 .DISCUSSION...
 Showers and thunderstorms are expected through Thursday, in the 
 vicinity of a stalled frontal boundary, with activity more common in 
 the afternoon and evening hours. Efficient and slow moving storms 
 could lead to localized high water issues, particularly across the 
 mountains, but overall rainfall will be beneficial. A late-week cold 
 front should bring drier air some sunshine for the weekend.
