Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee
1128 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2017
for 06z aviation discussion.
The band of showers and thunderstorms that pushed into eastern
middle Tennessee late Saturday afternoon, and brought a couple
strong thunderstorms, has now evolved into a band of numerous
showers with saturating rains. Since the band is moving so slowly
eastward, it looks like many areas between Interstate 65 and the
Cumberland Plateau-- especially over the southeast--could receive
between one half and one inch of rain tonight. Some locations
could see over an inch. As a result, an Special Weather Statement has been issued to
advise folks in this rain band to avoid driving through areas
where water covers the Road.
Aside from that, the afternoon forecast seems to be humming along
quite nicely. Will probably make some adjustments to our weather
and pop grids to indicate latest trends and may also add the
mention of the possibility for locally heavy rainfall for some
06z taf discussion.
Bna/ckv/csv...a large band of showers has evolved from earlier
convection that is propagating almost due north through middle
Tennessee and showing very little eastward progression.
Precipitation is generally light and vsby's won't drop too
dramatically with the showers, but ceilings can be expected to
decrease to MVFR later tonight and Sunday morning before the rain
moves out and drier air works its way in.
