DISCUSSION...
Today`s shower and thunderstorm coverage continues to weaken and dissipate,
and anticipate radar to be rain free very shortly. Models are indicating
that our area`s precipitable water values (which have been above two
inches over the past couple of days and have helped to bring parts of
our area some much needed rain) should fall under two inches through
the end of the week. Forecast of lower rain chances covers this scenario
well. No major update/change to the forecast is planned this evening.
