.DISCUSSION...

Showers and storms will continue through this afternoon and
evening on the eastern side of a 500 mb ridge. This activity
should diminish with the loss of daytime heating. The upper ridge
over the region will weaken into Monday and Tuesday as a trough
moves across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. This will coincide
with increasing rain chances as a weak front moves in from the
North. Have placed likely POPs near and just ahead of the front
with those higher pops transitioning from the North on Monday to
the South on Tuesday. Rain chances should decrease by Wednesday as
drier air moves in. The very low to zero rain chances should
continue through Friday before chances increase as another weak
front tries to move into the region for the weekend.

Fairly typical summer weather expected on Monday with hotter than
normal temperatures. Rain chances will increase Monday/Tuesday as
a front moves southward across the forecast area. Some isolated-
scattered convection will remain possible across the southeast

across the north. No weather-related fire weather concerns are
expected at this time.
