460 FXUS64 KMRX 220206 AAB AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Morristown TN 906 PM EST Tue Feb 21 2017 .DISCUSSION... Light rain showers will continue to overspread the region late this evening as an upper-level low tracks south of the region along the Gulf Coast. These showers will expand in coverage after midnight thanks to isentropic lift, though they will still generally remain light in nature. Total QPF amounts between 0.1 to 0.25 inches will be common across the region through 12z. The combination of the cloud cover and precipitation will keep low temperatures quite mild overnight -- generally in the low to mid 50s. Despite the precipitation, patchy fog is expected to develop along the mountains after midnight and will be possible across the entire region early Wednesday morning due to the moist boundary layer conditions. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
