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.
