Radar imagery this morning shows scattered to numerous showers
continue across the eastern two-thirds of middle Tennessee. Based
on radar and the latest hrrr runs, nudged up precip chances a tad
for the rest of the day over the western half. Cannot rule out a
thunderstorm or two today but chance seems quite remote and will
not mention in grids or zones. Despite the showers and associated
widespread cloud cover today, temperatures are already in the mid
to upper 70s and highs in the low to mid 80s still seem
reasonable. Rest of forecast is on track and no other significant
changes were made.
