(Thursday Night through Tuesday) Issued at 201 PM EDT Tue Jun 28 2016 Forecast period to begin with next chance of precip. Closed low will drop southward into Ontario as short wave energy rounds the base of the upper trof and moves across the great lakes region. Chances for precip will be reduced as gulf moisture remains cut off from this system with previous frontal boundary stalled along the southern US. Weak surface cold front will then move through Friday morning as another cool Canadian high pressure system builds into the region which will set the stage for a very pleasant holiday weekend. High temps will start at 75-80F on Friday and Saturday then gradually moderate back into the low to mid 80s by the 4th. Dewpoints expected to remain in the 50s through the holiday weekend providing low humidity and seasonably cool overnight lows generally 55-60F. Weak waves moving along stalled frontal boundary in the Tennessee valley will generate periods of showers and thunderstorms primarily south of our area...but outlier solns that bring chances further north apparently having undue influence on the blend resulting in slight chances in our southern CWA for Sunday night and Monday timeframe.
