265 FXUS64 KMRX 221330 AAA AFDMRX Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Morristown TN 930 AM EDT Sun Apr 22 2018 .DISCUSSION...
-- Changed Discussion --
Rain is beginning to spread into the area from the southwest, on track with the forecast, but an update will be issued mainly to make some changes to the wind products. A Wind Advisory will be issued for the southern Valley and Plateau areas, and SW NC. With the NAM showing 925 mb winds near 50 kts tonight, and only a weak near-surface inversion in the soundings, the winds aloft should be able to mix down to the surface, particularly on the ridgetops. Since this appears to be a favorable setup for mountain waves, the High Wind Warning may need to be expended westward to include a greater portion of the foothills as well as parts of SW VA. Will evaluate the 12Z models before making a final decision on this.
