Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
1141 PM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017




It was a very nice, clear evening across Mid TN with high pressure
overhead. No major changes were made to the forecast. Patchy fog
was added for the Plateau, but south winds around 5 mph should
keep most areas west of the Plateau from forming dense fog. Still,
a few patches of shallow ground fog can be expected since
the ground remains moist from recent rainfall. Lows tonight will
be in the lower to mid 50s.



Surface pressure gradient will start to slowly tighten over
western Middle Tennessee late tonight, and tighten further over
all of the Mid-State by Wednesday afternoon. This will occur in
advance of a cold front, that is expected to be near the
Tennessee River by the end of the forecast period.

Decoupling of surface winds tonight will be most likely over
eastern areas, where a period of IFR conditions, due to fog, is
expected at CSV (between 09z and 13z). After 13z, south winds will
become gusty, with gusts increasing to between 20kt and 30kt
after 00z/27.

Aside from the period of early morning IFR conditions at CSV,
conditions should be VFR, with cigs at or above 10k feet.

A few thunderstorms could reach the CKV area between 00z and 06z.
