.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE ANCHORED OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST WILL COMBINE WITH
PERSISTENT LOW PRESSURE OVER THE CENTER OF THE COUNTRY TO KEEP A
FEED OF WARM HUMID AIR IN PLACE THROUGH THE BULK OF THE LONG HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. THE MID SUMMER WARMTH WILL FUEL SOME WIDELY SEPARATED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AWAY FROM THE LAKES TODAY...THEN THIS
ACTIVITY WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE EACH DAY THROUGH MONDAY.
