.AVIATION...
A messy and low confidence TAF period will be on tap as a low
pressure system approaches the area. CHA will see predominant MVFR
vis and cigs, with periods of IFR in heavier rainfall, which
appears most likely to occur in the 03-07Z time frame. Meanwhile,
rain will have a harder time spreading into TYS and TRI as strong
downslope winds will keep conditions predominantly VFR through the
evening, with perhaps MVFR vis at TYS overnight as rain
intensifies. Winds will become gusty overnight as the low
approaches. LLWS may be needed in later forecasts, but at this
time it appears that the strongest winds should stay above 2 kft
AGL.
