.DISCUSSION...
With monsoonal flow established, deep moisture will be in place
to help generate daily showers and storms this afternoon through
the early part of next week. Storms will also be possible later
next week, although chances for wetting precip will be backing
off just a bit. Meanwhile, slow moving storms could lead to
localized flooding through the upcoming weekend.

&&

...Percentages shown in the sky/weather portion reflect
