.DISCUSSION...

SHORTWAVE ROTATING NORTHWARD AROUND THE WEST SIDE OF THE UPPER
RIDGE OVER LA/MS/AL. ONLY A FEW ISOLATED STORMS OVER CENTRAL
ALABAMA AT THIS TIME...BUT COULD SEE A LITTLE MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR
ACTIVITY AS THE SHORTWAVE PROGRESSES OVERNIGHT. WILL CONTINUE
WITH 30/20 WEST TO EAST POPS. RAIN CHANCES STILL LOOK BETTER
DURING THE DAY ON SATURDAY AS THIS FIRST SHORTWAVE ENHANCES THE
MAIN UPPER TROUGH THAT MOVES FROM THE NORTHWEST. ONLY MINOR
CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE LOWS IN THE NORTHEAST SINCE WE SHOULD BE
ONLY SLOWLY COOL OVERNIGHT DUE TO THE EXTENSIVE CLOUD SHIELD
ASSOCIATED WITH THE WAVE. UPDATE ALREADY OUT.
