NEAR TERM. (Tonight) Issued at 123 PM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021
Other than a few high clouds, a mostly clear sky is expected again tonight. River/lake valley fog is again expected late tonight, especially in southern TN and northeast AL, where lows could dip into the upper 60s in spots. Some of these areas dropped into the middle 60s this morning.
SHORT TERM. (Friday through Saturday) Issued at 123 PM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021
A Heat Advisory will run from Noon - 7 PM on Friday, mainly for counties along and west of a Lynchburg-Huntsville-Cullman line, where heat index values may reach 105+, at least for an hour or two. The other factor tomorrow will be a cold front dropping south into middle and eastern TN during the afternoon hours. This may produce a few thunderstorms that will trickle into southern middle TN and north Alabama during the afternoon hours. Forecast soundings are weakly to un-capped during peak heating, and with a possible MCV dropping southeast, will carry a slight chance into the early evening as well. The TN valley will be on the southern periphery of a broad northwest flow at 5h across the northeastern quadrant of the CONUS on Saturday. It will be another hot and humid day, but it is less certain heat index values will reach 105+, so have held off on another advisory just yet. Diurnally generated afternoon thunderstorms are a possibility again.
LONG TERM. (Saturday night through Wednesday) Issued at 123 PM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021
A trough then digs into the southeast by Sunday into Monday. This brings a secondary cold front through the region. In advance of and along the front, clusters of showers and thunderstorms are expected. One or more clusters/small MCS will drop southeast with the front late Saturday night into Sunday. Bulk shear values will increase to 20-30kt, so a couple of strong to severe storms cannot be ruled out. The front will be slow to drop southeast and will keep high chance to likely PoPs into Monday, before shifting south of the area on Tuesday. The widespread clouds and numerous showers and thunderstorms will keep temperatures in the lower to middle 80s on Monday. Temperatures will warm into the upper 80s Tuesday and Wednesday, with lows in the 60s, as a 5h trough/upper low remains entrenched over the eastern CONUS next week.
