000 FXUS64 KMRX 061147 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 647 AM EST Tue Dec 6 2016 .AVIATION...Strong low pressure system will be driving northeast across the region through early afternoon with very low flight conditions at CHA and TYS through mid day and moving into the TRI vicinity by mid morning and continuing into the later afternoon hours. Somewhat drier air and some downsloping westerly flow across the Cumberland Plateau should allow for improvement at those farther southwest terminals during the afternoon. TRI may not see a great deal of improvement with cold air advection filling in behind the system this evening. Would expect an mvfr ceiling to eventually develop at each terminal tonight with a decent amount of low level moisture filtering in from the northwest. && .MRX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... NC...None. TN...Wind Advisory until 4 PM EST this afternoon for Blount Smoky Mountains-Cocke Smoky Mountains-Johnson-Sevier Smoky Mountains-Southeast Carter-Southeast Greene-Southeast Monroe-Unicoi. Flash Flood Watch until 4 PM EST this afternoon for North Sevier- Sevier Smoky Mountains. VA...None. && $$
