center of the upper high looks to be over wrn Tennessee. Stlt is showing
mostly clr skies across the cwa with temps between 75 and 80
degrees. 00z u/a soundings from bmx and ohx and time sections all
show that the boundary layer is fairly dry, thus not expecting any
widespread/dense fog overnight. Also no pcpn is expected due to good
subsidence associated with the upper high. The current fcst looks
good attm and no changes are planned.

for 00z tafs: a large upper high continues across much of the region.
Thus there is enough subsidence across the cwa to keep dry
conditions and mostly clr skies for tonight at both taf sites. By
Tuesday aftn convective temps will be in the upper 80s and low 90s,
which will produce a sct cu field over the Tennessee Valley. Since the chc
of pcpn will be very low on Tuesday, will not include in tafs attm.
Otherwise mainly VFR conditions are expected thru the fcst period.
