Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Nashville TN
830 PM CDT Sat Mar 17 2018




Cold front is working its way through the mid state, and just
passed through the Nashville metro area within the last hour.
Winds will become northerly behind the front, and remain gusty
this evening before calming down a bit overnight. Lows look to
fall into the 40s, but did not lower temps from the previous
forecast too much as a low cloud deck in central KY is not too
far behind the front. Clouds should roll in and help keep much of
the mid state in the mid 40s for low temps. Other than some minor
adjustments to account for current obs trends, rest of the
forecast is on track.



A few TS have developed south of KCSV, however it doesn`t look
like any of our mid-state terminals will be affected this evening.
However, there is a big, low cloud shield to our north that is
expected to push into Middle TN later tonight and bring MVFR/IFR
cigs to all terminals. Have gone ahead and prevailed these through
mid-morning Sunday.

Winds are going to be the other part of the story through about
06Z. Gusty west to northwest winds will continue to plague all
terminals before dying out heading into Sunday morning.
