.DISCUSSION...
Upper level ridge firmly entrenched over East Tennessee and North
Carolina will remain in place over the next several days. At the
surface, ridge of high pressure extending SW across Virginia into
East Tennessee has brought light return flow to the area. With it,
dewpoints have climbed back into the lower 70s across much of the
region this evening. Expect quiet conditions for the overnight
with some isolated pockets of fog in areas that may have recieved a
passing shower earlier today. For tomorrow, expect hot and humid
with heat indices approaching 100 degrees F in parts of the central
and southern Tennessee Valley. Any precipitiation should be isolated
to widely scattered at best, with greatest chances found over
higher terrain. Brought hourly temps in line with latest
observations. Otherwise forecast forecast looks good.
