-- Changed Discussion --
The right entrance region of the upper level jet will continue to produce divergence aloft over the region. The upward forcing will also maintain a strong low-level jet with 850mb winds of 40-50kts. The boundary layer jet will also produce good isentropic lift over the area. This lift along with elevated instability above 800mb will produce isolated/scattered thunderstorms. Due to the strong low-level jet, will issue a wind advisory for the Smoky Mountains through mid-morning. Have a good night.
