A solid area of showers with isolated thunderstorms will continue
to work across middle Tennessee as we go through the day with a
heavy downpours. Short wave is now entering western middle
Tennessee with a mid level trough back in Missouri. Temps will not
be as warm/hot today due to clouds and rain.

12z taf discussion.

Expect a cold front to move across the area today, accompanied by
a band of numerous showers and thunderstorms. Look for a mix of
MVFR and IFR conditions to prevail with this band of precipitation
as it moves eastward across the mid-state today and this evening.
By late this evening and overnight, precipitation should taper off
from the west. However, MVFR conditions (and possible IFR at csv)
are forecast to linger through the end of the forecast period.
