Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee
554 PM CDT Tue Oct 25 2016

for 00z aviation discussion.



Surface and upper ridge will dominate next 18 hours keeping
pleasant weather across the region before a short wave and surface
front approaches from the west late in the day on Wednesday. Best
chance for rain looks to be Wednesday night into early Thursday
but I have low pops for this event. The system remains moisture
starved so little in the way of rainfall is expected, probably <
0.10 most areas if even that. Front moves through Thursday
afternoon with winds turning westerly with fropa. Temps will
remain well above normal behind the front as Pacific air mass
follows. After this system comes through no real rain chance
through the remainder of October as off continent flow dominates.



00z taf discussion.

VFR conditions expected thru 26/24z as ridging influences
sfc/aloft prevail. Some passing patches of broken CI possible
thru 26/24z also. Strengthening sfc pressure gradient should
support sfc gusts to 16kts ckv/bna 26/16z-26/24z.
