.DISCUSSION...
MOISTURE ADVECTION AND DOWNSLOPE WINDS ARE DUELING FOR TERRITORY
ACROSS NE TN AND THE FOOTHILLS THIS MORNING. THE MOISTURE ADVECTION
APPEARS TO HAVE THE UPPER HAND AS CLOUDS ARE SLOWLY ADVANCING
EASTWARD...AND THE RAP SHOWS 925 MB WINDS THAT ARE ONLY 15 KTS.
HOWEVER...IT IS ENOUGH TO PROVIDE PLENTY OF SUNSHINE IN THE LEE OF
THE MOUNTAINS...ALLOW TEMPS TO REACH THE LOWER 50S ALREADY. WILL
UPDATE TO ADJUST TEMPERATUERS IN THIS AREA. UPSTREAM RADAR SHOWS
QUITE A BIT OF RAIN OVER MIDDLE TN...AND WHILE IT APPEARS THAT MUCH
OF IT IS NOT REACHING THE GROUND AT THE MOMENT...IT SHOULD MOVE
INTO OUR PLATEAU COUNTIES THIS AFTERNOON TO PRODUCE SOME LIGHT QPF.
WILL UPDATE POPS TO RAISE POPS IN THIS AREA FOR THE AFTERNOON...AND
LOWER POPS IN EASTERN SECTIONS.
