The weather balloon data this morning shows an increase in moisture, and it's a little more unstable. So, a little more active today and tomorrow with more coverage of showers and thunderstorms. Rainfall is expected to be light and spotty, with gusty winds and lightning the main threats with the thunderstorms. A little bit of a decrease on Sunday, but we see a higher risk of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday.
