.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE
TODAY INTO THIS EVENING AS A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY SETTLES OVER
THE REGION. THIS BOUNDARY WILL ACT AS A FOCUS FOR DEVELOPMENT AS
DISTURBANCES MOVING IN FROM THE WEST WILL HELP TO PRODUCE STRONG
STORMS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE IN THE SLOWER MOVING
STORMS OR WHERE ANY TRAINING SETS UP. IF SO...FLOODING IS POSSIBLE
ESPECIALLY AT LOCATIONS THAT HAVE SATURATED GROUNDS.

ELEVATED RAIN CHANCES WILL CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY AS THE WEAK
FRONTAL BOUNDARY LINGERS OVER THE REGION.

ANOTHER PERIOD OF HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE SUNDAY INTO
MONDAY...AND THIS COULD POSE TRAVEL IMPACTS DURING THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. VERY DEEP GULF MOISTURE COMBINED WITH FAVORABLE WINDS
ALOFT WILL HELP TO PRODUCE STRONG STORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS.
THESE STORMS MAY ALSO BE SLOW MOVING. GIVEN THAT WET GROUNDS MIGHT
ALREADY BE IN PLACE...IF THIS FORECAST DOES VERIFY WE COULD BE
FACING A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SITUATION BY MONDAY.
