000 FXUS64 KMRX 011518 AAB AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Morristown TN 1018 AM EST Thu Dec 1 2016 .DISCUSSION... After a busy start to the week, quiet weather has settled into the eastern Tennessee Valley and Southern Appalachian region. A surface ridge of high pressure is promoting tranquil weather as a cool/stable air mass builds in. Other than some low clouds this morning across far NE TN and SW VA, sunny to mostly sunny conditions and temperatures in the low to mid 50s are expected by the afternoon. RH values will bottom out in the 50-60% range this afternoon, but some 10-15 mph SW winds are a concern in areas that still have hot spots from wildfires along the Great Smoky Mountains. These winds will die down after sunset as the noctural boundary layer sets in and winds decouple. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
