037 FXUS64 KMRX 241714 AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Morristown TN 114 PM EDT Thu May 24 2018 .AVIATION... Expect VFR conditions to continue today with high pressure and low level sct cu. Will have the potential for a few thunderstorms in the vicinity of TYS and CHA this afternoon, but probabilities are not very high of them directly impacting a terminal. Most thunderstorms should remain across the higher elevations of the surrounding mountains. Can`t rule out vcts at TRI this afternoon, but probabilities are low, so did not include in the TAF. Late tonight, guidance shows the potential for some fog, but with high clouds moving in, think that the potential for fog will be low. However, the chance of fog impacting a terminal will increase if it receives rain this afternoon and high clouds are slower to move in. Because of this uncertainty, did not include fog in the TAF at this time. Cigs begin to lower tomorrow as more moisture moves in, but expect to remain VFR through the end of the period. && .MRX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... NC...None. TN...None. VA...None. && $$ JB
