.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 408 AM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014/

DISCUSSION...

VERY LITTLE CHANGE TO PREVIOUS FORECAST. TODAY WILL BE SIMILAR TO
YESTERDAY WITH TEMPS WARMING INTO THE MID TO UPPER 80S FOR MOST OF
THE AREA...AND AROUND 80 FOR THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU. MOSTLY CLEAR
TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES EXPECTED AS WE CONTINUE TO SEE A SOUTHERLY
SURFACE FLOW AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING TROUGH. ANOTHER MILD NIGHT
SATURDAY NIGHT.

CLOUD COVER AND PRECIP CHANCES WILL INCREASE FOR THE NORTHWEST
COUNTIES SUNDAY MORNING...KEEPING TEMPS A FEW DEGREES COOLER FOR
THE NORTHWEST. HOWEVER, TEMPERATURES WILL BE ALLOWED TO WARM
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN COUNTIES AGAIN ON SUNDAY AS THOSE
AREAS WILL LIKELY NOT SEE THE FRONTAL PASSAGE UNTIL AFTER NOON.
WILL SEE SLIGHTLY MORE POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS SOUTH OF THE
INTERSTATE 40 CORRIDOR ON SUNDAY DUE TO THE AFTERNOON FROPA AND
DAYTIME HEATING. STILL NOT EXPECTING SEVERE WEATHER...JUST GENERAL
THUNDERSTORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS POSSIBLE. PRECIP IS EXPECTED TO ENTER THE
NORTHWEST COUNTIES AROUND 8AM AND PUSH THE THROUGH THE CWA
THROUGHOUT THE DAY...EXITING THE SOUTHEASTERN PORTION OF MIDDLE
TENNESSEE BY MIDNIGHT SUNDAY NIGHT.

MONDAY WILL BE RELATIVELY COOL...HIGHS IN THE MID 70S...AND DRY AS
A NORTHWEST FLOW SETS IN THE FOR THE DAY. AS THE UPPER TROUGH
CONTINUES TO SLIDE EAST A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE
IN...INFLUENCING DRY WEATHER FOR REMAINDER OF THE EXTENDED FORECAST.
TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO WARM INTO THE LOW 80S TUESDAY THROUGH
SATURDAY...OVERNIGHT LOWS GRADUALLY WARMING FROM AROUND 50 ON
MONDAY NIGHT TO THE MID TO UPPER 50S SATURDAY MORNING.

.OHX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
