.DISCUSSION...

Rain chances will diminish after sunset. Rainfall amount and
location will determine fog potential as cloud cover decreases
overnight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible again
on Thursday with rain chances lingering through the night and into
Friday as a weak front moves into the Tennessee Valley. Transport
winds will keep dispersions around the Good category through Friday.


Fog potential over the next few days: Fog development is possible
Thursday morning but will depend on rainfall received Wednesday
afternoon/early evening.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
