Issued at 226 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Dense cloud cover and some light stratiform rain remains in place early this morning across the Tennessee Valley as an area of low pressure shifts across the Deep South. To the southwest, a larger cluster of showers and few storms is tracking eastward across the Gulf region of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. This activity will remain to our south (save for a few light showers that may clip southern portions of the CWA through 15-18z). A deepening upper-trough will swing across the region today, pushing the true cold front through the area and ushering in a cooler, drier air mass. As a result, temperatures will again be below normal for late April as highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s will be common (even as we dry out) and cloud cover dissipates during the afternoon.

(Tonight through Wednesday)
Issued at 226 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Clear conditions will develop by this evening as winds slowly begin to weaken. This will allow for some radiational cooling in this dry air mass with low temperatures dropping into the upper 30s to lower 40s in most locations by early Monday morning. A few locations (especially in southern middle Tennessee) could see a brief period for patchy frost development. However, confidence is still low given borderline temperatures and the magnitude of this dry air mass. As such, have held off on an Advisory for now. We will enter a period of tranquil weather early this week as high pressure builds back into the region. In turn, we'll see a gradual warming trend as highs return to the mid/upper 60s on Monday and the low to mid 70s Tuesday and Wednesday. One feature we will have to watch is a weak shortwave that will ripple southeast across the area late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. This feature may bring a brief period of cloud cover and perhaps a few sprinkles in the predawn hours Wednesday morning. However, in general mostly sunny and dry weather is forecast for the entire period Monday through Wednesday.

(Wednesday night through Saturday)
Issued at 226 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

An upper ridge axis will build amplify across the region Thursday and Friday. Cloud cover ahead of a low pressure system well to the west will filter back into the region, especially by Friday However, deep southerly flow (combined with sufficient breaks of sunshine) will help push highs back into the mid 70s on Thursday and the upper 70s to lower 80s on Friday and Saturday. A pronounced longwave trough over the western United States will slowly progress eastward late this week into the weekend. This will be the next feature to watch as it may bring our next decent chances for showers/storms this weekend and/or early next week.

(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 609 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

VFR conditions will be the predominant flight category at each terminal through the period. Overcast conditions this morning will gradually give way to clearing skies by the mid-afternoon as a drier air mass pushes into the area. Winds may become gusty at times this afternoon between 10-20 mph out of the north.
