PATCHY FOG EARLY THIS MORNING MAY REDUCE VISIBILITIES TO LESS THAN
A MILE AT TIMES. THE FOG SHOULD QUICKLY LIFT BY MID MORNING.

A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL SAG SLOWLY SOUTH ACROSS THE AREA TODAY AND
TONIGHT. A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON ALONG AND
AHEAD OF THE FRONT BUT WEAK WIND FIELDS WILL PRECLUDE ANY
ORGANIZED SEVERE WEATHER.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

TUESDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL.
WEDNESDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE LATE TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY AS
AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM MOVES EAST FROM THE ROCKIES INTO THE
PLAINS. THERE MAY BE A BRIEF LULL IN STORM COVERAGE THURSDAY
BEFORE CHANCES INCREASE AGAIN BY THE WEEKEND AS A STRONGER UPPER
LEVEL STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES THE AREA. SEVERE WEATHER CHANCES
WILL BE HIGHEST OVER THE WEEKEND...AND HEAVY RAINFALL MAY RESULT
IN SOME FLOODING CONCERNS GIVEN THE LARGE AMOUNTS OF RAIN THAT
HAVE FALLEN RECENTLY IN SOME PLACES.
