A few storms continue across the area this evening, but less

but will still see scattered afternoon and evening storms. Current

vicinity of several terminals. This activity should continue
through 02z and have VCTS in for this. If any storm moves over a
terminal it may cause brief MVFR to IFR conditions. Storm chances
will return between 17-18z Sunday with VFR prevailing and MVFR to
IFR tempo conditions with any storm impacting a terminal.
