STILL VERY WARM AND MUGGY WITH A PAIR OF WET MORNINGS

HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER SYNOPSIS... DESPITE OF AFTERNOON CLOUDS AND VERY ISOLATED RAIN SHOWERS...CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION ARE LOW THROUGH MIDNIGHT. THEN...REMNANTS OF A STRONG DISTURBANCE OVER SOUTHERN INDIANA EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHEAST INTO EXTREME SOUTHERN WEST VIRGINIA AFTER MIDNIGHT. EXPECT ANOTHER WARM AND MUGGY NIGHT WITH HIGH HUMIDITY...LOW LEVEL CLOUDS OR FOG DEVELOPING DURING THE PREDAWN HOURS. A SHORTWAVE WOULD ENHANCE SHOWERS AND STORMS THURSDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA. THE ENVIRONMENT WILL REMAIN VERY WARM...HUMID AND UNSETTLED...AS WEAK DISTURBANCES CROSS. ANY CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS COULD EASILY PRODUCE DOWNPOURS...AND CAUSE LOCALIZED WATER ISSUES. FURTHERMORE...AREAS THAT GET HIT REPEATEDLY DURING THE WEEK...WILL BECOME VULNERABLE TO MORE SERIOUS FLASH FLOODING ALONG SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS. STRONG RISES ON SOME HEADWATERS RIVERS COULD EVEN OCCUR. A DRYING TREND WILL TRY TO ENSUE FOR THE WEEKEND BUT A FEW SHOWERS AND STORMS CANNOT BE RULED OUT...ESPECIALLY ON SATURDAY.
