.DISCUSSION...
...More Rain Is On The Way...

Stationary front to our south will continue to be the focus for
clouds and potential for rain. A weak wave of low pressure will
ripple east along the front this afternoon resulting in a period
of rain for the central and southern Appalachians this evening. 
The weather pattern remains unsettled and supports several more
opportunities for measurable rainfall for the next 7 to 10 days. 
This suggest fire danger will remain low, to no more than
moderate, through the remainder of this month.
