LEAD SHORTWAVE MAKING PROGRESS INTO THE WESTERN HALF OF THE VIEWING AREA THIS MORNING. RADAR REFLECTIVITY NOT REAL IMPRESSIVE AND SURFACE OBS REVEAL THAT THE RAIN IS QUITE LIGHT. LIFT WITH THIS INITIAL FEATURE IS RATHER WEAK. THE HEALTHY SOUTHERLY 85H FLOW ACROSS THE TERRAIN COULD REDUCE THE PRECIPITATION ACROSS NORTHEAST TENNESSEE TO JUST A FEW DROPS OF RAIN AS THE WAVE WORKS EAST. THE NAM LOOKS LIKE IT HAS A PRETTY DECENT GRASP OF THE SITUATION WITH THE WEAK AFTERNOON SHORTWAVE FOLLOWED BY A BETTER CHANCE OF RAIN IN SHOWERS WITH SOME THUNDER AHEAD OF THE STRONG COLD FRONT. HOWEVER...THIS PRECIP DOESN`T ENTER THE WESTERN HORIZON UNTIL CLOSE TO 00Z TUESDAY. CURRENT POPS IN THE GRIDS ARE ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD WITH THE DECREASING TREND NORTHEASTERN SECTIONS OF THE VIEWING AREA WITH THE MAIN EVENT AROUND 00Z TUESDAY AND LATER. NOT REAL CONFIDENT IN THE ATMOSPHERE`S ABILITY TO PRODUCE CONVECTION ACROSS SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA AND NORTHEAST TENNESSEE SO WILL REMOVE THIS WORDING HERE. TEMPERATURE FORECAST WILL BE DIFFICULT WITH TEMPERATURES QUITE MILD THIS MORNING BUT THE MID DECK WILL KEEP SUNSHINE AT BAY FOR A FEW HOURS THIS MORNING WEST BEFORE SOME BREAKS APPEAR WHILE THE EASTERN HALF WILL KEEP A MID DECK FOR A LITTLE WHILE LONGER INTO THE AFTERNOON.
