.DISCUSSION...Another day of monsoon moisture will result in
scattered showers and thunderstorms...especially during the
afternoon and evening. Thunderstorms can be expected to produce
gusty outflow winds...but also a good chance for wetting rain.
Lightning and outflow winds will issues...but moderate temperatures
and humidity should lessen the fire weather impact. The monsoon
moisture flow begins to diminish by Friday as the upper winds
become more westerly...but scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms are still possible.
