.DISCUSSION...

AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE EAST LATE THIS AFTERNOON INTO
THE EVENING DURING PEAK HEATING TO HELP INITIATE ISOLATED TO
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY ACROSS THE NORTH. DRIER AIR HAS
FILTERED EAST ACROSS THE STATE THAT WILL LIMIT DEEP
MOISTURE...WHERE THUNDERSTORMS THAT DO FORM WILL BE HIGHER BASED
AND CAPABLE OF PRODUCING MORE WIND THAN RAINFALL.
