.DISCUSSION...
Active pattern will continue this week, with more opportunities
for wetting rains by the middle of the week. Rain chances will
stay south of the area on Monday, but a warm front will move north
by Tuesday morning, bringing in deep Gulf moisture. Scattered showers
and even a few isolated to scattered storms will be possible during 
the afternoon and evening. A stronger upper-level disturbance will
bring heavier and more widespread rain showers late Tuesday night
and Wednesday morning, before tapering them off by Wednesday evening.
Thus, mixing heights will be low and dispersion poor for the next 
several days. 
Fog potential over the next few days: Patchy fog, some locally dense 
is possible late tonight across the entire region.
Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
