.DISCUSSION...

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TODAY,
AS A DISTURBANCE LIFTS NORTHWARD FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO. THE
GREATEST CHANCE FOR ACTIVITY WILL BE ACROSS AREAS WEST OF INTERSTATE

AFTER MIDNIGHT. SHOWER/STORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE ON THURSDAY AND
FRIDAY, AS AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE AND SURFACE BOUNDARY MOVE INTO
THE REGION. THE ACTIVITY MAY OCCUR IN SEVERAL ROUNDS OF PRECIP, HOWEVER
UNCERTAINTY IS FAIRLY HIGH AS TO WHEN THE BEST CHANCES OF RAIN WILL BE.
LOW CLOUDS ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO PERSIST THROUGH THE NEXT FEW DAYS,
THOUGH MIXING HEIGHTS WILL RISE WELL ABOVE 3000 FT DURING THE AFTERNOON
HOURS.
