.DISCUSSION...
Tweaked temperatures, sky cover, and PoPs based on current trends
and short term guidance. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will
develop this afternoon and evening, and some may be strong enough
to produce damaging winds and small hail. The latest SPC day one
outlook nudged the slight risk a bit further east to include our
plateau counties. Will continue to monitor trends and forecasts
throughout the day. As we head into the overnight hours, a more
widespread line of showers (with embedded thunder possible) will
push through the area as the trough axis crosses overhead. By this
point, the atmosphere should be more stable, and severe
conditions are not anticipated overnight at this time.
