Short wave and cool front will move this way tonight increasing
cloudiness with a slight chance of showers after midnight and
Thursday morning. Rainfall amounts look be skimpy and generally
less than 0.10 inch. This due to lack of moisture feed from gulf
region ahead of system. Front heads back north on Friday and this
means even warmer temps with highs around 80 and even in the
lower 80`s in a few locations well into next week. I don`t see
any rain chance here in Middle Tennessee Friday through much of
next week. Surface high will dominate the southeastern US over the
next 5 to 7 days.



VFR conditions expected to continue thru 27/24Z. Weak frontal system
approaching midstate should bring with it only the possibility of
light shwrs to terminals, and with actual location development
hard to pinpoint, will mention vcnty remarks only, confined to the
27/08Z W to 27/17Z E time frame. Will transition from high level
bkn cirrus slowly to stratus around 5 kft, before transitioning
back toward SKC conditions approaching 27/24Z, as upper level ridging
influences build across the region. Weak Sfc front may move into
cntrl portions of mid state by 27/24Z, but question whether sfc
pressure gradient will be strong enough to support significant sfc
gusts ahead of it, so did not mention, but iso gusts certainly not
out of the question. Southwesterly sfc winds in the 5 to 10 kt
range will become nwly behind sfc frontal passage.
