NWS Huntsville Discussion

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
217 PM CST MON FEB 15 2010

.DISCUSSION...NICE CONVECTIVE BANDS SHOWING UP ON AREA RADARS THIS
AFTERNOON AS SNOW SHOWERS BEGIN TO MOVE EWD ACROSS WRN TN/NRN
MS. MUCH OF THIS AXIS IS ASSOCIATED WITH A LINGERING VORT LOBE
ROTATING EWD ACROSS THE LOWER MS VALLEY INTO THE TN VALLEY AREA.
THIS ENERGY IS PREDOM ASSOCIATED WITH THE BROAD UPPER LOW/TROUGH
DRIFTING NEWD ACROSS THE OH VALLEY. AS THIS UPPER LOW CONTINUES TO
LIFT...THE LINGERING VORT MAX SHOULD CONTINUE MOVING EWD THROUGH
THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HRS WITH LIGHT/MOD SNOW
SHOWERS DEVELOPING ACROSS MUCH OF THE CNTRL TN VALLEY. ANY
SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS ARE STILL XPCTED TO REMAIN RIGHT AROUND A
HALF-INCH TO AN INCH...WITH PERHAPS SOME SLIGHTLY HIGHER AMOUNTS
POSSIBLE ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF NE AL AND SRN MID TN.
MOST OF THIS ACTIVITY SHOULD COME TO AN END FROM W TO E THIS
EVENING AS THE VORT AXIS MOVES E AWAY FROM THE AREA.

THE FORECAST OTHERWISE IS A FAIRLY QUIET ONE.
