch this precip area and will
keep in a slight chance pop overnight to account for uncertainty
involving whether the showers/storms will dissipate before they
reach northeast Mississippi/northwest Alabama. Have only made minor
adjustments to temps/cloud cover and pops overnight. Have added in a
mention of patchy fog after midnight based upon short term model trends.
Precip that fell today in some valley locations, increased the low
level moisture, which may result in some fog development.
Will be updating the forecast shortly.
For 06Z TAFs: MVFR fog conditions are expected to occur by around
07z at MSL and around 08z at HSV. Will continue with TEMPO to
predominant MVFR fog and ceiling conditions at both TAF sites until
around 12z. VCTS is expected between 18z-19z at HSV and MSL and will
increase TSRA chances into the PROB30 category after the 19z-20z
time frame until between the 00z-01z time period. VFR conditions are
expected after 00z with VCSH conditions possible through the end of
the TAF forecast period.
