.DISCUSSION...
A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE NEAR AND AROUND THE INCIDENT
SITE INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS. THE RISK FOR A HEAVIER
THUNDERSTORM AND CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING WILL INCREASE THIS
AFTERNOON AS WE GET SOME ADDITIONAL HEATING. THE MOST LIKELY TIME
FOR ANY HEAVIER RAIN AND LIGHTNING APPEARS TO BE AROUND THE 2-5 PM
TIME FRAME, ALTHOUGH THE CHANCE OF DIRECT IMPACTS FROM A
THUNDERSTORM IS STILL 50/50. SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BE MOVING
TOWARDS THE NORTH-NORTHEAST TODAY AT ABOUT 20 MPH.

PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL DECREASE THIS EVENING AFTER ABOUT 7 PM AND
IT APPEARS THAT THINGS SHOULD STAY DRY OVERNIGHT, ALTHOUGH AN
ISOLATED SHOWER CANNOT ENTIRELY BE RULED OUT.
