.DISCUSSION...Showers will diminish overnight but the probability
of showers and thunderstorms will increase again on Thursday
afternoon and evening as an upper level low offshore from

aloft. The low will move inland Friday with weaker instability
but an increase in moisture for a wet, cooler day and evening.
There is the potential for gusty outflow winds, heavy rain, and
small hail in and near any thunderstorm. Drier weather with a
warming trend is expected Saturday into early next week.
