308 PM EDT FRI MAY 27 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight and tomorrow)...
Ongoing showers will continue to spread northward into the Valley
through the afternoon...but with the loss of daytime heating...they
are expected to dissipate. Some areas that see rain could see some
fog develop...and will mention patchy fog for the Knoxville area.
This summer-like pattern will continue tomorrow...with diurnal
showers and thunderstorms favoring terrain areas and a northward
drift into the Valley...and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Friday)...
Warm and humid conditions will prevail the remainder of the holiday
weekend. High pressure ridge along the atlantic coast begins to break
down saturday night and sunday. A tropical or semitropical low will
move into the Carolinas and move north. To the west over the
appalachians weak high pressure dominates. Moist southerly flow will
bring isolated to scattered afternoon and early evening showers and
thunderstorms sunday and monday. The best chances will be over the
mountains and northeast valley. Wednesday and thursday rain chances
increase again as southerly flow increases and a weak front
approaches. This front is forecast to move into the mountains
thursday and become nearly stationary along the mountains friday.
Showers and storms will become likely in the mountains late thursday
and friday. Temperatures will be warm through the period...mostly
mid 80s to lower 90s days and 60s at night with slightly cooler
temperatures friday...especially in the mountains.
