ALONG WITH DAYTIME CU DEVELOPMENT...INCREASED OUR CLOUD COVER TODAY.
INCREASED CLOUD COVER A LITTLE FURTHER FOR THIS MORNING AND AFTN
BASED ON CURRENT SATELLITE TRENDS. TEMPS WERE QUICK TO RISE THUS FAR
TODAY AHEAD OF THE CLOUD COVER AND APPROACHING BOUNDARY...ALLOWING
FOR POTENTIAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON. INCREASED THE
POPS FOR BASED ON CURRENT TRENDS AND THE INCREASED SUPPORT. FOR THIS
AFTERNOON...CAPE VALUES COULD REACH 2500 J/KG AND PWATS ARE OVER 1.5
INCHES AGAIN TODAY DUE TO THE LOW LEVEL SW WINDS STILL AROUND ALLOW
SOME MOISTURE TRANSPORT TO CONTINUE INTO THE REGION. WITH THE
AFTERNOON HEATING...BOUNDARY INTERACTION AND THE APPROACHING SHORT
