.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 321 PM EDT MON MAY 30 2016/

SHORT TERM /Tonight through Tuesday Night/...

The cu field on the west side of remnant circulation has really
expanded in the last hour as CAPE values continue to rise to just
over 1000 J/KG areawide. In addition to the increased
clouds...isolated showers continue to pop up but thunder has been
non-existent thus far. Although coverage will increase
slightly...will limit to only low end chance in the grids for the
northern tier and pretty much what you see is what you get.

Circulation remains over the coast of the Carolinas through Tue
afternoon keeping most of the deep moisture with it. We should see
a more active Gulf seabreeze which could affect SW zones late in
the day but by and large expect a carbon copy of todays activity
with slight chance to low end chance pops mainly during the
afternoon hours.

Went close to guidance for both tonights lows with limited cloud
cover as well as tomorrows highs.

LONG TERM /Wednesday through Monday/...
