-- Changed Discussion --
East TN will be between weather systems today. Rain has exited the area but low clouds remain trapped under a strong inversion. Some improvement to vis and cigs may come this afternoon as drier air aloft increases and erodes the clouds with mixing. But rain will begin to spread back into the area from the south late this afternoon, bringing MVFR conditions to CHA around 22z, around 00z at TYS, and 03z at TRI. A period of IFR is likely tonight as the rain intensifies. Winds aloft increase tonight, which may create some LLWS at CHA and TYS. With the strengthening downslope winds, cigs are expected to rise late in the period at TYS and TRI.
