.DISCUSSION...High resolution models continue to show potential
for thunderstorms to form late this afternoon/early evening.
Moisture in the atmosphere looks limited, so coverage of storms
will be isolated. Due to the dry low levels, gusty and erratic
winds will be the main threat with any storms that form, as well
as lightning. Thermal belts will maintain relatively poor RH
recoveries overnight tonight. Afternoon thunderstorms will again
be possible tomorrow afternoon.
