weaken after midnight with skies becoming mostly clear. Will have
a similar day on Saturday as we had today with a bit of an
increase in coverage of storms as moisture should be increasing.
For tonight...made some adjustments to the weather/pop grids to
remove the thunder and to clear out inland areas. Will update the
zones with this change. Rest of forecast looks on track.
