The moist westerly flow continues, and we'll see another fairly active weather day. The models continue to show a little drier and somewhat more stable air mass this weekend, but not sure I trust it. I do expect a decrease in the thunderstorm coverage, but I still believe we'll see a couple in the area each afternoon, and even an increase by early next week.
