.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Some isolated to scattered showers will continue through the

conditions through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Breezy conditions will occur Saturday afternoon ahead of the next

weather for the latter half of the week as another storm system
moves into the area.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
