DISCUSSION...
STRONG/SEVERE STORMS WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE AT THE BEGINNING OF
THIS FORECAST CYCLE...7 PM CDT. HOWEVER...WITHIN A FEW HOURS...THE
EVENT SHOULD BEGIN TO DIMINISH QUICKLY. ONLY THE FAR SOUTHEAST
PART OF OUR FORECAST AREA WILL STILL HAVE A CHANCE OF RAIN BY
EARLY SATURDAY.

AFTER A DRY SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT...RAIN CHANCES WILL
REENTER OUR FORECAST AREA IN THE WEST ON SUNDAY. THIS EPISODE OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IS UNLIKELY TO INVOLVE SEVERE
STORMS...AS THE SURFACE FRONT AND LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE WELL
SOUTH OF US.

A CHANCE OF RAIN WILL PERSIST THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...THEN DRY
WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOUT 10 DEGREES BELOW THE SEASONAL AVERAGE
THIS WEEKEND...THEN WARM BACK ABOVE AVERAGE BY THE END OF NEXT
WEEK.
