000 FXUS64 KMRX 271442 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 1042 AM EDT TUE SEP 27 2016 .DISCUSSION...Current forecast on track this morning. Surface obs show the front just on the other side of the Appalachians, which is where it will reside for most of the day. Clearing has begun a little quicker than anticipated as evident by visible satellite imagery. Areas in the clear stretch from Morgan County up through Wise County VA in a southwest to northeast fashion. This clearing line will continue to gradually push east southeast through the day. Most of the central valley should be cloud free by early afternoon. Our far eastern areas will hang on to clouds longest due to some low level moisture pooling up against the foothills. Leaving slight chance pop in for portions of the mountains due to front still in the vicinity. No major updates to forecast, mainly just tweaking timing of clearing for this afternoon. Will send out new zones. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
