Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Memphis TN
1027 PM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017


Updated to reduce overnight cloud cover.



High pressure continues to build into the Mid South this evening
with skies rapidly clearing through midnight. Most locations will
be clear and cool after midnight with low temperatures dropping
into the upper 50s north to the upper 60s south, with seasonably
low humidity. Updates have been sent and no additional changes
will be required tonight.



.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 346 PM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017/

A cold front has pushed into central Mississippi this afternoon
while a relatively drier north to northeast wind prevails north of
the boundary over the forecast area. Expect the slightly cooler
and drier weather to continue through Friday.

Tropical Depression Harvey in the western Gulf will intensify and
track into Texas by Saturday and remain near east Texas through
early next week. There is a lot of uncertainty of Harvey beyond
early next week, but current model runs track the remnants of it
over the Midsouth toward the middle to end of next week. Given
the uncertainty of track and timing, will keep a chance of showers
and thunderstorms in the extended period and elevate the chances
of rain and wind where confidence increases with time.



00z TAF Cycle

VFR conditions are ongoing and expected to persist throughout the
period. Scattered skies will thin out after sunset, with clear
skies likely persisting late tonight and tomorrow with surface
high pressure dominant. Winds from the north near 10 kts this
evening will subside slightly tonight before again becoming 7-10
kts from the north by late morning. Some TEMPO MVFR visibility
will be possible at KMKL and KTUP as fog development is likely.
