    ...SHIFTING TO A WETTER PATTERN...

    A FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL BE THE FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT
    OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...BEGINNING LATER TONIGHT AND CONTINUING
    THROUGH AT LEAST THURSDAY NIGHT. THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BECOME VERY
    WARM AND HUMID SOUTH OF THIS FRONT. SO THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF
    MOISTURE FOR ANY OF THESE STORMS TO WORK WITH.

    THE BEST CHANCE OF STORMS WILL BE LATER TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY
    NIGHT. THERE WILL BE A LOWER CONFIDENCE IN STORMS FRIDAY INTO THE
    WEEKEND AS AN UPPER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS NORTH AND MAY
    SUPPRESS STORM DEVELOPMENT IN SPITE OF THE LINGERING FRONTAL
    BOUNDARY.

    SO WHILE THERE IS CONCERN FOR SOME URBAN AND SMALL STREAM
    FLOODING IN THIS REGIME...THERE IS SOME SMALL POTENTIAL FOR FLASH
    FLOODING AS WELL ESPECIALLY WHERE ANY STORMS BECOME PERSISTENT OR
    TRAVERSE REPEATEDLY ACROSS THE SAME AREAS.

    STAY TUNED FOR LATER FORECASTS ON THIS EVOLVING POTENTIAL FOR SOME
    HEAVIER RAINFALL.
