.DISCUSSION...As the region begins to transition into a large
scale trough pattern, conditions will remain unsettled the rest of
today and into Wednesday as well. Thunderstorms will develop
during the afternoon and evening hours today, and again Wednesday,
in advance of a cooler and much wetter regime that will really set
up by Thursday. But in the near term, expect rising humidity
values and a growing chance for wetting rains tonight into
Wednesday.
