ENOUGH MOISTURE IS AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS MOST AREAS INTO MID WEEK. LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN
AND GUSTY WINDS ARE POSSIBLE. A FEW STRONGER STORMS COULD PRODUCE
HEAVY RAINFALL ALONG WITH LOCALIZED FLOODING. A BACKDOOR FRONT TUESDAY
WILL HELP FOCUS AND INCREASE MOISTURE EVEN MORE FOR THE
REST OF THE WEEK.THE REGION SHOULD START TO DRY OUT DURING THE
WEEKEND AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE AREA.
