.DISCUSSION...

All of the guidance is showing a shortwave moving southwestward
from the Tennessee Valley this morning into Mississippi/Arkansas
this evening. This will lead to scattered convection once again,
with the best chances across the north. Current radar shows a few
showers from near Memphis to Chattanooga. With increased cloud
cover and convection, guidance temperatures have responded with
cooler numbers than previous days over much of the northern half
of the CWA. This brings about lower to mid 90s instead of upper
90s across the north with 95+ still likely in the south. Still
very humid as well but probably not "officially" reaching the heat
advisory criteria. Considering its a summer Saturday with lots of
outdoor activities, will let it ride for now.

Looking at next week we see a lot of subtle impulses within and
around the ridge as it slowly transitions its center back to the
southwestern conus. Isolated to scattered convection can be
expected each. Most of the activity will be diurnal, but some
showers/storms could linger into the night. Highs in the low/mid
90s and lows in the 70s. In the 6 to 8 day range there is a
temporary pattern change with a trough setting up over the
southeastern states which would bring in even better rain chances.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF Discussion.

Most of the showers/storms have dissipated for most areas. There
still could be an isolated shower/storm that develops but those
chances are too low to mention for the night. Patchy BR will be
possible right around sunrise across the normal locals. Scattered
showers/storms will once again be possible after 18 and included
VCTS at all sites.

.FIRE WEATHER...

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected over the next
several days with highs in the 90s. Critical fire weather
thresholds are not expected to be met with no watches or warnings
expected.
