Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Morristown TN
240 AM EDT FRI MAY 27 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)...Summerlike pattern for the short
term. NAM looks a bit overdone with instability for today...but
still looks like enough convective energy to support scattered
convection for much of the area especially after noon. Will confine
slight chance PoPs to the southern valley...with chance PoPs
elsewhere for today. After any evening showers and thunderstorms
diminish...should be dry for remainder of tonight. MAV temps
generally look reasonable so will stay close.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday Through Thursday)...
Region will generally be under the influence of the western side of
the Bermuda High. Thus warm and humid conditions will prevail
through the extended period, with daily rounds of primarily
diurnal convection. The full impact of the tropical low remains to
be seen, but model solutions continue to lean toward minimal
contribution from it to the extant warm and muggy regime.
