.DISCUSSION...

Isolated to scattered rain and snow showers will continue through
the evening, although chances for wetting rains remains low. A
warming trend is on tap for this weekend with a noticeable increase
in temperatures by next week as a ridge of high pressure builds over
the west. This will also bring drier conditions along with generally
light winds.


Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
