.DISCUSSION...

The cold front has just about moved through the forecast area most
observations sites are now reporting NW winds. Widespread cloud
cover extends well behind the boundary. Low-level moisture will
continue to be plentiful with patchy drizzle continuing throughout
much of the night in SW VA and NE TN. For the update, increased
cloud cover during the overnight hours based on the current
satellite trends and made some minor changes to the ongoing
temperature and dewpoint grids. Northwest winds will remain
elevated during the overnight hours and this should prevent any
widespread fog formation but did add some patchy fog in SW VA and
NE TN with the lower dewpoint depressions.
