Lower dewpoints are slowly filtering in across the cwa behind a cdfnt that is now south of the TN Valley. Temps at 230 am were arnd 70 with dewpoints in the mid 60s all under mostly clr skies. For today expect less humid conditions as dewpoints drop into the mid/upper 50s by the aftn. It still will be on the hot side with highs arnd 90. Mostly clr tonight as a large sfc high expands across the region. Mrng lows on Thursday will be in the lower 60s, not bad for the end of June. Thursday and Friday, models keep the TN Valley in between an old cdfnt to our S and another cdfnt to our NW. Also QPF fields are showing dry conditions during this timeframe. Temps will be near normal as well. On Saturday and Sunday low level moisture begins to return across the cwa along with a chc of shra and tsra as the above mentioned cdfnt to our N approaches the area. ECMWF tends to keep the chc of pcpn a little farther N of the cwa, while the GFS brings the chc of pcpn a little farther S. Overall it looks like the better chc of pcpn will be N of the TN Valley. The 4th of July may be a little tricky with the chc of pcpn. Attm the ECMWF keeps the cwa mostly dry, while the GFS is more bullish with the chc of pcpn. Stay tuned.
