.DISCUSSION...
/ISSUED 1038 AM CST FRI FEB 12 2016/
A FEW FLURRIES WERE REPORTED EARLIER THIS MORNING IN WINCHESTER WITH
THE BAND OF PRECIP THAT MOVED ACROSS SOUTHERN MIDDLE TN AND NE AL.
RADAR AND SATELLITE CONFIRM THAT PRECIP AND MAJORITY OF THE CLOUD
COVER HAS MOVED OUT OF THE FORECAST AREA.

THE CLOUD COVER STREAMING IN FROM THE NW IS ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE
TROUGH THAT ENCOMPASSES THE EASTERN HALF OF THE U.S. TODAY. OUR
SOUTHERN MIDDLE TN COUNTIES ALONG WITH NE AL ARE ON THE EDGE OF THE
CLOUD SHIELD SO MAY GO BETWEEN FEW TO BKN. THE REST OF THE FORECAST
AREA WILL BE UNDER MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. ALSO ADJUSTED DEWPOINTS TO
ACCOUNT FOR CURRENT TRENDS AS THEY ARE CURRENTLY IN THE UPPER 20S AT
16Z. TEMPS WILL BE ABLE TO REACH NEAR SEASONABLE VALUES IN THE LOWER
50S...TO UPPER 40S IN SOUTHERN MIDDLE TN BEFORE WINDS BECOME
NORTHWESTERLY WITH AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT.
