the 16z surface analysis indicated that the warm front was still
south of the forecast area and was extending west to east across
central Alabama. Temperatures across the forecast area were in the upper 40s
in southern middle Tennessee...to the low to middle 50s in northern
Alabama. Expect that the warm front will move northward into the
forecast area by late afternoon and toward 00z. Due to low clouds
and scattered light showers expected...will keep temperatures at or just
slightly above guidance values for afternoon highs. Have lowered
precipitation chances just slightly downward into the chance category. Will
be issuing the update shortly.

for 18z tafs...will continue with IFR/LIFR conditions due to low
ceilings through the forecast periods for hsv and mean sea level. Fog will also
increase with time overnight at both terminals. Have shifted winds
around to the northwest at mean sea level by the end of the forecast period due
to a cold frontal passage and made precipitation predominant.
