.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An upper level system, currently crossing the Great Basin, will
bring an increasing chance for widespread rain showers and
thunderstorms late Friday and continuing through the weekend. The
best chance for heavier rain will occur Saturday afternoon and
into Sunday. Rainfall amounts of a half inch to one inch will be
common with locally higher amounts possible. As the system moves
east into the lower Mississippi River Valley...rain will gradually
decrease from west to east Sunday afternoon.

Rain and thunderstorm chances return Tuesday/Wednesday as a quick
moving trough, and the associated cold front, move through.
