Single slope shop roof

I am building a single slope shed roof pole frame building. It will be 20’ wide and 36’ long. The slope will be a 4/12 with 2x8 rafters with a 10’ span with bracing half way through the building, Metal roofing with 5/8 sheathing.

The snow load in the area is at least 50 lbs and 60 lbs isn’t uncommon

My calculations show I’m good for the snow load but I would like input that this roof structurally sound

Here in the southeast 2x8s would be overkill but we don't get a lot of snow. Can you further explain the bracing at 10'? is it a dividing wall? beam with supports every so often?
