000 FXUS64 KMRX 240125 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 925 PM EDT Sun Apr 23 2017 .DISCUSSION... Only minor changes made to the forecast with this update. Tried to time out PoPs as rain slowly pivots out of the area. Unfortunately, it`s moving very slowly and at least a couple more hours of decent rainfall rates are expected across SW Virginia and NE Tennessee. Elsewhere, lighter showers remain possible overnight. With widespread flooding already occurring, the flash flood watch has been continued until 8AM Eastern/7AM Central for the entire forecast area. For portions of SW Virginia and NE Tennessee where rain will linger the longest, the watch continues until 2PM Eastern/1PM Central. Areas across the south may get enough breaks in the clouds for some patchy fog to form overnight -- there will certainly be more than enough boundary layer moisture to work with. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
