.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 1018 PM CDT THU SEP 18 2014/
AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE CENTRAL US IS PROVIDING A
NORTHWESTERLY FLOW TO THE TN VALLEY. A SHORT WAVE MOVING INTO THE
REGION IS KEEPING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS GOING AT THIS HOUR.
ADJUSTED THE ORIENTATION AND LOWERED THE POPS TIL 06Z. KEPT PRECIP
CHANCES MAINLY WEST OF I-65 AS RADAR TRENDS AND MODEL GUIDANCE
SUGGESTS STORMS WILL GET JUST OVER THE MS/AL BORDER OVERNIGHT. MOST
STRATUS CLOUD COVER EXTENDS BACK INTO THE MO BOOTHILLS. THEREFORE
PUSHED BACK THE CLEARING SKIES AND DID NOT ADD IN FOG AT THIS TIME.
ADJUSTED DEWPOINTS AS THEY WERE CURRENTLY RUNNING A LITTLE HIGHER
THAN FORECASTED. ALSO UPDATED THE WINDS AND WIND GUSTS FOR CURRENT
TRENDS AS WELL. PRECIP ACTIVITY SHOULD END TOWARDS MIDNIGHT AND
DECREASING CLOUDS THEREAFTER WITH PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES TOWARDS THE
MORNING HOURS.
