some locations in northeast Alabama this morning saw dense fog while
patchy fog lingered through the rest of the valley locations. The
dense fog advisory was allowed to expire for Jackson and Marshall
counties at 9am this morning.

High pressure is spread across the southeast and will allow for a dry
forecast today. Temperatures will be a little bit warmer today reaching
towards 90 and just above...normal for this time of year...especially
with less cloud cover today than we had yesterday. Adjusted the
hourlys...especially the winds...for trends today but no major
changes were made in the forecast package.
