.DISCUSSION...
Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible later today, mainly
in the higher terrain, and will dissipate quickly after sunset.
Overnight, approaching front will bring increasing cloudiness and
decreasing likelihood for any morning fog. Front pushes through the
area by tomorrow afternoon with scattered convection that should
end by early evening. With limited moisture and timing of front
limiting instability, do not expect any severe thunderstorms,
although cannot rule out an isolated strong cell in maximum
heating, particularly over the southern half of the area. Post
front will see a noticeable change in airmass with temperatures
dropping a few degrees below climatology and dewpoints approaching
the middle 60s into the weekend. Made minor tweaks to current
temperature trend, otherwise forecast looks good for now.
