After a chilly start to the day along with extensive fog along
the rivers...it turned into an excellent day with mostly sunny
skies and temps reaching into the 60s most areas. With light winds
and just some cirrus, temps will fall quickly this evening. Expect
fog to redevelop late tonight in many of the same areas as this
morning's fog.

Another nice day is on tap for Sunday with temps in the mid 50s
to lower 60s. However, expect thickening clouds as moisture
increases ahead of a weak short wave that will approach from the
west. Best chances for rain will be across the north Sunday night
and eastern half of the region on Monday...but only light amounts
are expected as the moisture increase is pretty minimal. Not as
warm on Monday due to scattered rain showers and a weak front.

Drying will commence Monday night and last through the rest of
next week. Temps will bottom out on Wednesday with morning lows
in the 20s and afternoon highs near 50 as surface high pressure
settles in across the region. Temps will increase a little by late
next week as southerly winds develop on the back side of a
departing surface ridge. Next chance for rain looks to occur
Friday night and Saturday as an upper trough moves across the
Midwest and Mid South.



Mainly VFR conditions, but somewhat like last night, fog is
expected to develop again. Look for IFR conditions for at least a
few hours prior to sunrise Sunday morning at all mid-state
terminals except KBNA.

Winds will be calm tonight and shift to the southwest Sunday
