Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Morristown TN
1012 PM EST Wed Jan 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
No major adjustments are needed to the forecast this evening.
Ridging from 850 to 300 mb will be moving east of the Appalachians
tonight, with a SW flow of positive theta-e advection and
isentropic lift developing late tonight. As reflected in the going
forecast, rain showers over MS are moving NE and are projected to
reach our area between 09-12Z. The HRRR and RAP appear to have a
good handle on this precip. Current obs match up pretty well with
the forecast, and only a few slight tweaks to temperature and sky
grids will be made.
