DISCUSSION
 
 
AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT ACROSS THE REGION  
TODAY INTO TONIGHT. AS IT DOES, ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP. A FEW OF THESE STORMS MAY BE STRONG TO SEVERE.  
GIVEN THE COPIOUS MOISTURE IN PLACE, MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL ONLY  
BOTTOM OUT IN THE 60-70% RANGE. CONDITIONS WILL DRY OUT ON SUNDAY, BUT  
MORE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE BACK IN THE FORECAST BY MONDAY.
