Discussion...

Surface front remains situated across the Cumberland Plateau and
southern middle Tennessee this morning, with a handful of showers
still in progress along the boundary. Will keep low pop's in over
the plateau & far south this morning, but fully expect all remaining
activity to exit the mid state by 18z. In the meantime, look for
significantly cooler, drier air to begin filtering into middle
Tennessee as high pressure builds over the Central Plains.
Significantly cooler-than-normal temperatures will persist for
several days, with morning lows in the 50's most areas from tonight
through Tuesday night. The surface ridge will shift east of the mid
state by Wednesday, with temperatures trending back to near normal
by the end of the week. Substantial moisture advection and the
approach of a surface front from the northwest will reintroduce
pop's by Thursday, with rain chances increasing by next weekend.
