NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT. THE NAM HAS ANOTHER WEAK DISTURBANCE ENTERING
OUR NORTHERN COUNTIES OVERNIGHT. WILL HAVE A POSSIBILITY OF
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO THIS EVENING, WITH RAIN
CHANCES DROPPING OFF FOR ALL BUT OUR NORTHERN COUNTIES (MAINLY NORTH

DANGEROUS LIGHTNING, LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AND GUSTY WINDS. A
COUPLE OF STORMS MAY PRODUCE STRONG DOWNBURST WINDS LATE THIS
