Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Birmingham Alabama
1224 PM CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014

for 18z aviation.



Temperatures have warmed rapidly this morning following the very
crisp 30s and 40s that were observed at sunrise. Precipitable waters on the 12z
kbmx sounding came in at 0.19 inches this morning...which
highlights the very dry airmass that is currently in place. The
shortwave moving eastward will only impact central Alabama by
spreading high cirrus clouds over the region this afternoon.
Otherwise...the forecast is currently on track for highs to rise
into the upper 60s north to the lower 70s south. Updates are
already out.



18z taf discussion.

VFR conditions and light winds are expected through the
period...with only some high clouds moving through.
