.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY
HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE REGION...AS A
COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE NORTHWEST. THE FRONT WILL MOVE

FAIRLY QUICKLY. MOISTURE WILL INCREASE ON SUNDAY...OUT AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING STRONGER FRONT. THIS BOUNDARY WILL AFFECT THE AREA IN
THE LONG TERM PERIODS...BRINGING A BETTER CHANCE OF
SHOWERS/STORMS.

A SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE STATE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY...WITH
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY SPREADING ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA.
LIMITED RAIN CHANCES TO ABOUT 40 PERCENT FOR NOW...BUT THAT IS MORE
TO ACCOUNT FOR POSSIBLE TIMING CHANGES AS NEXT WEEKEND DRAWS NEAR.
SHOWERS MAY LINGER INTO TUESDAY MORNING BUT SHOULD CLEAR TO THE EAST
BY MIDDAY FOR IMPROVING CONDITIONS TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
