000 FXUS64 KMRX 300136 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 936 PM EDT FRI JUL 29 2016 .DISCUSSION... Scattered showers and storms have moved across most of the northern and central sections of the forecast area since mid afternoon and were slowly moving across southeast Tennessee and into southwest North Carolina at sunset. Locally heavy rainfall of over one inch per hour was falling in that area. Another complex of showers and storms was moving into southern middle Tennessee and approaching the southern Plateau counties. Expect rain chances to drop lower after midnight with fog forming where areas had rain so added patchy fog. Had to lower hourly temperatures in several places due to rain cooled air mass from storms earlier. Updated forecast sent. && .AVIATION... For earlier TAF issuance kept VCTS remarks for a couple hours at all sites due to lingering thunderstorm activity. Also added some local MVFR fog and ceilings for the early morning hours. TRI may drop to even IFR fog and ceiling late due to earlier rains. Better chance of storms at TRI and TYS so have vicinity remarks saturday afternoon at those sites. && .MRX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... NC...None. TN...None. VA...None. && $$ TD
