AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NASHVILLE TN
338 PM CDT THU OCT 23 2014

.SHORT TERM...A SHIELD OF HIGH CLOUDS, ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER
LEVEL SHORTWAVE, WILL CONTINUE TO SWEEP IN ACROSS THE MID STATE
THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING BUT WILL LIKELY BE EAST OF OUR AREA BY
SUNRISE FRIDAY. TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON HAVE BEEN SEASONABLY
COOL, TOPPING OUT MAINLY IN THE 60S. EXPECT HIGH CLOUDS TO
PUT A BIT OF A DIMMER ON OUR PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE LATE TODAY.

EXPECT A DRY COLD FRONT TO CROSS THE AREA ON SATURDAY, FOLLOWED
BY A BUILDING UPPER RIDGE AND INCREASINGLY WARM TEMPERATURES
THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. HIGHS IN THE LOWER 80S ARE
FORECAST FOR MANY AREAS WEST OF THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU ON SUNDAY
AND MONDAY, WITH HIGHS STILL AS WARM AS THE UPPER 70S ON TUESDAY,
IN ADVANCE OF A COLD FRONT. LOOKS LIKE A RATHER BREEZY DAY ON TUESDAY
AS WELL, AS SURFACE GRADIENT TIGHTENS OVER OUR AREA. WOULDN`T BE
SURPRISED TO SEE SOME GUSTS UP AROUND 30 MPH OR SO.

.LONG TERM...STILL LOOKS LIKE A COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP INTO OUR
AREA TUESDAY NIGHT, THEN BECOME ORIENTED LARGELY ALONG UPPER FLOW
AS IT PUSHES SOUTHWARD, WITH CLOUDS, SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
LINGERING OVER SOUTHERN AND EASTERN AREAS INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND
MAYBE EVEN INTO THURSDAY. ECMWF IS A BIT MORE PROGRESSIVE WITH
THIS SYSTEM, BUT EVEN THAT MODEL KEEPS A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS IN OUR
SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
