AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORRISTOWN TN
1007 AM EDT SUN AUG 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...
ANOTHER QUIET DAY WEATHERWISE ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA...AS A
SURFACE HIGH REMAINS IN PLACE OVERHEAD. THIS WILL CONTINUE TO
PROMOTE A CLEAR TO MOSTLY CLEAR SKY AND DRY CONDITIONS...AS RH
VALUES DIP INTO THE 30 TO 40 PERCENT RANGE THIS AFTERNOON.
THICKNESS VALUES INCREASE...ALONG WITH 850 MB TEMPS...SO HIGHS
TODAY WILL BE A COUPLE OF DEGREES WARMER ON AVERAGE DESPITE THE
LIGHT NORTHWEST FLOW. GENERALLY...READINGS IN THE UPPER 80S ARE
EXPECTED OVER FAR NORTHEAST TN AND SOUTHWEST VA...AND IN THE LOWER
90S IN VALLEY LOCATIONS ELSEWHERE. MODELS DO WANT TO DEVELOP A FEW
ISOLATED SHOWERS ALONG THE NC MOUNTAINS LATE IN THE AFTERNOON.
BUT...GIVEN THE DRY CONDITIONS AND THE NW STEERING FLOW...THINK ANY
LOCALIZED ACTIVITY THAT DOES DEVELOP SHOULD REMAIN EAST OF THE
REGION.
