.DISCUSSION... 
Slightly higher moisture levels along I-10 and southward may lead to some isolated 
showers and a stray thunderstorm, but most locations will remain rain-free for the next 
several days. Locations nearer the coast have a slightly greater chance of 
seeing rain, but even there the chances will not be great.
