.NEAR TERM...(Tonight)
Issued at 251 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021

Seasonably cool and tranquil wx conditions prevail over the TN Valley
this Sun afternoon, as temps climb into the mid/upper 60s for most
spots. Temps may climb a couple of more degrees before the onset of
the evening hrs bring optimal radiational cooling conditions. Lows
early Mon again look to fall predom into the upper 30s/lower 40s,
under continued clear skies.

.SHORT TERM...(Monday through Tuesday)
Issued at 251 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021

Little change is expected in the overall wx pattern heading into the
new work week, as high pressure out of the mid/srn Plains states
builds into the region. This should provide for a gradual warming
trend starting Mon, as sfc flow begins to veer to the east. Highs
look to climb mainly into the lower/mid 70s by Tue, with lows that
morning trending in the lower/mid 40s.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday)
Issued at 251 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021

Moisture will begin to gradually filter back into the mid TN Valley
by mid week, as the sfc high begins to move east of the region. An
upper low/trough axis will also swing ewd thru the mid Plains Wed
before lifting into the Great Lakes by Thu. The associated sfc low
will also track NE into the Great Lakes region Thu into Fri, pushing
a cold front thru the SE region. This should allow sct showers, along
with a few tstms, to develop along/ahead of the front during the day
Thu, before quickly tapering off Thu evening with the passage of the
front. Another strong dome of high pressure out of the nrn Plains
will then build SE into the region by the end of the work week, with
dry and near seasonal conditions expected into next weekend.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon)
Issued at 1235 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021

With a strong dome of high pressure out of the mid/srn Plains states
building into the region, VFR conds are expected thru the period.
