Discussion...

Not any real significant changes with this evening's update.
Tweaked hourly temperatures as the diurnal curve has been tampered
with by the additional cloud cover. Temperatures have been slow to
fall, but didn't adjust morning lows. Should still be good.

As far as pops, I added a little across the south for the current
radar returns, but it's likely that very little of this is
reaching the ground due to the very dry lower levels (see: 00z ohx
sounding). As more light showers stream into middle Tennessee after
midnight, more will begin reaching the ground and we should see
some wet pavement around the Friday morning commute.

Grid updates out in a moment.

00z taf discussion.

Clouds are increasing from the west this evening. Conditions
should remain VFR overnight, but clouds are expected to lower to
MVFR heights by Friday afternoon. A few passing showers will be
possible tonight. Coverage will increase by 18z Friday and bring a
good chance of rain to bna, mqy, and csv. Most precip should stay
south of ckv, so only included mention of vcsh there. Winds will
be light and out of the south for most of the period.
