.DISCUSSION...
Moisture has made it into the region with an increase in showers
and thunderstorms expected tonight through Sunday. Locally heavy
rain and flooding is expected through this period. Now models
showing a little bit of a downturn, especially west going into
early next week with upper ridge building across region. As this
ridge gets broken down toward midweek, expect moisture to spread
back to the west with more widespread showers and thunderstorms
expected by Wednesday and Thursday. More drying possible going
toward next weekend as ridge tries to rebuild over the Four
Corners region.
