000 FXUS64 KMRX 280636 CCA AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 234 AM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016 .SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)...Today looks a bit less active for convection than yesterday as boundary layer moisture should be more limited. Still expect some convection to develop especially higher terrain...and will carry low PoPs all areas. For tonight there is some question about how much moisture from the atlantic tropical system will get pulled northwest into our area...with the GFS more bullish than the NAM. For now will lean toward the drier NAM but will beef up clouds especially north...and will carry slight chance PoPs all areas for the entire night. .LONG TERM...(Sunday Through Friday)... Warm and humid conditions will prevail. We will continue to find ourselves on the western extent of the Bermuda High through most of the new week until a low pressure trough brings slightly cooler weather late in the week...although humidity will remain even then. Impacts of the tropical system appear to be minimal for our area as the brunt of the system will impact the coastal Carolinas. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
