increased the fcst cloud cover overnight and into tomorrow as
soundings indicate a fairly thick layer of mid/high moisture will
be moving in from the west. GFS is even showing a bit of lift at
500mb toward mid morning as weak impulses move closer/into the
area. But considering the very dry sub-cloud bases, suspect that
if anything falls it'll evaporate before hitting the ground. Rest
of the package looks good. The evening update should already be
out. 47
