AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BIRMINGHAM AL
337 PM CDT MON MAY 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...

NO CHANGES TO THE FORECAST THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEK DUE TO AN
INACTIVE LATE SPRING PATTERN ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN CONUS.
CONDITIONS ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA STAY DRY AND WARM...WITH BOTH
HIGHS AND LOWS RUNNING JUST ABOVE NORMAL.

MID LEVEL RIDGING REMAINS DOMINANTS THROUGH THE PERIOD WHILE
SURFACE RIDGING GIVES WAY TO A DISTURBANCE OFF THE EAST COAST THE
SECOND HALF OF THE WORK WEEK. BOTH THESE RESULT IN DRY CONDITIONS
FOR CENTRAL ALABAMA. PATTERN DOES BEGIN TO SHIFT LATE IN THE
FORECAST PERIOD...THE END OF NEXT WEEKEND...WITH RAIN CHANCES
RETURNING.
