-- Changed Discussion --
No changes were needed for the late eve update Previous... Changes for the early eve were primarily cosmetic as slight rain chances will continue for areas east of I 79 due to the presence of the persistent shortwave trough and abundant moisture over the region. The residual rain chances will fade with the setting sun, but boundary layer humidity and a clearing sky is expected to support fog development. The high dewpoints will again limit the temperature drop, so morning lows will again be well above the averages.
