.PREV DISCUSSION.../ISSUED 212 PM CDT SUN AUG 2 2015/

DISCUSSION...SURFACE RIDGE HAS FINALLY EDGED INTO NW MIDDLE
TENNESSEE THIS AFTERNOON WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND DEWPOINTS
RANGING FROM THE MID 50`S TO LOWER 60`S. LOOK FOR THE RIDGE TO
SLIP SOUTH OF THE MID STATE OVERNIGHT, ALLOWING FOR SLIGHTLY
WARMER TEMPERATURES STARTING ON MONDAY AND INCREASING DEW POINTS.
BY TUESDAY EVENING, A SOUTHWARD-MOVING QUASI-STATIONARY FRONT WILL
BEGIN TO EDGE INTO MIDDLE TENNESSEE, WITH SCATTERED POP`S AREA-
WIDE BY WEDNESDAY. BOTH THE GFS AND ECMWF SHOW A SHORTWAVE PASSAGE
ON THURSDAY AND SURFACE FROPA ON FRIDAY, WITH POP`S THEN
DIMINISHING AS WE HEAD INTO THE WEEKEND. MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES
ARE IN STORE STARTING ON FRIDAY AND LASTING THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
AT THIS TIME, THERE ARE NO CONCERNS ABOUT HIGH HEAT INDICES DURING
THE NEXT 7 DAYS AND LITTLE CHANCE OF WIDESPREAD SEVERE STORMS.
