320 PM CDT SUN MAY 29 2016
It`s been a warm and quiet day across Middle Tennessee. According
to the latest obs most of the area has reached the mid to upper
80s with the exception of the Cumberland Plateau, which remains in
the low 80s. There is still the small chance of an isolated
shower or thunderstorm developing this afternoon across areas
mainly north of I-40.
Memorial Day will be dry and warm as an upper ridge moves across
the Southeast. Temperatures are expected to rise close to 90 west
of the Plateau...with those higher elevations reaching the mid
80s. Similar weather will continue into Tuesday with another warm
day. The outer bands of Tropical Depression Bonnie should remain
well east of the mid state as it impacts the Carolinas before
heading north...but if travelling to the east coast, you`ll likely
hit some storms and rainy conditions over the next few days.
The upper ridge begins to give way to a trough by mid week.
Temperatures will continue to warm, possibly into the low 90s on
Wednesday with a slight chance of showers and storms that day as
an upper low drags a plume of moisture across the central part of
the U.S. The remainder of the work week looks cloudy and
intermittently rainy as that system becomes oriented west to east
and gradually moves southeast. Ample cloud cover will provide
some relief from the heat on Thursday and Friday with high
temperatures only reaching the upper 70s and low 80s by Friday
afternoon. Precip should move south by Saturday, however, a cutoff
low develops over Texas Friday and Saturday...providing a
continued chance of precip throughout the weekend and into next
18Z TAF DISCUSSION.
A weak boundary will interact with increasing capes this
afternoon. Atm is quite dry though and the convection will be
isolated/scattered and short lived. Will opt to keep convection
out of the tafs for now. Aft 00z...the drier air will win out but
some mid level clouds will persist through 12z. Last 6 hrs of the
taf will be uneventful. Perhaps some brief early morning fog.
Otw...mostly clear skies expected.
