-- Changed Discussion --
As East coast upper low slowly moves away...high pressure will increasingly take hold and provide the area with a warm-up. Expect dry conditions to also prevail tonight through midday Wednesday, with only isolated higher terrain showers or thunderstorms expected for Wed afternoon. Patchy fog is expected over far northeast TN and southwest VA Tuesday morning. .LONG TERM (Wednesday Night through Monday)... A long wave ridge will slowly move eastward starting this period. At the surface a ridge off the eastern coast as well as a deepening low over northwestern Kansas will allow southerly flow to commence over the region. Therefore higher relative humidities and warmer temperature can be expected along with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon hours is favored and some of these may linger past sunset from Thursday through the entire holiday weekend. The 12z run of the GFS is still holding onto an easterly wave moving into SC/NC area Sunday night. Something to continue to watch over the next several days. In terms of temperatures daytime highs will generally be in the 80s with lows dropping into the 60s. Overall most locations will see temperatures above normal for minimums and maximums.
