.DISCUSSION...

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop and spread west
to east this evening with the chances diminishing by around 3-6AM
on Sunday. There could be a few isolated thunderstorms on Sunday
as another upper level disturbance moves through the area. Any of
the showers/thunderstorms could produce a brief period of winds
around 20-30MPH. No discernible front will be moving through so
winds will generally be out of the south overnight and then more
from the southwest on Sunday and be 5-10 knots outside of any
thunderstorms. Total rainfall through Sunday night will vary
widely with the lowest amounts in the west, less than a tenth of
an inch, with values possibly around 1 inch in the east.

There could be a break in the rainfall Sunday night with rain
chances increasing again on Monday. Showers and thunderstorms
return again for Monday with possibly a strong storm or two.
Showers and thunderstorms linger into Tuesday. Due to the ongoing
rainfall, minimum RH values through the week will be above 50
percent.

Would not expect widespread fog for the next few days but patchy
fog is possible in areas overnight during breaks in the rainfall.

There is no potential for Red Flag Conditions for the next few
days.
