National Weather Service Morristown Tennessee

Discussion...current forecast appears to be on track...as decent
instability and moisture will lead to scattered showers and
thunderstorms again this afternoon. Will keep mention of
possibility of isolated severe storms in the severe weather potential statement as soundings look
favorable for some isolated strong downdrafts. Will adjust Max
temps up most locations...and also will tweak dew points...sky and
pops. Update out soon.
