.DISCUSSION...

ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THIS
AFTERNOON WITH THE MAIN THREAT FROM THUNDERSTORMS BEING LIGHTNING...
LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS UP TO 40 MPH...AND BRIEF HEAVY RAINFALL.
THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD DIMINISH THIS EVENING.  A COLD FRONT WILL
MOVE INTO THE AREA SATURDAY MORNING...WHICH WILL SHIFT WINDS OUT
OF THE NORTHEAST AND BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
TO THE AREA BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON.  A BETTER CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS
WITH A MORE WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINFALL WILL COME ON SUNDAY WHEN
INCREASED MOISTURE WILL SPREAD INTO THE AREA IN EASTERLY UPSLOPE FLOW.
THIS WILL ALSO SERVE TO COOL OFF HIGH TEMPERATURES A FEW MORE DEGREES.
