290 FXUS64 KMRX 010652 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 252 AM EDT WED JUN 1 2016 .SHORT TERM (Today and Tonight)...
-- Changed Discussion --
Quite warm again today. Ridge will be slowly weakening and thus moisture flow will increase into the area the next few days. We may see a little more convection this afternoon/evening than we saw Tuesday but most pops in the 20-30 pct range. .LONG TERM (Thursday through Tuesday)...Models in decent agreement for the most part...although some differences in the details. Forecast confidence is about average for this time of year. A weak cold front will move into the area on Thursday before stalling out. Another...stronger cold front will move in on Sunday...exiting Sunday night. Looks like there will be quite a few showers and thunderstorms around for the Thursday through Sunday period...with the most coverage likely to be on Thursday and especially Sunday. An area of surface high pressure is forecast to build in for the early part of next week...and mainly dry conditions are expected.
