.DISCUSSION...
SCT STORMS ON THE SEABREEZE SO FAR THIS AFTN EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE
WITH SUNSET LATER THIS EVENING. OTHERWISE NOT PLANNING ON ANY HUGE
CHANGES WITH THE FCST FOR THE WEEKEND...WITH THE BEST RAIN CHCS ON
SAT (UNFORTUNATELY). PROGS KEEPING WITH THE FCST OF PWS INCREASING
TO AROUND 2" TOMORROW AFTN AND WITH DAYTIME HEATING/SEABREEZE CAN-
NOT ARGUE TOO MUCH WITH THE FCST OF CHC/SCT POPS FOR THE AFTN HRS.
SLIGHTLY DRIER BY SUN (PWS AOA 1.7") SHOULD SUPPORT WIDELY SCT/ISO
GENERALLY DIURNAL PCPN ALONG THE SEABREEZE. THEREAFTER...WE SHOULD
START TO SEE THE UPPER PATTERN CHANGE WITH THE UPPER RIDGE SEEMING
TO NEED A FEW DAYS TO ESTABLISH ITSELF OVER THE SRN PLAINS. BUILD-
ING RIDGE ALOFT WILL LIKELY TRANSLATE TO A WARMER/DRIER WX PATTERN
BY NEXT WEEKEND. 41
