Updated to include the 06z aviation discussion.


.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 858 PM CDT Fri Oct 21 2016/

DISCUSSION...Surface analysis this evening places a ridge of high
pressure over the Mississippi Valley. This is resulting in mostly
clear to clear skies across the Mid-South. As of 8 pm CDT,
temperatures across the forecast area are in the 50s across many
locations except across West Tennessee near the Tennessee River
where temperatures have already fallen back into the middle 40s.
Current frost advisory headlines seem reasonable given current
trends as overnight temperatures across this area are anticipated
to fall back into the middle 30s. No updates planned at this


PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 343 PM CDT Fri Oct 21 2016/


High pressure will settle over the Mid-South tonight. The
combination of clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures
to plummet this evening. Expect lows to drop into the mid 30s
across areas of West Tennessee near the Tennessee River. As a
result, will issue a frost advisory for late tonight. Elsewhere,
lows will be in the upper 30s to mid 40s.

The pleasant autumn weather will continue into Saturday as the
high remains over the region. Highs will be in the mid 60s to
around 70 degrees. By Sunday, an upper ridge will begin to build
over the Mid-South and remain in place into the early part of
next week. As a result, a warming trend will occur with highs will
return to the 70s.

The next cold front will move into the area Wednesday Night. Only
small chances for showers will occur over mainly northern
locations of the CWA.
