DISCUSSION
 
 
AN ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH  
THIS WEEK. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE COMMON ACROSS THE REGION THIS  
MORNING INTO THIS AFTERNOON, BEFORE TAPERING OFF TONIGHT. TUESDAY LOOKS TO BE  
THE ONE MAINLY DRY DAY, ALTHOUGH IT WILL STILL BE CLOUDY. THE NEXT SYSTEM IN THE  
SERIES WILL THEN BRING A THREAT OF SHOWERS AS EARLY AS WEDNESDAY, WITH  
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO LATE THURSDAY. IT APPEARS WE  
WILL FINALLY DRY OUT FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY BEFORE YET ANOTHER SYSTEM APPROACHES FOR  
LATE IN THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
