.DISCUSSION...

Surface high pressure is situated to our east with the upper
ridge now passing over Middle Tennessee. Winds have turned
southward so temperatures have warmed considerably since this
morning. A surface boundary approaching from the northwest will
begin spreading clouds across the mid state tomorrow, but any
precipitation with this system will likely hold off until tomorrow
night or later. The surface boundary will become more latitudinal
and quasi-stationary owing to a blocking high over the southeast
U.S., much like a summertime pattern. Showers and a few storms
will become more numerous Thursday and Thursday night as an upper
trough gathers up this moisture and pushes across the region and
then brings in drier air beginning on Friday. We are currently not
outlooked for severe storms with this system, and the 7-day QPF
for Middle Tennessee runs from about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. So there
isn`t much risk of hazardous weather for at least the next 7 days.
A fast- moving system will bring spotty showers to the mid state
on Sunday. Next week will begin where this one leaves off, with
temperatures running slightly above normal.
