Aviation [00z terminal forecast discussion]...isolated rain showers/thunderstorms and rain
have gradually dissipated over far southwest Alabama and southeast MS
early this evening...and VFR conditions are expected to prevail for
the most part across our area tonight. The exception could be some
patchy MVFR fog late tonight into early Friday morning. Scattered
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain are expected to re-develop late Friday morning into Friday
afternoon...especially across southern portions of the region as
moisture spreads northward from the Gulf. Localized MVFR to IFR
conditions with heavy rain along with gusty winds will be possible
with the stronger storms that develop. /21
