304 AM EDT Sat Jul 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...The best chance to see rain and a few embedded
thunderstorms will be early today as low pressure moves into the
area. Very little, if any activity, is then expected later today and
tonight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will then redevelop
Sunday, mainly during the afternoon and evening, in an unstable
airmass ahead of a cold front. Otherwise, modestly warm but very
humid conditions will persist through the weekend. High pressure
will bring cooler and drier air to the region Monday and Tuesday.
