.DISCUSSION...

Upper ridge will continue to build in this direction out of the
southern plains for the remainder of this week and over the
weekend keeping dry weather across our area as carolina system
continues to waddle around before finally getting picked up by
northeast, mid Atlantic upper trough that develops late in the
work week and lifts it out early this weekend. Upper ridge
dominates Middle Tennessee weather right through the weekend and
into at least the first of next week and this means above normal
temperatures during this period.

this month with Clarksville averaging 3.4 degrees above normal and
Crossville 3.7 degrees above normal. Rainfall at Nashville has
