Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee
1126 am CST Thursday Feb 11 2016

for 18z aviation discussion.



High pressure to our north will keep our skies mostly sunny today
with just some high clouds to worry about. Temperatures will be
chilly under a northeast wind with highs in the low 30s east where
the most snow cover is up to the low 40s southwest. For later
tonight...have a slight chance of snow over our extreme northestern areas
late tonight as a clipper system barely skirts our region but not
really expecting much of anything.

Everything else on track. No forecast package update needed.


18z taf discussion.

VFR conditions should prevail through most of this 24-hour taf
period. Mostly clear skies and light NE winds will dominate until
a clipper system approaches from the northwest after 06z tonight.
By 12z...MVFR ceilings may affect ckv and bna...and a few hours later
at csv. Light snow will accompany this system but most of the
activity may miss our middle Tennessee taf sites to the north. Ckv may
see flurries but left those out of the taf site for now. Best
chance will be towards the end of this taf period at csv...where
vcsh has been introduced. May need to drop their visibilities with later
