Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
637 PM CDT Thu Oct 27 2016




Lingering clouds, from a passing shortwave, were spread across the
area this afternoon, accompanied by temperatures in the 70s to
around 80.

Looks like another spell of Indian Summer for the Mid-State this
weekend and early next week, with some record or near record
temperatures along the way. By Saturday, expect a big upper level
ridge to be in place from Texas and Oklahoma, eastward into the
Tennessee Valley and Gulf coastal region.

We`ll probably still be a few degrees shy of record high
temperature territory on Friday. However, by Saturday, believe our
forecast high in the middle 80s at BNA will equal or exceed the
current record of 83 degrees.

A weak shortwave skirts across the Ohio River Valley on Sunday,
and will likely produce some scattered clouds over the Mid-State--
but probably not enough to prevent highs pushing back into the
lower and middle 80s in areas west of the Cumberland Plateau.

Upper level ridging increases again on Monday and Tuesday, with
high temperatures pushing into the lower and middle 80s each day
in areas west of the Plateau.

Dry weather continues through Tuesday.


Things don`t change much as we head into the latter half of next
week. High pressure remains in control of our weather, producing
more warm and dry weather.

It`s possible we could see a front push into our area by next
Thursday, but will keep forecast dry for now.



VFR condition expected thru 28/24Z as building riding influences
surface and aloft become the major weather player across the mid
state region. Clouds should continue there trend of scattering
out over the next few hours, leading to SKC conditions at all
terminals by around 28/06Z. It looks like there will be enough
low level moisture pooling potential, along with light winds and
clring skies, to support MVFR fog formation at all terminals
between 28/07Z-28/14Z, with possible even IFR vsbys CKV
28/09Z-28/14Z, per greatest depth of low level moisture pooling
potential anticipated. Light NLY Sfc winds will slowly veer to the
SE thru 28/24Z.
