000 FXUS64 KMRX 220658 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 258 AM EDT Thu Jun 22 2017 .SHORT TERM (Today through Friday)...
-- Changed Discussion --
Will quickly transition into a wet weather pattern today as tropical moisture surges north and into the Southern Appalachian Region. As a result...widespread showers and even a few thunderstorms will move across the area for likely to categorical pops through the short term. The main concern will be with the deep...abundant moisture in place...could see occasional moderate to heavy rainfall with rain amounts of 1 to 3 inches possible. This may produce localized flooding and a hydrologic outlook has been issued. Also of concern will the the potential for strong to marginally severe thunderstorms as a 40+ 850MB jet provides focus for convective development. .LONG TERM(Friday Night through Wednesday)...The opening of the extended period...Friday night...will be the most active as the remnants of Cindy crosses the area. Likely to categorical pops are in place, with a threat of locally heavy rains. There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms with the passage of Cindy Friday night, but things should be improving quickly during Saturday, as Cindy`s passage will basically serve as a frontal passage with mild weather in its wake. A second, reinforcing cool front will push through the area early in the new week, providing unseasonably cool temperatures for late June, running 5 to 8 degrees below normal on Monday and Tuesday. Aside from a slight chance of light rain showers from Sunday night through Tuesday, the weather should be generally dry post-Cindy.
