THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE WEEK. THERE IS STILL ENOUGH MOISTURE
AROUND FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS FOR SCATTERED MOUNTAIN AND
ISOLATED LOWLAND COVERAGE. SLOW STORM MOVEMENT COULD LEAD TO
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. AFTER TUESDAY MOISTURE WILL BE SHUT OFF AND
MOST ACTIVITY WILL BE MOUNTAIN BASED. TEMPERATURES WILL RUN ABOUT
5 TO 7 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. THE
LOWLANDS WILL SEE 100 DEGREE OR NEAR 100 DEGREE HIGH TEMPERATURES
EACH DAY WITH MIN RH`S IN THE UPPER TEENS AND 20S.  &&
