.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 1027 AM CDT WED OCT 22 2014/
ANOTHER VERY PLEASANT, DRY, SUNNY DAY UNDERWAY ACROSS THE TENNESSEE
VALLEY. VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A SOLID DECK OF
STRATOCUMULUS OVER THE CENTRAL APPALACHIANS, WITH SOME PATCHY
STRATOCU PUSHING SW TOWARD THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU, THOUGH THEY HAVE
NOT MADE IT FAR BEYOND CROSSVILLE OR CHATTANOOGA. THIS IS LIKELY
ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK DISTURBANCE ROUNDING THE SW FLANK OF THE
CUTOFF LOW CURRENTLY CENTERED OVER THE DELMARVA PENINSULA.

SHORT-TERM MODEL OUTPUT INDICATES THAT THE STRATOCU MIGHT FILTER A
LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO THE HUNTSVILLE CWFA, BUT IT SHOULD NOT HAVE MUCH
IMPACT, EVEN IN FAR NORTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA. TEMPERATURES
ARE RIGHT ON TRACK TO REACH THE UPPER 60S. ASIDE FROM A FEW VERY
MINOR TWEAKS FOR DEWPOINT AND SKY COVER, NO FORECAST CHANGES ARE
NEEDED.
