.DISCUSSION...

Most of the rain will clear east of the forecast area this
afternoon into early this evening, although showers and drizzle
will continue in many areas along and north of I-20 later
tonight and even through Monday. RH values will continue to
remain relatively high, even into the afternoon hours, over the
next few days. There is some potential for at least patchy light
fog late tonight into early Monday morning, but no dense fog
is anticipated. Winds from the west today and tonight will
gradually trend around to the north and northwest at the surface
by later tomorrow. There are no fire weather concerns over the
next several days.
