735 PM CST Sat Dec 14 2019




Radar imagery and surface obs this evening show some light rain
and drizzle has developed across much of the area ahead of a cold
front current moving across our northwest zones. This light rain
and drizzle will likely persist this evening until the front
sweeps it east of our area around midnight per the HRRR, so have
added a slight chance pop to account for this. Also added patchy
fog to the area overnight as dewpoint depressions are already on
the low side, although the northwest winds behind the front will
help to alleviate this somewhat. Rest of forecast is on track.



VFR CIGs at BNA/MQY/and CSV will give way to MVFR and IFR CIGS
overnight. There could even be some patchy fog and LIFR at the 
TAF sites around sunrise but confidence is not high enough except 
at CSV. The MVFR CIGS at CKV will also become IFR. It looks like
CIGs could improve to VFR tomorrow after 15Z for a few hours.
