.DISCUSSION...
A warm front will linger in the area the next couple of days. This
feature will trigger showers across the area and perhaps a few 
afternoon thunderstorms. For the latter half of the week, the 
front will head north to the Ohio Valley, taking with it the bulk 
of the showers. Dry weather and warmer temperatures will dominate
from Wednesday through next weekend. Winds will be light under 
high pressure.
