.DISCUSSION...

NOW THAT THE HEAT OF THE DAY THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DISSIPATED WILL
FOCUS ON THE WORD OF THE DAY FOR SATURDAY...HOT. UPPER 90S TO NEAR
100 DEGREES CAN BE EXPECTED WITH HEAT INDEX VALUES OF 102 TO 108
DEGREES. SHOWERS TOMORROW WILL BE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN MUCH LIKE
THIS AFTERNOON. LOOKING AT THE MOISTURE RETURN IF ONE AREA WAS
PREFERRED IT WOULD BE THE NORTHEAST AS A BACKDOOR ENTRANCE OF
MOISTURE WILL RETURN TO THE AREA FROM THE EAST. THE BEST MOISTURE
SHOULD REMAIN TO THE NORTH AND EAST OF THE AREA TOMORROW...BUT
WILL NEED TO MONITOR FOR MORE COVERAGE THAN FORECAST BASED ON
TEMPERATURES AND BOUNDARIES IN PLACE. UPDATES FOR THE NIGHT HAVE
BEEN SENT.
