EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Quiet weather in store for the remainder of the work week with an

increase slightly this weekend as the next upper level system
progresses across the Plains. A tropical system progged to move
onshore in southern Texas will work its way northward this weekend
and into early next week, but models currently keep the bulk of
rainfall associated with this system south of the area.
