000 FXUS64 KMRX 071631 AAA AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Morristown TN 1131 AM EST Thu Dec 7 2017 .DISCUSSION...
-- Changed Discussion --
No changes are needed to the forecast today. A mid/upper level SW flow and jet stream seen in WV imagery will continue to supply mid/upper level moisture and scattered to broken cloud cover today. Virga may occur over southern sections but precip at the surface will stay well south across AL/GA/SC. A cold front is loacted across central KY/Middle TN, identified by a wind shift and dewpoint gradient, but it will have little impact on the weather as it moves through later today. The mix of sun and clouds today will make for a tricky temperature forecast, but the current highs in the mid/upper 40s seem to be on track so far.
