AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORRISTOWN TN
956 AM EDT SAT SEP 5 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A MOSTLY CLEAR SKY IS PREVAILING THIS MORNING WITH A SURFACE HIGH
STILL ACROSS MIDDLE/EAST TENNESSEE. AMPLE SUNSHINE WILL CONTINUE
THROUGHOUT THE MORNING...ALLOWING GOOD HEATING TO OCCUR...BEFORE
CLOUDS INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON. A WEAK UPPER-LEVEL DISTURBANCE
LOOKS TO NOSE ITS WAY TOWARD THE EASTERN MOUNTAIN ZONES THIS
AFTERNOON...PROMOTING AN EASTERLY MOIST ATLANTIC FETCH. THIS
SHOULD RESULT IN SOME MORE CLOUD COVER AND SCATTERED CONVECTION IN
THE FORM OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. GIVEN THE WEAK SHEAR...MOST
OF THIS ACTIVITY WILL BE DISORGANIZED...BUT A SOME LOCALLY HEAVY
DOWNPOURS WILL BE POSSIBLE UNDERNEATH THESE SHOWERS AND STORMS.
HIGHS WILL BE A DEGREE OR TWO COOLER...BUT SHOULD STILL REACH THE
UPPER 80S TO LOWER 90S OVER MUCH OF THE VALLEY.
