.SOUNDING DISCUSSION...

The 00z sounding shows a somewhat unstable airmass with MLCAPE of
1200 J/KG and marginal lapse rates of 5.8 C/KM in the mid-levels.
There is quite a bit of dry air in the mid-levels and some weak
capping is noted around 700mb. This dry air has also greatly
reduced atmospheric moisture content with PW values well below
normal at 1.65 inches. Overall, the moisture and instability
profiles support some isolated convective development overnight.
