.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 1011 AM CDT FRI JUL 31 2015/
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL WX CONDITIONS PREVAIL ACROSS THE CNTRL TN VALLEY
FOR THIS LATE FRI MORNING...WHICH IS QUITE A DEVIATION COMPARED TO
THE PAST FEW DAYS. A STRONG RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE DRAPED ACROSS THE
MIDWEST STATES INTO THE OH VALLEY REGION CONTINUES TO BUILD SWD...AS
THE COLD FRONT WHICH CROSSED THE AREA YESTERDAY SETTLES INTO THE NRN
GULF. TEMP TRENDS THUS FAR HAVE CLIMBED BARELY INTO THE LOWER 80S
RANGE FOR MANY AREAS...WITH DEW PTS MORE IN THE LOWER 60S. WITH AN
UPPER RIDGE FEATURE CENTERED OVER THE SRN PLAINS DRIFTING EWD...ALL
OF THIS IS TRANSLATING INTO SUNNY SKIES AND QUIET CONDITIONS FOR THE
LOCAL AREA. AFTERNOON HIGHS FOR MOST AREAS LOOK TO CLIMB NEAR/JUST
ABOVE THE 90F...WHICH IS FAIRLY NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF THE YR...AND
IS ALSO A NICE REPRIEVE FROM THE 100+F HEAT INDICES WHICH IMPACTED
THE REGION OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS. WITH THIS SAID...THE EARLY
MORNING FORECAST PACKAGE LOOKS TO BE VERY REASONABLE...AND NO CHANGES
ARE NEEDED ATTM.
