.DISCUSSION...

An upper level system will move across the this evening with heavy
rain and a few embedded thunderstorms. Gusty E/SE winds continue
this evening but should begin to taper off early Monday morning.
The upper low lingers over the area on Monday and could lead to
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly in the
afternoon hours. But drier air streaming into the area aloft
should help to keep much of any additional rainfall at bay. Winds
switch to the SW then to the NW Monday into Tuesday. But enough
lingering surface moisture should result in Min RH values staying
in the 50 percent range.

The rest of the week and into the weekend is a little unsettled
as a few separate system will move across the area and bring
light to moderate rain.

Fog potential over the next few days: Patchy fog is possible tonight
under the heaviest showers. Then again Monday night into Tuesday.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
