000 FXUS64 KMRX 240706 AFDMRX AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORRISTOWN TN 306 AM EDT FRI OCT 24 2014 .SHORT TERM (TODAY AND TONIGHT)...
-- Changed Discussion --
HIGH CLOUDS ARE STREAMING OVER THE AREA THIS MORNING IN ASSOCIATION WITH A MID-UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. MOST OF THESE CLOUDS SHOULD BE EAST OF OUR AREA BY THE AFTERNOON...LEAVING MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES FOR MOST OF THE AREA. A VORT MAX MOVING ACROSS NORTHERN SECTIONS MAY KEEP SOME CLOUDS OVER THAT AREA. A WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE...WITH HIGHS IN THE MID 60S NORTH TO LOWER 70S SOUTH. CLEAR AND CALM CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED TONIGHT WITH A BUILDING RIDGE ALOFT...WITH LOWS IN THER UPPER 30S TO MID 40S. .LONG TERM (SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY)... GONNA BE GETTING WARM EARLY NEXT WEEK AS IMPRESSIVE UPPER RIDGING BUILDS OVER THE AREA. HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SEE 80 DEGREES SUNDAY AND MONDAY ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTHERN TN VALLEY. RIDGE PATTERN WILL SHIFT EASTWARD...ALLOWING SHORTWAVE TO SPREAD PRECIP OVER THE AREA DURING MIDWEEK. BUT THIS COULD BE A WAIT-AND-SEE KIND OF PATTERN CHANGE GIVEN THE ADVERTISED STRENGTH OF THE EARLY WEEK RIDGING...IT MAY PERSIST A LITTLE LONGER AND HOLD OFF THE PRECIP CHANCES LIKEWISE. SO...WHILE CHANCE-CATEGORY POPS WILL FILL THE FORECAST FROM TUESDAY NIGHT UNTIL THURSDAY... EXPECT SOME REFINEMENT OF THAT FORECAST OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
