UNDERNEATH THE EASTERN EDGE OF THE LARGE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE CENTERED

TO LOCALIZED SEVERE STORMS ARE POSSIBLE...BUT IN GENERAL AM
EXPECTING MARGINALLY STRONG WINDS AND LIGHTNING BEING THE MAIN
THREATS /ALONG WITH SOME HEAVY DOWNPOURS/. ONCE AGAIN...ACTIVITY

MOUNTAINS...BEFORE DROPPING INTO THE VALLEY BY THE EARLY EVENING.
