.DISCUSSION...

Storms will impact the area this afternoon and evening. Strong to
severe storms are still possible but the overall threat appears
to be lower. There is some potential for patchy fog to develop
tonight in areas that get the heaviest rainfall but this will
be isolated. After this system exits the area to the east drier
air will filter in and RH values gradually drop to around 40 percent
by Sunday afternoon. Temps will be warm this weekend with highs
in the mid to upper 70s.

The next system will arrive Sunday night into Monday with rain
spreading from west to east. The heaviest rainfall should remain
to the south of the area. Another round of rain and storms is
possible Wednesday next week. After that it appears we will see
much cooler and drier air spread into the area.


Fog potential over the next few days: Patchy fog is possible tonight
in areas that receive heavy rain from storms today.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
