.DISCUSSION...An upper level shortwave will continue to bring a
chance for isolated thunderstorms the next two afternoons/evenings.
Storm development will become increasingly moist each day as the
shifting low ushers in additional moisture over northern
California. Interior temperatures should remain near normal and
daytime RH values will increase subtly through tomorrow. Building
high pressure will bring warming temperatures and drier weather
later this week while coastal regions will remain seasonal and
cloudy.
