.DISCUSSION...

Widespread precipitation across the area overnight finally
showing signs of dissipating somewhat...and this trend is
expected to continue well into the afternoon as a SFC low
near the gulf coast moves off into the atlantic. In the
meantime...trailing upper low is currently setting up across the
mid-south region. 12z RAOB showed a decent warm nose pushed up
across the mid-state overnight and really over-powered other
cooling affects...thus most of the area has seen rain or freezing
rain. Areas across the northwest remain focus this morning as weak
deform zone of upper system continues to hold precip over that
area next hour or two. Many locations there have seen a light
glaze of ice, up to a quarter inch...with a few places just above.
At this point it seems just a few additional hundreths possible
as heavier precip dissipates. In heaviest ice hit locations,
reports are largely downed small branches and a couple trees. TDOT
reports some roads have been treated. Overall, all roads are
passable.

Current area receiving rain likely to see mainly rain rest of the
day...although it may mix with some snow plateau as temps stay
above freezing.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAF DISCUSSION.

Precip coverage has decreased this afternoon, but some drizzle and
light rain will continue for the majority of the day. Visibilities
will bounce between VFR and MVFR as precip and low clouds linger.
The good news is that temperatures have risen above freezing and
will stay there until later this evening. Some snow may mix with
rain at CSV early Monday morning. Cigs are expected to remain at
IFR and MVFR heights until Monday late morning or afternoon.
