Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
1148 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017




The line of storms approaching the Tn River has been moving quite
slowly, but will finally reach our coverage area within the hour.
No severe reports have been received recently, and WFO MEG has
been issuing Significant Wx Advisories. We will continue the sig
wx adv products, with expectation of 40-45 mph gusts. Even with
sub severe winds, a few trees could fall due to saturated soil
from recent rainfall. The storms are expected to weaken as they
move east across the Mid State overnight, producing one quarter
to one half inch of rain.



Broken band of convection just east of the Tennessee River at
04z was moving east at about 25 kts, while individual storms
were moving northeast a bit faster. This band, along with a wider
band of numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms behind it,
will continue pushing east...reaching the CSV area around 10z.

Once the showers and storms arrive, you can expect ceilings to
gradually drop to MVFR, and even some brief periods of IFR in the
heavier showers and storms.

Expect clouds to scatter from west to east after 18z, with a
return to VFR conditions.

South surface winds will be gusty ahead of the cold front tonight,
with some gusts expected to reach 23 to 32 kts. After the front
passes, expect winds to become westerly and less gusty.
