The current weather pattern is staying pretty much on track from
what we`ve been expecting. The warm front that moved northward
last night is draped across southern KY, apparent by the colder
temperatures to the north, a fairly prevalent wind shift and a few
thunderstorms that have been traversing the front in southern KY
over the last couple of hours. While those could creep into our
far northern tier of Middle TN counties prior to the noon hour, due
to a lack of instability over Middle TN, the bulk of weather
everyone is seeing it just on and off rain showers. I still think
the best chance for soaking rain is going to be relegated to areas
along and north of the I-40 corridor due to the location of the
warm front. Will continue to highlight this coverage in the PoPs,
with lesser chances of rain closer to the Alabama state line
throughout the day.

Still think showers will linger into the evening hours and should
begin tapering off after midnight, setting us up for a dry Sunday.

Updates on the way.



MVFR conditions are finally starting at all terminals. Cigs are
expected to slowly continue falling through the afternoon and
evening hours, eventually ending up at IFR for all terminals prior
to 05Z. Vis conditions aren`t expected to be bad due to the light
nature of the rain, but cigs will still make it IFR.

Winds will be breezy throughout this cycle with southwest winds
becoming northerly with a frontal passage this evening.
