morning, then weakening and falling apart. As a result, will

nearby chance pops as well for late morning. If showers and storms
hold together longer than currently expected, may need to increase
pops over other parts of southern middle Tennessee for this
afternoon as well.

Have updated suite of products to reflect these changes.

Otherwise, little change to previous forecast.

MVFR this afternoon due to ceilings. Look for patchy br and low
cigs, ranging anywhere from 200 ft to 1100 ft, to develop between
05z and 09z. However, cigs and vsbys should return to VFR by
