Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Huntsville Alabama
904 PM CST Monday Jan 26 2015

Update...
trimmed back the area of flurries...otherwise rest of forecast looks on
track.

&&

Discussion...
the weak disturbance that brought a couple of reports of sleet over
Jackson County earlier this evening...has moved east of the County Warning Area.
Thought about removing all mention of flurries but new NAM data
hints that we may get clipped by another weak disturbance overnight.
This would be in our extreme northestern zones of Marshall/DeKalb/Jackson
counties and Franklin County Tennessee. Thus will keep flurries in these
counties with no accumulations expected...if we get anything at all.
Otherwise made no changes to the rest of the forecast.

for 00z tafs...wrap around clouds will continue across the taf sites
for much of the forecast period. There is a slight chance of flurries
overnight...but since the coverage/chance is low will not include in
tafs. Otherwise VFR conditions are possible until 04z. Between 04z
and 18z expect MVFR conditions. After 18z mainly VFR conditions are
possible.
