Update...for 18z tafs.



Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue this
afternoon...impacting bna and ckv for the next several hours.
Ceilings and visibilities will likely bounce from VFR to MVFR levels as
passing storms impact those taf sites. Csv may still see some
passing showers...however, coverage is currently much better in
the west...and according to high res short range models it will
likely be that way throughout the night. Winds are expected to
gust 15 to 20 knots out of the southwest this evening. A short
break in precipitation is expected after 03z...then a line of showers and
storms is forecast to accompany the cold front as it swings
through middle Tennessee from 05z at ckv to 12z at csv. Winds will shift
to a more westerly direction Monday morning as the front passes.
