12z taf discussion.

Except for a couple of spots with MVFR fog for an hour or so
possible...VFR conditions are expected across the c Alabama tafs.
Although there is a chance for some isolated heat induced convection
this afternoon across the far eastern sections (ie...anb)
probability is low and not high enough to mention in taf. Even
less chance for fog tonight with even less boundary layer moisture
expected to work with tonight and very low rain chances overall.
Overall...this package light west/northwest winds and fair
weather cumulus/maybe some towering cumulus in the east in the
afternoon.
