Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Huntsville AL 850 PM CDT Wed Oct 4 2023


Issued at 850 PM CDT Wed Oct 4 2023

A cold front currently stretching from NE to SW from Michigan to Oklahoma is prompting continual high cirrus clouds over much of the area. With the cold front slatted to continue moving east overnight, clouds are expected to linger which should help to keep morning lows in the low to mid 60s, with elevated areas potentially getting into the high 50s. Despite increased cloud cover, rain chances remain near 0 overnight with the best chances still tomorrow afternoon.

(Thursday through Saturday)
Issued at 254 PM CDT Wed Oct 4 2023

As of today (10/4) we've gone 18 days without measurable rainfall and parts of our forecast area have fallen into low end drought conditions. As the previously mentioned trough swings from the Plains into the Midwest, it will push a cold front into the MS Valley on Thursday and into the TN Valley on Friday. This will bring long awaited showers and a few thunderstorms to the TN Valley mainly Thursday evening into Friday ahead of and along the cold front. Even though the NBM is wanting to bring in higher POPs for this forecast package, with model trends being less optimistic, opted to keep POPs below 60 for Thursday night and Friday. Also slowed down the arrival of the onset of precip Thursday afternoon. The QPF values are still low with Storm Total's only around 0.10".

Enjoy the temperatures the rest of this work week before we take a roller coaster dive this weekend. On Thursday, there will be highs in the lower 80s and lows in the lower 60s. Friday there will be highs in the upper 70s but breezy northwesterly winds will tank lows ~15 degrees lower than Thursday night into the upper 40s. Saturday will have plenty of sunshine, however the breezy northwesterly winds will still be around, keeping daytime highs in the low/mid 60s.

(Saturday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 135 AM CDT Wed Oct 4 2023

High pressure out of the Plains states will build into the SE region during the second half of the weekend period. The broad upper trough pattern will also rotate into the Great Lakes/NE regions, thereby enabling a NW flow regime over the SE states.
This should translate into unseasonably cool/dry wx conditions prevailing thru Sun, with highs remaining in the mid/upper 60s.
Lows Sat/Sun nights also look to drop into the upper 30s/lower 40s for most spots. Afternoon temps will then climb back into the 70s Mon/Tue, as high pressure at the sfc begins to move east of the area. Lows Mon night also look to trend more in the mid 50s/near 60F for most locations.

(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 611 PM CDT Wed Oct 4 2023

VFR conditions will persist through the first half of the TAF period. Overcast conditions will continue tonight through tomorrow with a lower cloud deck coming in around 16z tomorrow in associations with higher rain chances towards the end of the TAF period. No rain or thunder was included in the TAF yet due to low confidence however the potential for MVFR and rain/thunder in the TAF is possible in subsequential forecasts.
