.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 422 PM CDT TUE AUG 26 2014/
THE MAJORITY OF THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE STAYED TO OUR
NORTHWEST WITH ONLY A FEW SHOWERS MAKING IT INTO OUR NW COUNTIES
TODAY. ADDED IN PATCHY FOG TO THE FORECAST FOR LOCATIONS NEAR BODIES
OF WATER AND IN VALLEYS. WITH NEARLY CALM WINDS AND DECREASING CLOUDS
TO A MOSTLY CLEAR SKY...EVEN WITH THE LOWER DEWPOINTS IN THE AREA
SOME LOCATIONS COULD SEE FOG. CLOUD COVER THROUGHOUT THE DAY HELD
BACK THE TEMPS FROM REACHING INTO THE 90S TODAY...BUT TEMPS WILL GET
DOWN INTO THE MID 60S TONIGHT. THESE TEMPS COUPLED WITH THE LOWER
DEWPOINTS WILL MAKE FOR A PLEASANT EVENING ACROSS THE TN VALLEY.

WITH HIGH PRESSURE MOVING BACK OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES...DRY
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE WORK WEEK. SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL
BEGIN TO RETURN ON THURSDAY AHEAD OF A TROUGH MOVING THROUGH THE
MIDWEST AND THE HIGH MOVING OFF INTO THE ATLANTIC. THE GULF MOISTURE
WILL ALLOW PWATS TO INCREASE OVER AN INCH ON FRIDAY AND UP TO 2 INCHES
ON SATURDAY. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS COME BACK INTO THE FORECAST
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND SATURDAY AS DISTURBANCES MOVE ACROSS THE TN
VALLEY. THE PATTERN WILL REMAIN UNSETTLED INTO THE BEGINNING OF THE
NEXT WORK WEEK.

AS FOR TEMPS...LOW TO MID 90S THROUGH THURSDAY WITH FRIDAY LEADING
THE SLIGHT DECREASE TREND WITH LOWER 90S...WHICH IS OUR NORM. THE
WEEKEND MAY NOT REACH THE 90S...BUT WE WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL TEMPS
THROUGH THE NEXT WORK WEEK. OTHERWISE LOWS WILL BE IN THE UPPER 60S
TO AROUND 70 DEGREES THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.
