.AVIATION...THE LOW-LEVEL INVERSION HAS ERODED ACROSS THE TAF SITES
WITH LOW-CLOUDS GENERALLY MIXED OUT. AIR-MASS ACROSS THE AREA VARIES
GREATLY WITH CHA WITH PWS NEAR 1.5 INCHES BY THIS EVENING...WITH TRI
NEAR 1 INCH.

A SHORT-WAVE OVER THE WESTERN TENNESSEE VALLEY WILL MOVE TOWARD THE
AREA THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING. MODELS SHOW A GOOD DEAL OF CONVECTION
DEVELOPING MID-STATE THEN MOVING INTO THE PLATEAU. HOWEVER...DO NOT
THINK CONVECTION WILL MAKE IT TO TYS AND TRI DUE TO THE DRY AIR-
MASS.

MODELS SHOW GRADUALLY INCREASE IN MOISTURE OVER THE TENNESSEE VALLEY
THE NEXT 24 HOURS. INCREASING MID-LEVEL CLOUDS ARE ANTIPATED...BUT
OVERALL...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL.
