-- Changed Discussion --
Strong fronto-genetic forcing along boundary has moved east of the area with rain ending. A good deal of low clouds remain...but will dissipate later today. Made some minor changes to clouds...rain chances...and temperatures for today. Main concern is re-development of strong 850mb jet tonight and Wednesday morning. A 850mb jet of 50-60kts will move across the region. have issued a high wind watch for the Smoky Mountains. This is not a mountain wave high wind event...so winds across the Gatlinburg area will not be as strong...generally 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph possible over the higher locations. Latest NAM is showing a later start to the convection. Will see if the GFS agrees or not.
