FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR MIDDLE TENNESSEE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NASHVILLE TN
538 AM CDT SUN JUN 26 2016

.DISCUSSION...
UPPER HIGH WILL CONTROL THE WEATHER PATTERN FOR 1 MORE DAY BEFORE
IT SHIFTS WESTWARD. JUST ENOUGH MOISTURE WILL RESIDE BENEATH THE
RIDGE TODAY SO THAT A 20 TO 30 PERCENT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON AND
EVENING SHOWERS AND TSTMS IS IN THE FORECAST. RAIN CHANCES WILL
INCREASE MONDAY AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY WORKS ACROSS THE AREA.

IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST...A DRY NORTHWESTERLY FLOW REGIME WILL
MARKEDLY REDUCE THE CONVECTIVE POTENTIAL FOR MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.
HOWEVER...AS A TROUGH AXIS SWINGS ACROSS THE EASTERN U.S. LATE IN
THE WEEK...SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL RETURN.
