.DISCUSSION...
AS OF 245 PM TEMPS WERE IN THE LOW/MID 80S UNDER MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES.
WE HAD TWO REPORTS OF WIND DAMAGE OVER DEKALB COUNTY AND 1.5 INCH
HAIL IN CULLMAN COUNTY...EARLIER TODAY.

OTHERWISE SCATTERED SHRA/TSRA THAT MOVED ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE TN
VALLEY THIS MRNG/AFTN...HAVE MOVED EAST OF THE AREA. STILL COULD SEE
A FEW MORE SHRA/TSRA LATER THIS AFTN AND TONIGHT BUT COVERAGE SHOULD
ONLY BE ISOLATED. SHRA/TSRA MAY ACTUALLY TAPER OFF/END LATER THIS
EVENING BUT NAM SHOWS THAT ANOTHER DISTURBANCE(NOW OVER PORTIONS OF
THE MIDWEST)MAY KICK OFF SOME ISOLATED SHRA/TSRA AFTER MIDNIGHT. THUS
WILL BROADBRUSH TONIGHT WITH A 20 POP ACROSS THE CWA.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY...THIS PERIOD LOOKS TO BE THE BEST CHC OF
SHRA/TSRA AS SEVERAL SHORT WAVES/MCS WILL AFFECT THE TN VALLEY. ALSO
A FEW STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH MAINLY DAMAGING
WINDS. WITH PW`S ARND 1.80 INCH LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN/WET MICROBURST
WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE. WET BULB ZERO WILL RISE TO ARND 12000 FT BY
WEDNESDAY AFTN THUS NOT EXPECTING WIDESPREAD SEVERE HAIL.

FRIDAY THRU SUNDAY...MORE SHRA/TSRA WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE TN
VALLEY...HOWEVER NW FLOW WILL SLOWLY TRANSITION TO MORE OF A SW
UPPER FLOW. BY MONDAY/TUESDAY THE UPPER HIGH IS PROGGED TO BUILD
FURTHER EAST. THIS COULD LOWER THE CHC OF PCPN ACROSS THE CWA AND
INCREASE TEMPS A LITTLE.
