.DISCUSSION...

THE OLD SURFACE BOUNDARY CONTINUES TO LINGER ACROSS OUR SOUTHERN
AND SOUTHEAST COUNTIES THIS EVENING. DEWPOINTS REMAIN MUGGY
GENERALLY ALONG AND SOUTH OF THE INTERSTATE 85 CORRIDOR IN THE LOW
TO MID 70S...WHILE THERE ARE A FEW LOW TO MID 60S DEWPOINTS STILL
BEING OBSERVED ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE STATE. AS THE
BOUNDARY LAYER DECOUPLES...EXPECT DEWPOINTS TO RISE A BIT THROUGH
THE NIGHT POSSIBLY AS HIGH AS THE MID 60S. MOST SHOWERS HAVE
FINALLY DISSIPATED ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST COUNTIES LATE THIS
EVENING AND WE`RE NOT EXPECTING MUCH OF ANY ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT
THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS TONIGHT. DEWPOINTS ARE EXPECTED TO MIX
OUT INTO THE LOWER 60S AND PERHAPS UPPER 50S ONCE AGAIN DURING THE
DAY ON SUNDAY...BUT HOT TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE IN THE LOW TO
MID 90S. UPDATES ARE ALREADY OUT.
