.DISCUSSION...A risk of showers and thunderstorms will exist through
the rest of the work week. However peak times for rain should occur
tonight, Thursday night, and Friday afternoon and evening. Humidity
levels will increase on Thursday and remain muggy into Friday. It
will warm each day, with highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s.

It appears we will dry out by the weekend, but more rain chances
return by Monday and Monday night, and again Wednesday.  High
temperatures this weekend and into mid week should mainly remain
from 80 to 85.
