.DISCUSSION...
THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF WET THUNDERSTORMS OVER INLAND
LOCATIONS THIS EVENING BUT WITH WEAK CAPPING AND LOW CAPE VALUES
THE CHANCE IS MINIMAL. HOWEVER...THERE IS ENOUGH HEATING AND
INSTABILITY FOR AFTERNOON/EVENING RAIN SHOWERS TO CONTINUE INTO
FRIDAY. WINDS LOOK TO INCREASE THURSDAY AFTERNOON AS A FRONT
APPROACHES FROM THE SOUTH AND THEY WILL WEAKEN AGAIN THURSDAY
NIGHT.
