.DISCUSSION...PREVIOUS FORECAST LOOKS TO BE ON TRACK. THE ONLY
SLIGHT CHANGE FOR THIS MORNING WAS TO INCREASE RAIN CHANCES ACROSS
THE EXTREME SOUTHERN VALLEY AND DOWN INTO SWNC FOR THE REST OF THE
AFTERNOON. CURRENT RADAR SHOWS LIGHT RETURNS ACROSS OUR WHOLE AREA
BUT MOST OF IT STILL ISN`T REACHING THE GROUND. THE LOWER LEVELS
SHOULD CONTINUE TO MOISTEN UP OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS AND THEN
WE SHOULD START TO SEE MORE PRECIP REACHING THE GROUND. DID TWEAK
HOURLY TEMPS AND DEWPOINTS TO MATCH UP WITH LATEST OBS. SENDING NEW
ZONES FOR THE POP INCREASE DISCUSSED ABOVE.
