UNSEASONABLY COOL AIR INTO THE REGION. THIS MORNING WILL BEGIN
WITH TEMPS IN THE UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S...JUST A FEW DEGREES
ABOVE THE RECORD LOWS FOR THE DATE. HIGHS WILL REACH AROUND 80
TODAY WITH A NORTHWEST BREEZE AND COMFORTABLE HUMIDITY LEVELS.
SUNSHINE WILL BE MIXED WITH SCATTERED DIURNAL CUMULUS CLOUDS.

FOR TONIGHT...SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS WILL
SLIDE DOWN TO THE TN VALLEY...BRINGING NEAR- RECORD LOWS BY
SUNRISE WEDNESDAY. WE ARE FORECASTING LOWS AROUND 1 DEGREE ABOVE
THE RECORDS.

SOME PATCHY FOG IS POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT...MAINLY ALONG RIVERS

FOR THURSDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND...A TROUGH WILL SET UP FROM THE
GREAT LAKES...DOWN ACROSS THE TN VALLEY AND TO THE GULF
COAST. MOISTURE WILL INCREASE ACROSS THE REGION RESULTING IN AT
LEAST SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...MAINLY OVER OUR
SOUTHERN AND EASTERN COUNTIES. MUCH DEEPER MOISTURE AND GREATER
POPS WILL RESIDE ALONG THE EAST COAST AND DEEP SOUTH. TEMPERATURES
