Daily Weather Story Summary:
 A weather disturbance will approach our area late this afternoon and evening bringing an increasing chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Present indications suggest the best timing for the showers and storms in our area will be between 300 pm and 800 pm from west to east, with most of rain shifting out of our east and southeast counties by dawn Friday. The threat for severe weather will be just south of the area where the better instability and shear will be present later this afternoon. Quiet weather settles in for Friday and Saturday, and then a prolonged period of showers and thunderstorms sets in late Saturday night and continues into at least the first half of next week.
