...HIGHER HUMIDITY AND BETTER CHANCE OF WETTING RAIN...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL PERSIST
INTO THE NIGHT ACROSS ALL BUT THE FAR NORTH. COVERAGE OF STORMS
WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE NORTHWARD MONDAY WITH SCATTERED TO
NUMEROUS WET STORMS FOR THE ENTIRE DISTRICT ON MONDAY INTO
TUESDAY.

.DISCUSSION...HUMIDITY HAS COME UP ACROSS ALL BUT THE FAR
NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE DISTRICT TODAY. HUMIDITY WILL KEEP
RISING OVER THE ENTIRE AREA TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY AND REMAIN
ELEVATED TUESDAY. THIS WILL KEEP SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACTIVE
ACROSS THE REGION INTO TUESDAY WITH A GOOD CHANCE OF WETTING RAINS
WITH ANY STORMS. A REDUCTION IN SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE
IS EXPECTED OVER THE SOUTH TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND ACROSS PRETTY
MUCH THE ENTIRE DISTRICT WEDNESDAY. HUMIDITY WILL ALSO START TO
LOWER AGAIN WEDNESDAY BUT SUFFICIENT MOISTURE WILL REMAIN ACROSS
THE REGION FOR AFTERNOON AND EVENING MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS EACH
DAY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.
