.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL DIMINISH BY EARLY TUESDAY AS UPPER
RIDGING BECOMES THE DOMINANT WEATHER FEATURE. HOTTER TEMPERATURES
ARE EXPECTED AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES...HOWEVER CURING VEGETATION
WILL AID IN LOWERING THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY WITH TIME. THIS WILL
HELP KEEPING HEAT INDEX VALUES FROM BECOMING TOO OPPRESSIVE.
