One minor change to tonight's forecast surrounding the latest wave
that will bring some showers into the mid-state late tonight. I
don't think we're going to get as cool as originally thought, so
i've bumped overnight lows just a bit due to the cloud cover.

Radar is showing some returns over west TN, but with dew points as
low as they are, I highly doubt any of that is reaching the
ground. But, the atmosphere will saturate slowly through the rest
of the night and by morning, a second wave will bring showers into
middle Tennessee. This won't be a washout by any stretch as these
showers should leave the mid-state by early afternoon and we
should be dry until late tomorrow night when another wave will
bring more precipitation into the area.

Forecast updates will be out shortly.

VFR with chances for showers/MVFR conditions possible. Showers
look to move in overnight and into the morning hours, and mainly
look to impact kckv and kbna. Current thinking is showers arriving
at kckv around 09z, and at kbna around 10z-12z. Showers should
come to an end around 14z at kckv and 18z for kbna. Vcsh will also
be possible after those times as the best chances for rain move
eastward. Currently only have MVFR cigs/vis for kckv and kbna for
a short time during the best chances for precip in the morning.
