.Discussion...

On Saturday and Sunday, scattered showers and thunderstorms will
be possible over and near the mountains, with isolated activity
being possible elsewhere.  At this time it looks like moisture
will increase over the area early next week, bringing better
chances for precipitation.

Smoke dispersion in the afternoon hours on Saturday and Sunday
is expected to be good or better.


--- thunderstorms imply strong gusty and erratic winds ---
