.DISCUSSION...
WENT WITH A BLEND OF NAM/GFS FOR THIS FCST PACKAGE. OVERALL MADE
ONLY MINOR CHANGES TO THE PREVIOUS FCST. OTHERWISE TEMPS WERE ARND
90 WITH DEWPOINTS NEAR 70 ACROSS THE TN VALLEY.

TONIGHT...RADAR WAS SHOWING A FEW ISOLATED SHRA OVER NW GA MOVING NE
PROBABLY ASSOCIATED WITH AN OLD BOUNDARY EXTENDING FROM NRN GA THRU
SRN AL. FOR NOW WILL NOT INCLUDE ANY PCPN AFTER 00Z TONIGHT DUE TO
LACK OF ANY GOOD TRIGGERS AND LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING. WILL KEEP
PATCHY FOG BUT COVERAGE WILL DEPEND ON CLOUD COVER.

TUESDAY A WEAK TROF/CDFNT WILL APPROACH THE CWA INCREASING THE CHC
OF SCT SHRA/TSRA. GFS HINTS THAT THE CDFNT WILL PROBABLY WASH OUT
JUST NORTH OF THE TN VALLEY.

WEDNESDAY THRU FRIDAY...THE JET STREAM WILL BE OVER THE NRN TIER OF
STATES WITH A DIRTY HIGH ACROSS MOST OF THE SERN US. WILL KEEP A LOW
POP IN FOR MAINLY AFTN/EVENING SHRA/TSRA.

BY SATURDAY MRNG A CDFNT WILL EXTEND FROM THE GREAT LAKES THRU MO
AND INTO NRN TX. GFS HAS THE CDFNT MOVING ACROSS THE CWA BY SATURDAY
NIGHT/SUNDAY MRNG. PCPN SHOULD BEGIN TO TAPER OFF SUNDAY AFTN/NIGHT
ALONG WITH A LITTLE LESS HUMID CONDITIONS. TEMPS WILL NOT COOL OFF
THAT MUCH WITH HIGHS ARND 90 AND LOWS NEAR 70...A LITTLE ABOVE
NORMAL.

MONDAY...RETURN FLOW WILL LIKELY SETUP ALONG THE WEST SIDE OF THE
UPPER HIGH...ALONG WITH MORE SCT SHRA/TSRA.

IN A NUT SHELL IT LOOKS LIKE A LATE SUMMER PATTERN WITH AFTN/EVENING
SHRA/TSRA AND NEAR NORMAL TEMPS FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS.
