.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 303 AM CDT THU JUL 30 2015/

DISCUSSION...

A VERY WELCOMED CHANGE IS IN STORE LATER TODAY FOR MIDDLE TENNESSEE
IN THE FORM OF DRIER AIR AND MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURES.  IN
FACT...THESE CHANGES WILL BE IN PLACE FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS.

EVIDENT IN THE SURFACE WIND FIELDS...A WEAK FRONTAL SYSTEM THAT
HELPED TO SPARK ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS YESTERDAY AFTERNOON AND
LAST EVENING HAS WORKED ITS WAY ALMOST ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE
STATE ALREADY. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE IS GOING TO HANG ON FOR SEVERAL
MORE HOURS HOWEVER...BUT THE DRY AIR ISN`T FAR AWAY. AS THAT DRY
AIR FILTERS IN...SKIES WILL CLEAR OUT AND HELP TEMPERATURES TO
CLIMB INTO THE LOW 80S TO AROUND 90...BUT DEW POINTS IN THE LOW TO
MIDDLE 60S BY MID-AFTERNOON WILL MAKE FOR MUCH MORE BREATHABLE
AIR. HECK...YOU MAY EVEN BE ABLE TO TURN OFF THE A/C AND OPEN UP
THE WINDOWS TONIGHT AND TOMORROW NIGHT!

WHILE AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL CLIMB A DEGREE OR TWO EACH DAY...THE
DRIER AIR WILL STICK AROUND THROUGH THE WEEKEND MAKING FOR A GREAT
WEEKEND AHEAD.

A RATHER STAGNANT PATTERN IS IN STORE THROUGH NEXT WEEK. NO
RETURN WILL KEEP LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE SOUTH OF TN AND TEMPERATURES
SHOULD REMAIN RIGHT AROUND NORMAL. WHILE A VERY WEAK FRONT MIGHT
DROP IN FROM THE NORTH TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY NEXT WEEK...THERE
ISN`T REALLY ANY DISCERNIBLE QPF ASSOCIATED WITH IT. OUR NEXT
CHANCE OF ANY SIGNIFICANT RAIN MAY NOT COME UNTIL END OF NEXT
WEEK.
