Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee
841 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014


Skies have almost completely cleared across the middle state...and
with unusually low dewpoints for late July in the low to middle 50s
along with light to calm north winds...temperatures are dropping
quickly this evening. Still anticipate near record or record lows
in the 50s tonight and have not made any changes to temperatures. Some
lows in the 40s will even be possible on the plateau. Only fly in
the ointment I can see is models advertising cirrus spreading into
the County Warning Area from the west towards sunrise...but currently does not
appear this cirrus will be thick or extensive enough to affect
temperatures. Only other change to forecast was to add patchy fog
mention in river valleys...but dewpoint depressions should remain
sufficiently large enough in most areas to prevent anything
widespread or dense.

Update...for 00z aviation forecast

good flying weather next 24 hours and beyond with surface high
centered over High Plains with ridging down into deep south.
Diurnally driven cumulus field quite evident on latest visible
beginning to show signs of diminishing as sun begins to set. Could
see a brief period of a couple of hours of MVFR fog late tonight
at both Clarksville and Crossville.
